Browse button clears list in "Choose Paths"

Post by billt777 » Fri Jan 26, 2007 2:40 pm

Is it expected behavior that if you have a number of paths setup in the "Choose Paths" list that they would be completely removed from the list when you select a path using the Browse button? I could see them being unchecked, but it seems like incorrect behavior that they are removed from the list.
The only path it keeps is the Samples list

By the way, I noticed that there is a difference in how the .cfg file writes out the paths. If I change the "PathText" to "Path" and reload the.cfg file then it works as I would expect.

PathText=C:\Excel_Add-in
Path=C:\Program Files\Advanced Find and Replace 3\Samples

Having the "PathText" also inhibits the path from appearing in the drop-down list, but works fine once it is changed to "Path"

It's not quite clear what do you mean. I will explain how does it
work:

"PathText=" is used for saving path or paths (separated by ; ) which are
displayed in "Search Path".

"Path=" is used for saving all paths which are displayed when drop
down list is shown.

When you press Browse button it clears "PathText" and put selected path
into "PathText". It also removes this (selected) path from drop down list
items. It also holds maximum number of items = 10 in drop down list.

For example, you have the text in "PathText" field:
C:\My Documents\;D:\Work\Files
and items shown in drop down list:
C:\Job\Resumes
C:\Hobbies\Travel
D:\Backup\Job

So when you press "Browse" button and select the following path:
C:\Hobbies\Travel

the "PathText" field will be C:\Hobbies\Travel
and this path will be removed from drop down list which will be:
C:\Job\Resumes
D:\Backup\Job

Therefore Browse button does not clear the paths.
Maybe you have more that 10 paths in drop down items?
In fact we have found the ways how to optimize it. We will try to
integrate these changes in one of future versions.
