GUI-Tools: EVFSGUI: Fix crash after bad return value from *RxGetMount?() in GetChildren?

File size: 15.1 KB
1ToDo for 2.x:
2- Major code refactoring (partly done)
3- Debug on/off option is badly implemented (rework required)
4- Create Icon. stem in order to ease maintenance of icons
5- Fix endless loop if neither EVFS nor Netdrive is installed
6  under all conditions
7- Enable WPS integration code (partly done)
8- Enable and complete printer support code
9- Support server based logon scripts (requires REXX rpc library,
10  partly done) (works in a separate utility right now)
11- Passive connections/double connection detection does not seem to work
12  properly (it does, it is Turbofolder that is creating the 100% CPU load)
14Version 2.1-beta
15- Added: On-the-fly browsing on remote servers
16- Added: Files can be "opened" during on-the-fly browsing (a mountpoint
17         is created first) - does not work properly yet!
18- Added: Set icons of browsed files according to extender types (only most
19         often used types (EXE, OOO, PDF, generic multimedia icons - no WPS
20         mechanism for that)
21- Added: Refresh display every 60 seconds in order to reflect changes
22         done on the command line while EVFSGUI is open
23- Added: "Detach all" menuitem in context menu
24- Added: "Refresh" menuitem in context menu
25- Fixed: Do not flash during refresh
26- Fixed: Workaround for uninitialized advance.!alwaysmp
27- Fixed: Do not crash on bad return value from *RxGetMount() in GetChildren
29Version 2.0.5 2010-04-23
30- Fixed: Passive connections were not removed when the same connection was
31         loaded using a profile
32- Fixed: Missing NLV message if wrong file was dropped onto the left pane
34Version 2.0.4 2010-04-09
35- Fixed: Connection details doubled since MEMLEN etc removal.
36- Changed: Some parts of the code were refactored
38Version 2.0.3 2010-02-23
39- Added: Open mountpoint as WPS object moved to a separate thread in order
40         not to block the EVFSGUI main window while waiting for a folder
41         on a slow connection to open.
42- Added: Double-click also opens a mountpoint as WPS folder         
43- Added: Debug ON also makes hidden columns in connections details visible
44- Fixed: "Abort" button on progress window was not NLV enabled
45- Fixed: The NLV subroutine now properly falls back to the builtin
46         (bracketed) message files in case NO (not even an english
47         message file) can be found.
48- Fixed: Do not crash in Autostart dialog when no NLV file was found.         
49- Fixed: Open mountpoint as WPS object fully workable
50- Fixed: Open mountpint now has a consistent behaviour with other actions
51- Changed: Open context menu item enabled for testing (experimental)
52- Changed: Show wait pointer while opening WPS folder
53- Changed: CltInit: Now scans wellknown locations for Samba binaries
54           (faster at least in theory)
55- Changed: In the 1.5.0 GA version of the plugin the MEMLEN, LOGFILE and
56           LOGLEVEL tokens are removed in order to address the problem with
57           EVFSRxGetMount() return strings - several changes in EVFSGUI were
58           required to address this change in the plugin.
59NOTE: This changes makes older profile files, both .ndc and .evp incompatible.
60      EVFSGUI can read old profiles, but only saves new profiles. The Netdrive
61      GUI does not have such a feature. Older profiles may easily be migrated
62      by editing with a text editor and removing the MEMLEN, LOGLEVEL and
63      LOGFILE tokens from the resource strings manually.
65Version 2.0.2 2010-01-25
66- Changed: Remove Win95/98/IBM Peer length limits from smbtree.vrs.
67- Added: EVFSRxGetMount() returns a maximum string length of 255 for
68         resdata, if workgroup+server+share+username+password > 52 the
69         resulting resdata string will be truncated. Several workarounds
70         in ParseResourceData() added in order not completely fall over.
72Version 2.0.1 2010-01-12
73- Added: Alex T.: Use 'Combined' font on DBCS systems
74- Fixed: Alex T.: Default fonts are set correctly

78- Fixed: Herwig B.: Another speed up in resize logic (use marginx2 instead of
79                    42 times margin * 2)
81Version 2.0.0 (Refresh) 2009-12-29

175- Changed: Use PM_Default_Colors for title sections (as suggested by Alex Taylor)
176- Changed: German translation of "Retry"
177- Changed: Profile behaviour: In 1.3 a new profile replaced older connections

