files seen in tree not showing up in dropdowns
« on: February 08, 2012, 03:46:38 AM »
The pic shows an older NI.  To visualize the problem, pretend funinja01.bam isn't in the dropdown on the edit side.

Thanks.

Except that it is there and it says funinj01.bam, because funinja01.bam wouldn't be a valid filename (> 8 chars). Not sure what you're saying.

It's possible we look only in Chitin.key (BIFF access) and the override folder when populating the list, although I'm not sure why we wouldn't hit also the other domains (I don't recall changing this, so it must have been something Jon did—he was actually rewriting NI, so it's dramatically different under-the-hood than older versions, even before we started poking it).

What a weird pairing;  missing this

yet catching an extra letter when the pic shows the obviously-referred-to file.

@devSin

It definitely changed in this last version.  NI would allow editing of files buried multiple folders deep in any of the standard overriding folders.  Since no one's updating the version numbers, is there some way to know whose version is available?  I'd like to skip these kinds of releases.

The old versions are still available from Jon's site (if it's still up).

His new codebase never made it out of beta. Any recent version is based off the newer codebase, however.

Because I don't remember changing anything that would affect this, and because Taimon and myself are the only people I'm aware of to have modified the source, I'm assuming this behavior existed in Jon's sources.

Which means you can either use one of the newer builds, or you can use on of the old "official" builds. Or you can use both. Whatever best suits your needs.

Okay, so maybe I should explain.
The "latest version" phordicus refers to is one I compiled because I needed a NI that worked on LInux. It includes this. Later, others also needed something that worked on Linux, so I posted my build in public.

I have found the problem. NI uses a map to hold the directory hierarchy. In this case a folder named "scripts" is added, but it tries to retrieve the folder named "Scripts". Hence nothing from "Scripts" et al. gets added to the list of resources.
