Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 158208
Filter creation doesn't occur when filters window is open
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:06 EST
Description of problem:
Creating a filter while the filter window is open will go through and complete
successfully, although the filter you are trying to will not ever be created.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the filters window to view filters
2. Behind the open window try and create a filter
3. Filter dialog will close successfully
Filter dialog closes with no error yet no filter is created
Filter dialog should either close with an error or create the filter.
I just tried this in Evolution 2.2.2:
1: Open the filters window to view filters
2: Behind the open window try and create a filter (by right-clicking on an
email; Create Rule from Message->Filter on something... OK); filter does not
appear in the existing filter dialog.
3a: Press "Cancel" button in the filter dialog, reopen the filter dialog.
Filter created in stage does appear in the new filter dialog
3b: Press "Ok" button in the filter dialog, reoper the filter dialog: filter
created in stage 2 does not appear.
So it looks like a the filter dialog really ought to update its state if you do
stage 2; arguably the filter dialog ought to be "instant apply" as well,
replacing the Cancel/OK buttons with a single "OK" button.
Please check upstream; if the bug is not already filed, please file one, and
link this bug to it. Please CC me on the new or existing bug; thanks!
