rebarmenu outdated checkmarks?
Posted by: siria
Date: December 13, 2009 05:12PM

Nothing new, if a menu is opened by a toolbar button via rebarmenu, the checkmarks are outdated (state from the last "normal" viewing), or non-existent if the browser was restarted.
Example rebarmenu(&Privacy)

Just curious, does anyone know if that bug will be fixed in KM 1.5.4 ??

Can you post your macro toolbar button to test it?
If you call to context menu in toolbars buttons with right click the checkmarks work fine (are updated).
It's possible you need rebuild menu to refresh rebarmenu calls in simple click to toolbars buttons.
You can look Proxy macro as example of rebuild menu use.

Rebuild menu? Oh man...!
Would you believe I've come across that command several times in the last days, when struggling with syntax, and it never dawned on me that it could anything have to do with checkmarks?! I only thought it might remove menu entries and such *slappingforehead*
Am going to try this soon, but it sure sounds like the solution!

*sniff*
Nope, doesn't work :-( On second thought, it makes sense, since the checkmarks don't even work after starting the browser, so why should they if rebuilding anything again?

Whenever a button is left-clicked the rebarmenu-command doesn't show ANY checkmarks at first, for any menu. It's a general thing, not related to a specific macro. Only when calling a menu from some other place, e.g. by a right-click on a button or by starting out from the text menu line, then somehow an "image" of the correct checkmarks seems to be stored somewhere, and that's what rebarmenu will show the next time.

For testing just put rebarmenu(&Privacy)|&Privacy on any button.
At startup of the browser there aren't any checkmarks at left-click, although everything should be fresh loaded, and although all other ways of calling the menu works perfectly.

Could perhaps anyone with a 154beta test it, if it's fixed...?

I tested it, and see your opened bug 1166 about it.
Yes this is a bug, the rebarmenu checked items isn't refreshed his status until you open the same menu with right click context menu or from menu bar. But the checked items work.

Not just check marks, but the tab list too. Gotta be the same bug. The tab list only gets updated after you've right-clicked it.

Oh well, pity, but thanks...
So I've put now only a non-working dummy command on left-click, menu of course on right-click, and wrote as tooltip "Open Menu (Long-click)" tongue sticking out smiley A workaround that takes nearly a second longer, but better than confusing people with wrong checkmarks, and who would read a tooltip if left-click does already what they expect? But if a quick left-click doesn't work, it's more likely that people press a bit harder anyway ;-)

How may the chances be that this will be fixed in 1.5.4, anyone an idea...?
Guess it's not very high on the priority list, if it's there at all :-/

I have been following this thread and I am a bit confused. Can someone point me to documentation for rebarmenu please.

Rebarmenu is an old kplugin to use the menu bar as a toolbar.
This functionality to create popup menus with this kplugin is undocumented (or the documentation is lost). If you search in Forums you can found some references to use it in macros (since version 0.9 and later I think).

Some old documentation references to his preference:
http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/manual/kmeleon-prefs.html
http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/NewPreferences

And a reference to the plugin and his use in my K-Meleon Quick Guide.

The syntax to use it is the usual for any kplugin:

- In macro files:
plugin(rebarmenu, "menu_name");

- In other cfg files:
rebarmenu(menu_name)

Must go take a closer look at those links... smiling smiley

So far all I do with it is quite simple: to open a menu with a toolbar-button on left click, I just write it on the left side where usually only a "command" is permitted, and write it in the form as desga posted:
rebarmenu(menu_name)
Same syntax works for buttons in a macro, instead of a command.
Works really fine - as long as you have a menu without checkmarks... cool smiley

EDIT: Okay, just looked at it... In the quick command list it should definitely be added "available in toolbars" and (partly?) in macros smiling smiley

Macro created button:
pluginmsg(toolbars, "AddButton", "<ToolbarName>, <ButtonName>,rebarmenu(MenuName), <MenuName>, <TooltipText>, <ButtonWidth>, <ButtonHeight>, toolbar.bmp[0]");

Because of that checkmarks-bug I omitted the rebarmenu again and replaced it with macros(dummy) cool smiley, so nothing happens at a short click, but the right-click menu opens if clicked just a little but longer with left (hardly a second).

Thanks for the info. I can see that I have a lot to study.
