#3638 closed enhancement (fixed)

[preferences/fileTypes] extensions can be the same one(easy)

Reported by: chico Owned by: axeld
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Preferences/FileTypes Version: R1/pre-alpha1

Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: All


  1. open preferences/fileTypes.
  2. choose application -> Be application.
  3. click add button in File Recognition.
  4. input "exe" and click add button in popup window.
  5. do step 4 again.
  6. then choose another application : Be boot
  7. do step 3 and 4.

so there are two ".exe" in Be application extensions, and one in Be boot. Suggestion: May we have more than two kinds of extensions are the same? Should the same extension show more than twice in one kind of file extension?

An extension can be associated to more than one application at the same time because, according to the BeBook: "A given extension can be associated with more than one MIME type."

Thanks for the patch. The patch itself was in the right direction, but there were some problems with it. Mainly it used the wrong list index, so it would have only removed one duplicate successfully. Also, there were some other problems with the existing code, which we fixed in hrev30040.
