      • Hi ScanBird,

        > File toolbar has disappeared.
        I don't know if this is about the toolbar or the Sidebar...
        A) Toolbar
        1- Menu View » File toolbar should be checked (check-box)
        2- May be the icons disappeared : Menu View » Customize toolbars » File toolbar From the appearing window, it should be possible to set / reset the icons onto the toolbar (drag'n drop works fine there)

        B) Sidebar
        1- Menu View » Sidebar should be checked (check-box)
        2- Size of the sidebar  : Menu Options » General options » General » Size of Sidebar (250 is ok)

        Thanks for you report,
        Pierre.

          Hi Pierre

          Thank you for the prompt answer, however :

          >B) Sidebar
          Sidebar is Ok and MenuItems from the second separator behave normally

          >A) Toolbar
          >1- Menu View » File toolbar should be checked (check-box)
          Checked or Unchecked there is no difference

          >2- May be the icons disappeared : Menu View » Customize toolbars » File toolbar From the appearing window, it should be possible to set / reset the icons onto the toolbar (drag'n drop works fine there)
          -I do have tried this approach before posting.  I resetted icons.  I removed them manually and added them back the same way.  One at a time trying to get 'View/File toolbar' active between each.

          Sorry, I was unable to reproduce the problem on another Dev-PHP installed on my other computer ... I can live with it but its a little annoying because it's the main development computer.

          Regards

            ...

            Well. This looks like a bug in configuration file :
            %APPDATA%\DevPHP\devphp.ini
            In fact, it is a regular .ini file

            Could you make a backup of this file, then erase the following sections

            [TBToolbar2Options]
            [TBToolbar2Buttons]

            [TBToolbar3Options]
            [TBToolbar3Buttons]

            [TBToolbar4Options]
            [TBToolbar4Buttons]

            [DebugToolbarOptions]
            [DebugToolbarButtons]

            Best regards,
            Pierre.

              There is no DevPHP.ini file in either of my installations.

                Ok, sorry for that, I did not search the right place the first time.  There is a DevPHP.ini file as you already knew.

                However I manage to fix the problem the following way :
                -Uninstall 2.3.0
                -Reboot
                -A little bit of CCleaner
                -Reboot
                -Install 2.3.1

                Toolbar is back.  I keep you inform if the strange behavior appears again and I will try to notice how/when it happens.

                Thanks for the help.

                • So you found a big mistake and its workaround.

                  I searched into the subversion server and release notes :
                  Version 2.3.0.306 (31-Dec-2007) may break backward compatibility in terms of toolbars :-[
                  I should have warned about that. Sorry.

                  Previous versions were storing the caption of toolbar's icons in configuration file %APPDATA%\DevPHP\devphp.ini
                  From version 2.3.0.306, we're storing the Name of the icons, not their Caption - so it is language independant, because the caption is the result of a translation.

                  To ensure compatibility, we are looking in the configuration file, for either the name, or the translated caption of the icons. But if the translation is different, then the program is unable to display any icon.

                  Thanks for your reports.
                  Pierre.
