Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-1115) Value editor settings are not used and the menu displays wrong entries
Date Sun, 18 Sep 2016 19:31:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSTUDIO-1115?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15501516#comment-15501516

Stefan Seelmann commented on DIRSTUDIO-1115:
--------------------------------------------

The text editor is only meant for string attributes (e.g. Directory String attributes), but
also works for binary attributes if it can be UTF-8 decoded to a string. (There is some inconsistency
in handling binary values that I'll fix.)

But in your case, if the encoding is unknown, we would need a more enhanced editor where you
can choose the encoding in the editor windows and then the editor tries to decode the value
and let you edit it.

>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-M10 (2.0.0.v20151221-M10)
>         Environment: Windows 7 x64
> Linux Debian 8.5 x64

>            Priority: Minor

> The following two issues are really close related to each other, so I'm reporting them
here together. If they should be reported separately, then please indicate so, and I'll separate
them.
> I was trying to set custom value editor for some attributes (vacationInfo octet stream)
when I discovered that the settings are ignored. I added a new entry into Value Editors (Eclipse
Preferences -> LDAP Browser -> Value Editors):
> attribute: vacationInfo
> value editor: "Text Editor"
> Applied the settings (even restarted Eclipse) but on double clicking a vacationInfo attribute
nothing happens, not even if I right click and select "Edit Value". The only way to edit the
attribute value is to right click the attribute, select "Edit Value With" and there selecting
"Hex Editor".
> While I was messing with these settings I noticed that the "Edit Value With" submenu
contains a changing entry (top one, besides the alternative editors and the "Preferences..."
one) which as I found out is the entry corresponding to the previously selected attribute.
So if selecting a password, afterwards selecting a string attribute  and then looking into
the "Edit Value With" submenu, it will contain a "Password Editor" entry which will do nothing.
And sometimes it does really weird things.
> Eg:
> Selecting a Boolean and afterwards a Password: the "Boolean Editor" entry is displayed
but it opens the "Password Editor".
> Selecting a Password and afterwards a Boolean: the "Password Editor" entry is displayed
but it opens the "In-Place text Editor".
