Reloading file using custom parser overrides default columns

Post by steffen.bach » Fri Aug 09, 2013 8:43 am

Hi.

Thanks for a great product.

I have run into a bug with a custom parser that provides additional columns. Reloading a file with a custom parser where user defined columns have been hidden causes the columns to reappear.

The setup is the following:
  • Register custom parser to handle Log4JXML format
  • Hide additional columns provided by custom parser
  • Change width of columns
  • Save these columns size & and state as default settings
  • Disable auto refresh
  • Add the additional columns in the Entry details settings ...
The steps to reproduce the issue are:
  • Open a Log4JXML formatted file
  • Reload the file or press F5 (doesn't matter if new entries have been added to the file)
    • Custom columns appear
Expected behavior:
The additional columns remains hidden (respect default settings), and the columns layout would be:
ID | Timestamp | Emitter | Level | Message


Actual behavior:
The additional columns appear even though they are disabled. Actual column layout is:
ID | Timestamp | Emitter | Level | Message | Col 1 | Col 2 | Col 3


Closing the file and reopening it respects the default column settings.
