#1868 closed bug (fixed)

Icon changing using the File Type Icon drop doesn't update in dialog box

Using the drag and drop trick of dragging an application's icon onto the icon square in the File Type box to change the icon DOES change the apps icon, but the icon shown in the File Type dialog box doesn't update until you close it and then reopen it. Screenshot shows a trashcan icon, which was the previous icon I had assigned to my BeOS Max volume. (No files were harmed in this test... I hope).

I can only reproduce this with volumes. Can you do this with other types as well? And if so, how exactly and using which files?

I was only able to get that to happen with volumes.

This seems to have changed on recent builds? Now if I try dropping a different icon for a file it updates the files icon right away, but the icon drop box instead of not updating the icon box is it just left empty. I'd expect to see the new icon there. I only have a single volume here so I wasn't able to check to see if non-boot volume icons are still acting as they were when this ticket was filed.

on hrev28314, can only reproduce running FileType on a non-executable. It works well on applications with the bigger "Application Type" dialog.

See #1640 -- possible dupe.

Should be fixed in hrev44503, thanks!
