FillAttachmentListPopup() looks as it accepts every popup ID to fill the needed content but only works when the ID is attachmentMenuList.

I need this function in bug 650170 to fill my popup appmenu_attachmentMenuList.

Patch v1

This patch updates the oncommand stuff in the attachment menupopup to use the traditional XUL command pattern.

Also adds overlay nodes so that the attachment menu in the appmenu from bug 650170 will work.

How's my driving, squib? Did I miss any corner cases here, and am I OK to attach the AttachmentMenuController to top.controllers?

Mike, thanks for the patch. It works on both menus but not together. This means when a message with attachments is selected and I open the main attachment menu, the attachments are shown. Now I go to the AppMenu's attachment menu, no attachment but only the four lower items are shown. I change now to a other message and open the AppMenu's attachment menu and the new attachment is shown. On main attachment menu there is still the old message's attachment shown.

It is very unlikely someone uses both menus for the same message but if he change his usage he can be surprised by this.

Clearing review based on comment 2, but I don't see anything obviously wrong with the code aside from that.

Ok, found the problem there - there was a global preventing re-entry into the function that populates the menupopup with the files.

That global looked like a kludge to deal with the behaviour of how the onpopupshowing event works (it bubbles up, and gets fired on parents as well). I removed the global, and just stop the onpopupshowing event from propagating when it's fired from the sub menupopup (the one that lists the options for individual files).

I haven't run with this yet, but we may want to look at fixing bug 514785 in this bug as well. We'll face similar issues with enabling/disabling the appmenu item as in that bug.

The context menu in the attachment list (attachmentListContext) doesn't properly update its menuitem states when you open it. I think the rest is ok, though.

So I looked into that, and I'm concerned that it might be more trouble than it's worth to fix this one bug (since Richard wants this for 17). The problem, is that the attachment menu stuff is loaded in and functions in msgHdrViewOverlay.xul/.js which, of course, is not loaded if message previewing is off.

We might want to move that stuff outside of msgHdrViewOverlay.xul/.js somewhere down the line, but at this point, I think it's out of scope.

Thanks for the review and for finding that bug! New patch coming soon...

Hey Jim, just a heads up - this patch is required to land before bug 650170 can land, and we want 650170 for TB 17 (1 week).

If you don't have cycles for this patch, let me know, and I'll redirect it.
