#503 closed enhancement (fixed)

Run "Test Archive" in a way that allows copy and paste of the output.

Reported by: John Small Owned by: Gregg Young
Priority: minor Milestone: Release_3.22
Component: fm/2 base Version: 3.21
Keywords: Cc:


Running "Test Archive" in a VIO window does not allow one to copy and paste the output of the test. (Marking is apparently allowed but it never copies (to the clipboard).

Very strange if I start unzip using the command unzip -t %a I see the above behavior. However if I run it as 4os2.exe unzip -t %a copy works fine.

I don't think this is FM/2's fault. If you just set up an icon to run any VIO program with output to the screen and have it set not to close upon exit, that "completed" window will not let you copy text, either.

When FM/2 runs a "test" it show in a similar "completed" window.

The purpose of the ticket was to express the wish that it could be done in a different way so that the output is not in a "completed" window. This would allow copy and paste of any error messages that may be displayed by the test.

I marked the ticket as an enhancement because I do not consider this to be a defect.

There are 2 workarounds for this the first is to start the vio programs in a command shell (ie CMD.EXE /k UNZIP.EXE -t filename). Any command shell will work and this can be done in the user commands or from the fm2 command line. The "keep" checkbox can be used in place of the /k parameter.

The second way is to highlight what you want to copy and drag it to the desktop. (I think this requires dragtext to work)You can then open the file to read the text. This doesn't put the text into the clipboard so if you need it there you will have to copy it from the file. You need to push the "change" button on the become page to be able to open the text via dbl click or you can open it with the open menu option.
