#7563 new defect

Should be able to show empty columns initially

Reported by: CuriousCurmudgeon Owned by: Olemis Lang
Priority: normal Component: WhiteboardPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.12


Currently the whiteboard only shows columns that the query returns results for. This prevents you from dragging tickets to empty columns.

Possible Solutions

  • Don't show empty columns by default, but allow them to be toggled on.
  • Show all columns no matter what.
  • Allow the toggling of individual columns.

Show all columns is better than the current state, and should be easy enough. (Empty columns could be slightly smaller to preserve screen real estate)

Replying to anonymous:

and me too. Need to drag tickets into states that are not shown.

I also need the empty columns. Without the empty columns you can't really work with the whiteboard.

Due to the plugin's generality using the groupby for enumeration of the columns, this is less simple than it seems: Only the groups actually found by the query will be shown in the query result and the plugin cannot in general know "which groups are missing".

A naĩve solution is to treat groupby=status as a special case in the plugin. Or alternatively, treat any enumeration-type grouping field as special cases (this may require Trac 1.2??)

A more general solution could be to add configuration data to the plugin, allowing a number of such special cases and for each special case enumerate a minimal set of columns to be shown.
