Description

18 years ago
Build 2000-04-28-09M10: NT4, Linux 6.0, Mac 9.0

Overview: With any folder selected, the View menu should enable or disable menu 
items.

Questions: 
1. What criteria is used to determine if a View menu item is enabled or 
disabled? Couldn't most of them be enabled even if a message is not being 
displayed in the message pane? For instance, 4.7 disables the "Wrap Long Lines" 
item when only a folder is selected. Why not have the ability to control this 
before viewing a message? "View Attachments Inline" always appears disabled so 
why would this be different from "Wrap Long Lines"?

I can see Reload, Stop, Page Source and Page Info being disabled if no message 
is displaying in the Message Pane.

2. Show Images: In 4.7 the Advanced Preference panel has an item to 
"Automatically Load Images". If this is selected then the View|Show Images 
option is disabled. If it is deselected then Show Images is enabled so that it 
may override the preference. Where is this preference item in Seamonkey? Should 
this menu item work the same way?

View Menu, Folder selected:

Enabled:
Toolbars --->
[ ] SideBar 
[ ] Message
Sort by --->
Messages --->
Headers ---> 
[ ] View  Attachments Inline
[ ] Wrap Long Lines
Enlarge Text Size ---Ctrl +/=
Reduce Text Size ---Ctrl -
Stop --- Cmd-. (mac) - Esc (others)
Character Set -->

Disabled:
Reload
Page Source --- Ctrl-U
Page Info --- Ctrl-I

"Stop" - disabled once the messages for the selected folder have been retrieved.

"Show Images" would depending on the pref you mentioned. This pref still shows 
in the "Advanced" pane of Preferences for Netscape 6. I agree this isn't the 
best place for this pref and it ends up being a bit confusing in Mail. If folks 
want to spend time on this one, great, we can come up with a better solution, 
but I have a feeling with the current schedule, we will have to leave it as is 
for now.

per mail triage:  remove nsbeta3 nomination and move to future milestone.  For 
the short term, we will combine items here into three bugs (in 3pane) to address 
for nsbetat3:  1. delete, change text, move menuitems;  2. enable/disable and 
text changes on context (dynamic);  3.  accelerator keys to work.

When this bug gets revisited after the first release, we'll need to see what 
items remaining that need to be addressed.

Jen: Some changes have been implemented so I'm not sure if the spec needs to be 
updated.

1. View|Toolbars, is now View|Show/Hide, ('w' for mnemonic)
2. View|Messages, all the items in this list are present but do not match the 
order in the spec. Should the order of these items be changed or should the spec 
change? Either way is ok with me.


These changes should occur in the product:
1. Remove
a. Folder Character Coding (bug# 83318)

Got it.

I prefer the order/group of items as shown in the spec.

Doesn't look like this is getting fixed before the freeze tomorrow night.
Pushing out a milestone.  Please correct if I'm mistaken.

Are we supposed to incorporate suggestions from mpt/gerv on menus now? I seem to
recall a big overhaul by them a few weeks ago, didn't want to work on menus
still that was sorted.

I change resolution to Invalid for originally logged bugs for 3pane Main Menus.
Some design changes happened since that time and now expectation is different.
Current status of Main Menus is addressed in the summary bug 75622, which tracks
a few leftovers for Main Menu mnemonic issues in 3-pane window according to
updated Spec. So original ones can be closed.
