User Story

As a user, when I'm in a room and there is no active connection, I see:

* any text chat history from the immediate past (i.e. that's leftover from the previous uses of the room in this page load, but not from previous page loads)
* no text chat entry box, so I don't get frustrated by something I can't actually use.


(1 file, 1 obsolete file)

When the room is left by either user, the text chat entry should be disabled. The display of the elements should remain the same.

It seems like the described user story sets the user up for frustration by disabling an input and giving no obvious way to re-enable it. 

What about, instead, leave the message list displayed (in case the user wants to see what was typed or click a link in it), but hide the text input?

Sounds good.

Just a note that this field will always remain present when chat history is persistent.

Gonna steal this, as I think we should take it for the next loop-client release, and the fix is fairly easy.

This adds signalling to the sdk driver to tell the store when the streams are disconnected, and hence the data channel goes down. As the store now knows, the views get updated correctly.

I've also added a follow-on fix for bug 1168829 where I realised the conversation toolbar had a border when it shouldn't have done.

This patch doesn't disable/ hide the textarea when the link clicker decides to leave the room.

Doh, I'd forgotton to test for that, and I had previously thought about needing to include it in disconnectSession (otherwise we drop the callbacks before they could happen).

Also I just noticed an error in the console that actionData.urls was undefined in the textChatStore, so I've just fixed that whilst I'm in the vague area.
