Smart Open: Weirdness
« on: November 07, 2021, 10:16:31 pm »
1 Open smart open.
2 Enable dateModified and size.
3 Sort by name.
4. Navigate to C:\Program Files\SlickEdit Pro 26.0.0\macros
BUG:  Some dates are blank and the Sizes are completely crazy.

Very weird, this happens in C:\Program Files\SlickEdit Pro 25.0.2\macros too.
I haven't found another folder though with this weirdness.

I am having trouble reproducing this.  Does that happen with a default configuration?

Code: [Select]
"C:\Program Files\SlickEdit Pro 26.0.0\win\vs.exe" +new -sc C:\Temp\defcon1\

Well, I'm glad I have a screen shot so I know I wasn't imagining this one :-)

It still reproed this morning, but does not repro with a fresh instance.

I restarted slickedit and it doesn't repro -- so something must have got corrupted in memory.

Ok, wait --- maybe I wasn't going crazy with the out of order dates report.

In trying to repro this one, I definitely saw the bad date ordering problem.
In trying to get repro steps for that, I was able to repro this problem.

I did this by opening a file in macros (c:\Program Files\SlickEdit Pro 26.0.0\macros\convert_ftp_ini.e), and then clicking through  different folders while playing with sorting by name or Date. Also I typed in the path to the folder I was seeing the bad date ordering problem.

Also, I was changing directories by a combination of clicking on them in Open, typing them in Open, and switching between buffers.

FWIW, I attached a script to create a clone of that folder with the correct order of files by name, size, and the exact dates.
