Worked on pp2lino

New field street_prefix in lino.modlib.contacts.models.Addressable is needed because snail mailings need to be sorted by street, and street names in french may have a prefix that must be printed but is not relevant for the sort order.

Continued on lino.apps.dsbe.fixtures.pp2lino.

Released https://www.lino-framework.org/releases/2011/0609.html.


  • A stupid bug caused the Layout Editor for .dtl to not work.

  • Some optimization in lino.utils.log.configure():

    • Used to always set the level for the terminal to INFO. Now only if there is a logfile.

    • Changed default value of maxBytes from 100K to 1MB, changed default value of backupCount from 5 to 10. Both parameters may now be overridden in LOGGING.

Making TinyMCE readonly

There ws a bug in Ext.ux.TinyMCE : the disable() function didn’t set the disabled property to true. I need this when opening TinMCE in a separate window (where it will get its readonly config option from panel.editor.disabled).

Getting the inline TinyMCE readonly is more tricky. Ext.ux.TinyMCE’s disable() function sets the class to mceNonEditable, so I added the following style to my lino.css:

body.mceNonEditable {
  color: blue !important;

But that wasn’t enough, I also had to set tinymceSettings.content_css to '/media/lino/extjs/lino.css' because otherwise TinyMCE looks only at its own (theme.dependant) CSS.

Now the inline TinyMCE (of a closed Note) has blue text, but it is still not readonly. The method explained here and there doesn’t seem to work for me.

Aha, there’s a plugin called “noneditable”. That helps. It disables all buttons and makes the text noneditable.

One detail left: it updates only when the user clicks into the text area. Since the text color is already blu before, that’s only cosmetic.

Checkin 20110609b, but the release is for tomorrow.
