I can confirm the issue.
I'm working on it.
Thanks for the report.
Fixed with revision 1468962.
Thanks Pierre-Arnaud, I've just tested the latest version and works fine. However, I think that the chance of the user pressing the "OK" button without noticing that he is changing the password is pretty high. I believe that it would be less error-prone if the "OK" text was "Set password".
Thanks for testing and confirming it's fixed.
The "OK" button is disabled:
So unless the user voluntarily types a new password, there's no way a user can close the dialog using the "OK" button, only the "Cancel" or 'close window' button are enabled.
I'm working with version 2.0.0.v20130517 and the behaviour was not exactly what I expected, hence my previous comments. Let me clarify:
Am I working with an old version?
Actually, in "New Password" mode, if the field is empty the button should be disabled.
Let me verify this on a Windows VM.
BTW, we released a new version yesterday: Apache Directory Studio 2.0.0-M8.
I can confirm that on Windows, the fix for the empty field doesn't work.
"Write once, run anywhere" they say…
That was in fact a bug in the code…
The test on the empty string was not properly working in the case where "Plaintext" was used.
I only tested with others encryption mechanisms.
Finally fixed with this last commit: 1500017.
Thanks very much Perre-Arnaud. I'll check it in next release. How can I get notified of new releases?
You subscribe to our 'users' or 'dev' mailing lists if you like:
Or you can also subscribe to the Apache 'announce' list where all Apache projects announce their new release:
Hope this helps.
