Attached patch cal-tab-focused-startup-0.patch (obsolete) — Splinter Review

If you close and re-open the tab everything is fine. If you switch to another tab and then back, things are fine except for the tab's icon and title in the tab bar.

Looking closer, this is caused by a load order issue where TodayPane.updateDisplay gets called before TodayPane.onLoad, and so TodayPane.paneViews is still null.

The attached patch improves things but does not fully solve them. With the patch only the left hand sidebar (with the minimonth etc.) is blank rather than the whole tab's UI being off.

I've looked briefly at an approach of calling TodayPane.onLoad if needed when TodayPane.updateDisplay is called, but onLoad is async and updateDisplay is not. So you end up having a domino effect of switching functions from sync to async.

I also tried calling ltnOnLoad near the top of OnLoadMessenger, but that did not fix the problem.

This fixes the problem by loading the calendar component right before any tabs are restored.

Try run looks good. The linting error is not from this patch (as you can see here).
