I've a task list example, but i don't know how to send you the file.
By the way i did some testing and verified that if a create a new task list the multi-sort works well, but if i use my tasklists or copy part of the tasklist to a new tasklist the multi-sort doesn't work. For now and because i really new the sort working i moved back to version 6.5.10 where i've no problem in the sort.
Not sure whether this is me not doing things right, but...
I have noticed in the past that the 'Hide Parent Tasks' goes missing from the 'Options' dropdown in the filter bar.
I noticed this quite a while ago, but changed the entry in the 'Show' dropdown a few times and 'Hide Parent Tasks' seemed to return. So I figured the visibility of this option may be clever and affected by what the other filters are doing.
However, it has just happened again, and I can't seem to get it back (short of restarting the application). The thing is, in List view, the parents are hidden, which means the option is in effect - the entry in the dropbox just isn't visible.
Is this a bug, or am I just not up to speed with how this function is supposed to work?
I am not sure what else to tell you...
- The option is not checked in the global preferences.
- I seem to recall setting the Option in the dropdown some time ago for my main tasklist.
- The option does not currently appear in the dropdown, for any of my tasklists. I have restarted and rebooted.
- The Listview does not show parents.
oh thanks for your response. I've been googling my fingers off and I can't see why it shouldn't work in IIS. I'm not an expert on BOM matters, but I've tried to look at the generated file with a hex view and saw 6 BOM bytes but wikipedia says that there should be 3. It looks like the UTF-8 BOM bytes, but twice.
Could that be the reason for the malfunction? I tried re-saving it with my text editor and it immediately fixes the problem.
After restart of TDL (on Win 7 Prof.) I could reproduce a strange behaviour. Select the list - type a new category - the cursor jumps to first position after every letter. It seem that there is an automatic ENTER command. When typing "Telefon" I got these values:
For what it is worth, I seem to recall a similar behaviour in one of the beta versions of 6.6, but forgot to mention it.
I could get around it, so carried on with what I was doing. In my case, using your example, I also would have ended up with the 7 entries shown above in my categories list.
I'm running WinXP SP3.
[Edit] I just checked. This behaviour only occurs (for me anyway) when you have the category drop down showing, and start typing. To get around it, don't open the dropdown...
FWIW, those 'auto-droplists' are amongst the most complex part of the code because they have to make 'clever' choices regarding the user's probable intent based on the state of the control and what the user's last action was/is.
This bug was introduced when I replaced some more complex code with a single function call, because I hadn't commented the code adequately.