204Version 1.3.7 - changes not relevant for 2.0
206Version 1.3.6
207!Fixed: When connecting to a complete server, the workgroup got lost during the
208        connecting process.
209Version 1.3.5
210!Fixed: Error in profile file parsing logic could lead to double entries
211        for LOGFILE and LOGLEVEL (possibly having side effects on EASUPPORT)
212Version 1.3.4
213!Fixed: Readonly connection option did not work (was not implemented)
214Version 1.3.3
215*Changed: Provide better message box for profile saving (to explain rather
216          odd behavior
217Version 1.3.2
218!Fixed: No more double drive letters in the drive letters list after mounting
219*Changed: "Workgroup/ Domain:" back to "Workgroup:"
220Version 1.3.1
221+Added: Explanation for errors in case mount operation fails
222*Changed: "Workgroup:" to "Workgroup/ Domain:"
223Version 1.3
224+Added: Support for the (new) ndpsmb logging feature
225+Added: Support for the (old) ndpsmb logging feature (deactivated)
226+Added: Save "titlebar" color across sessions
227*Changed: Merge Alex Taylor's and Herwig B.'s latest changes
228*Changed: Also display status data in hintarea when mouse cursor is over
229          the "current resources" pane
230!Fixed: Tab order in "new resource" pane
231!Fixed: Help did not work for advanced window in NLV versions
233Version 1.2.1 (2009-04, Herwig B.)
234+Added: Try to restart EVFSCTL.EXE once in case it is not running.
235+Added: Implemented support for error messages depending on return codes
236        in case of failed operations as provided from ndpsmb.dll version
237        1.5alpha2 or better.
238*Changed: Move status data of current connection into container caption
239          (Makes more sense there).
240*Changed: Show version notice in status area (at the bottom now)
241!Fixed: In case the connect operation fails on a newly created mount point,
242        the mountpoint is removed again, instead of leaving it in a zombie
243        status. That makes sense as EVFSGUI does not support the creation
244        and maintenance of empty mountpoints (the underlying EVFS (including
245        the REXX interface) supports this, but the GUI does not).
247Version 1.2.1 (2009-05, Alex Taylor)
248!Fixed: Main window wasn't set visible if INI file was missing.
249!Fixed: Corrected English, formatting h in helpfile.

253*Updated: Finally all the help files are updated to reflect all changes
254          (en, de and fr)
255!Workaround: It appears that for unknown reasons the SysDriveMap() function
256        hangs if it is used with the "FREE" and "REMOTE" flags, after it is
257        called for several times. I noticed that after I received Yuri's
258        latest Samba plugin. The problem disappears if EVFS is not installed.
259        This should be tested (and fixed) by Vitali in EVFS (probably).
261+Added: In debug mode the output in the console window has time stamps now
262+Added: Display name and version of the used IFS on "empty" mountpoints
263+Added: Button on the autoload window (the -nogui GUI) to abort reconnection
264+Added: Server entry field is now a drop down combo box holding all servers
265        to which connections were made with)
266+Added: Alternatively support NetDrive for SMB shares instead of EVFS (using
267        undocumented -ndfs switch)
268*Updated: All message files
269!Fixed: Bug in my autoload code
270!Fixed: Bug in my -ndfs code (spotted by Guillaume)
272+Added: Autostart EVFS connections feature via Startup folder object
273+Added: -nogui switch (only show a small message window)
274+Added: -autoclose switch (close eVFSGUI after 3 seconds)
275+Added: Load profile specified on the commandline
276+Added: Edit via context menu for mountpoints with exactly one resource
277+Added: Context menu equivalents to the Detach and Unmount pushbuttons
278+Added: The content of the EF_NETWORK field (aka workgroup) is saved to the
279        eVFSGUI.INI as this changes only on rare occasions (saved me a lot of
280        typing during testing)
281+Added: Do not attach drive if has already been attached (from TODO list A.T.)
282!Fixed: Profiles supported plain passwords whereas EVFS provided encrypted
283        passwords in profile files
284!Fixed: eVFSGUI initializes itself properly now
285!Fixed: eVFSGUI would hang after displaying the message "no control program
286        found"
287!Fixed: Cleanup signal stuff ("return" after a signal is a bad thing to do!)
288!Fixed: INI file was not closed after leaving eVFSGUI
289!Fixed: When several mount points exist and the first one is removed the click
290        event routine was executed after the corresponded record was already
291        removed -> eVFSGUI crashed. As a fix the record is validated before an
292        attempt to access its data is done. If it does not exist anymore the
293        event routine is terminated without further action.
