Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 175310
Trying to create a new appointment in a non-writable calendar should warn you, rather than just silently being greyed out
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:22 EST
Description of problem:
If one tried to create a new appointment with a non-writable calendar selected,
the new appointment dialog will pop up, but everything except the ability to
select a different calendar will be greyed out. It should tell you _why_ it's
greyed out, as one might not notice that it is.
Additionally, if one changes to an editable calendar, one should not be able to
go back to a non-editable one. (the option should be grey)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Subscribe to a webcal
2. Select the webcal
3. Attempt to create a new appointment
Can't type anything; greyed out except for the calendar selection area.
Tell you why you can't type anything (or not allow one to try to create an
appointment while in a non-writable calendar, and give a dialog box saying why).
Latest version of the code (tested with evolution-2.5.2-1) has a slightly
different layout that may be clearer.
Confirmed with evolution-2.0.2-22 on i386 (vmware), and with rawhide.
(it picks the selected calendar as the calendar for the appointment/meeting)
I've filed this upstream here: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=324658
The upstream bug report indicates the problem as been fixed and, indeed, when I
try to create an appointment in a read-only calendar using Evolution 2.8.0 in
RHEL-5, I get an error dialog that reads:
Cannot create a new event
You have a read-only calendar source selected. Change to Calendar View and
highlight a calendar that can accept appointments.
This bug was never proposed for a RHEL-4 update. Is it alright to resolve this
as CURRENTRELEASE for RHEL-5?
As far as I'm concerned, closed CURRENTRELEASE for RHEL5 is fine.
Thanks, closing as NEXTRELEASE since RHEL-5 hasn't quite shipped yet.
