User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:18.0) Gecko/18.0 Firefox/18.0 Build ID: 20121119042013 Steps to reproduce: Ran the screenshot command via the Developer Toolbar Actual results: Synopsis information is not uptodate with current method of adding parameters. Expected results: New --flag style should have been shown instead of "screenshot false true 0" etc
Michael, could you please attach the file you used screenshot with to this bug report? We need to reproduce the bug in order to cofirm it, and I couldn't reproduce it with Firefox 18 or 20 until now.
Michael is referring to typing the --arguments, which aren't immediately obvious in gcli. For example, writing 'screenshot file' would show an [options] placeholder, which signals that extra arguments can be added, but there's no way of discovering that typing -- is required to display them. This bug affects all commands that use this variable-number-of-arguments pattern. CCing Joe.
Thanks for the details, Victor. Reproducible on the latest Nightly too (11/26).
Changing the summary of the bug to reflect a general use case
Agreed. There is an extenuating circumstance here in that Kevin's video highlights the old way. Also it could be argued that using '-' (you only need one) is common-place in command lines. However that's not to say that we shouldn't improve things, and it's something I'll bear in mind. Thanks for the report.
Still need anything from me? or are we good to go?
