Subject [jira] Commented: (PIVOT-655) FileBrowserSheet save dialog appends the saveas field content to the selected folders/file
Date Thu, 21 Oct 2010 17:08:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-655?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12923527#action_12923527
] 

Greg Brown commented on PIVOT-655:
----------------------------------

Interesting use case. Obviously, "c:\" is meaningless on a Mac, but when I enter a "/" in
the "save as" field on OS X, I get a prompt asking me which folder I want to go to. Never
knew that feature existed.

We can't follow this approach exactly since absolute path specifiers are not cross-platform
(nor do I think it is necessarily the best UI), but we could probably do something to handle
it. Maybe we could create a File from the contents of the text input and:

a) if relative, append to the parent directory
b) if absolute, set the parent directory to the file's parent and the selected file to the
last path component of the file

Thoughts?

> If you copy/paste or type an absolute path to the save as text input field, the result
'selectedFile' is the concatenation of the selected path and the path in the text input.
> So you may end up with a File object pointing to something like : "C:\toto\D:\myotherdirectory\file"
which is obviously incorrect.
> we can (should) check the result from the dialog but handling this case should, imho,
be done by the FileBrowserSheet component.
> What do you think ?
