Charles is bombing us with questions that help me to see what is missing in the docs. When working at the More about layouts page I realized how complicated it is when you want a table view that opens directly into the detail window instead of a list window. You need to say:
@classmethod def get_default_action(cls): return actions.ShowDetail(cls.detail_layout)
Actor.get_default_action method is now being called when all other
standard actions have been bound. As a result, an application developer
can now simplify the code for saying that a data view should not have
grid display mode at all:
@classmethod def get_default_action(cls): return cls.detail_action
This apparently minor change caused an avalanche of changes in the deepest inner parts of Lino. Hic sunt dracones. There is danger of having introduced bugs that slip through the test suite.
I removed the mysterious
because (1) I don’t understand its purpose (it’s obviously used to customize the
action_name for the detail_action but I can’t remember why we want this) and (2)
because I suspected it to be the reason why React doesn’t show the
system.About dialog. At the moment I do not yet remove the
default_list_action_name, this might come later.
I discovered that
lino_xl.lib.ledger.Situation table was
no longer used, so I removed it.
I formulated and then fixed #4075, which required me to
extend the API for
lino.core.plugin.Plugin.get_quicklinks(): it can
now return a dict.
I had the following warning when I pushed to react:
