#31 closed enhancement (fixed)

Increase number of characters supported in States drop down box

Reported by: bdragon Owned by: Steven Levine
Priority: trivial Milestone: Release_3.7
Component: fm/2 base Version: 3.07
Keywords: Cc: strrom@…

Description (last modified by Steven Levine)

The states name is relatively short. This really should not be limited.

To implement this requires reworking the entry field and the INI storage. This probably can be done without losing existing stored states.

While implementing this, the state name entry field handling probably should be enhanced. It would be useful if the last loaded state was not overwritten. This would allow states to be deleted without having to type in the name.

Some care will be needed to support reloading the current state.

The applicable code can be found by searching for lastsetups and hwndsetuplist.

This change is a bit messy because the design of the current INI file keys used to save the states will not allow for size changes. With some thought we should be able to come up with a new disign that does not limit the name length. We can snoop or old style keys at startup and offer to convert them or silently convert them.
