#8876 closed bug (fixed)

Type-ahead filter oddity when creating a new folder

Description

This is hrev44512.

This may also be related to #5381 or the fix for it.

  • Open a folder with some zip files that have "zip" in their file name.
  • Type-ahead filter for "zip".
  • Create a new folder.

--> The first line of the filter result is overwritten by "New folder". BUT: if you wave another window in front of it to force a redrawing, it's all correctly moved one line down to make space for the "New folder".

This is only an issue if you "List folders first" in the Tracker preferences.

Should the "New folder" disappear, however, it not fitting the filter criterion of "zip"?
I'm not sure... logically, it shoul disappear, but from a user's point of view, I'd wonder where my folder's gone...

What I think it should do, is to let it visible at least while you are first editing its name. Then, when you commit the name, evaluate if it should be visible or not. I think that would be the most natural way to do it.

I think that most user-friendly way to modifying folder with Type-ahead filter is forbidding modifying it at all or forbidding creating anything that don't match filter.
