Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6

Downloaded 9/15 nightly. Created a new remote calendar (WebDAV) and deleted the
default calendar. Created some events, all good. Tried creating a new task.
Enabled "Task in View", but task didn't appear. Tried switching between all
views. Tried creating a new local calendar and adding the task there, but it
still doesn't appear. Tasks *do* appear in the left-side task pane. Tasks did
appear the last time I tried the calendar (0.2 release).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable "Task In View"
2. Create a new task
3. Switch to multi-week view

Actual Results:  
The tasks did not appear. 

Expected Results:  
It should have displayed the tasks in the multi-week view.

As I mentioned, I started out by creating a remote calendar and deleting the
local one. I don't know if this would have anything to do with it.

I tried deleting the sunbird program directory and also Application
Data/Mozilla/Sunbird and starting from scratch. Even with this clean install the
tasks still do not appear in the view.

Oh yes, I tried setting all combinations of "Date" and "Due Date", no change.

Known issue.  Won't be fixed for 0.3a1.  New views will incorporate this though.

After the landing of the new views they are shown in Month and Multiweek view, not  the other views though.

Is this because the new views can't show all-day events yet or aren't the tasks supposed to be seen in day- and week-view?

calendar-multiday-view.xml discards all tasks before trying to display them, because it only searches for a startDate.  Being able to display allday events would certainly help, but that in itself won't be enough.

Some of the support is there, but more work needs to be done:

http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/calendar/base/content/calendar-multiday-view.xml#2269

Note that this should probably be done in bug 157274 which is already confirmed.  I suggest that this bug be closed, since it only refers to the regression, which is now fixed.

Resolving as fixed, since it was fixed by the new views.
