Build 2000-07-25-09M17: NT4 Haven't checked Mac or Linux yet. Overview: In the Message Pane's Envelope area, right click onto the Attachment icon and nothing happens. With a left click it shows: - the name of the attachment (or attachments on seperate lines) - Save All... Expected Results: a. I would expect a right click to show the context menu b. Once the context menu appears then it should appear as follows: - Save All - Attachments... (I can't access the spec right now to describe the desired behavior but will this be possible?)

I have in the spec that we agreed that the context menu for the attachment button would contain only one item, "Save All Attachments...". This still what we want?
I'm not sure why my copy of the spec is different than what is on gooey. "Save All Attachments" is fine with me.

I'm confused about what I need to do for this bug. Currently the context menu says: Attachmen1 name Attachment2 [details] [diff] name --------- Save All Is the bug that we just need to swith the order in which thee things are in the menu?
Scott, what you currently have sounds great. What nbaca was talking about was the difference between a right click and a left click. Right click: <Attachment Name> <Attachment Name> --------------- Save All Attachments Right click (context menu) "Save All Attachments" But it is fine with me if the Right and Left menus are identical. Especially if that is what you already have. PS, why is the name of this bug say "Attachment icon should match spec"? Is ther a different bug for the icon. I notice we are still using the old icon.
cool thanks for the explanation Jennifer. 1) I have another bug for adding the new attachment icon you gave me (not sure why this bug has the same summary) 2) So for this bug all I need to do is make sure the button acts like a context menu (right mouse click) instead of responding to a left mouse click?
Changing summary to reference the "context menu". I'm not sure why the original summary was titled '"Attachment icon should match spec'.
Summary: 3pane context menu: Attachment icon should match spec → 3pane context menu: Attachment icon context menu behavior
I had a typo above. Sorry. Scott, either of two options below is fine with me. Which ever is easier or already done. 1. Same menu, right and left click. Attachmen1 name Attachment2 [details] [diff] name --------- Save All Or 2. Only "Save All Attachments" in the Right click (context menu) and the menu above (#1) for a Left click (clicking on the button) OK, does make sense now? Sorry for the confusion. :-)
I say that we should just do the same for both right and left click.

Adding my 2 cents. I think that a context menu should be available for all attachement. The context should be Open and Save. The Save All Attachment should also be available as previously mentionned. Once a week I receive some documents by e-mail from my company. My company sends all the docs in english and french to a mailing list. Let's say I receive 3 docs (6 files total), if I can only save all attachement I'll have to delete 3 files everytime I get this mail from my company. Pretty annoying. Also, once saved, the context shouldn't allow to save, only to open. The context should be reset with a message change.
Ok, so it just me or is this bug fixed?
Build 2001-01-2304: NT4 Build 2001-01-2204: Mac 9.04 Build 2001-01-1908: Linux 6.2 - Left-click context menus appear correctly: Attachmen1 name Attachment2 [details] [diff] name --------- Save All - Right-click context menus do not appear at all and should.
An update since I'm trying to test Attachments. The latest spec now says the context menu in the Attachment area should have Open, Save As..., Print..., [separator] Save All..., Properties. This spec was last updated on 4-6-2001.
Does this refer to the individual attachments shown when the message header bar is expanded, or the small attachment icon shown when said bar is collapsed? I have the normal contextual menu available under the former circumstance, but no contextual menu under the latter. A click on the small attachment icon under the latter circumstance results in the header bar expanding.
I also see header bar (message envelop) expanding after right clicking on the small attachment icon. Then right clicking on the attachment name brings context menus: Open, Save As, Save All. Current summary still reflects issues for attachment icon behavior - we just have an additional issue.
This bug was written based on the old attachment design, which was a single button. This feature has since been changed to the attachment listbox. Recommend we close this bug and folks file new bugs on any issues they have with the new design as appropriate. Spec for current design is here: http://www.mozilla.org/mailnews/specs/threepane/Attachments1.html Includes notes for rfe features as well.

Verified with new design - now clicking on Attachment icon opens the Attachment area. Right mouse click retrieves context menu.
