#7124 closed defect (worksforme)

Label disappears if not explicitly re-specified

Reported by: harbulot Owned by: obs
Priority: normal Component: BlackMagicTicketTweaksPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11



The label of a (custom) field does not show up at all if it's tweaked.
I'm using blackmagic (r7886) and Trac 0.11.6.

The reason for this is that the label is loaded using this:

self.enchants[e]["label"]=self.config.get('blackmagic','%s.label' % e, None)

Unfortunately, None doesn't work as a default value with config.get() (at least in Trac 0.11 and the current trunk).

Just before returning from get() in the Section class, there's this:

    if not value:
        value = u''

Perhaps a patch like this would be better?

             self.enchants[e]["ondenial"]=self.config.get('blackmagic','%s.ondenial' % e, "disable")

Then, people who want to hide the label could use a space instead of nothing.

Best wishes,

Tested on trac 0.11.7 works fine, upgrade your trac installation.
