[FIXED] ToDoList Language Preservation

As per here, the language setting isn't preserved currently with ToDoList 6.5.x

I've identified the issue, and will have a fixed build sent for uploading this evening.

Not quite ready

I've hit a snag on this, and need some input from NSIS gurus. Here's my launcher.ini.

As you can see, I'm doing a FileWrite for language switching which includes a value that has environment variables in it, but I'm unable to have environment variables in the corresponding LanguageFile section when using ConfigRead.

In order to have the language processed correctly, I need to have the path cut off, hence the configRead vs. using an INI read.

So, what I'm looking for is a way to custom-code a configRead or entry that allows for environment variables.

Any thoughts? I'm willing to replace the relevant section of Languages.nsh with a custom hook, just need to know how.

[EDIT] I think adding a ${ParseLocations} section would suffice, from looking at other spots that use environment variables, but I'm unsure (at least at this hour) where to locate it.

$ instead of %


Entry=LanguageFile=$PAL:AppDir%\ToDoList\Resources\Translations\

->
Entry=LanguageFile=%PAL:AppDir%\ToDoList\Resources\Translations\

I'm not sure if this is the problem. If not, we could use TrimLeft… oh wait.

COPY PASTE

I had tried both ways, and was changing it back. Missed that one. I think I've figured out what's needed. If it works, I'll submit a patch for PAL.

Fixed/sent

I've fixed the issue, and sent an update to John for posting.

Technical details:

I disabled the Language Init Hook, and reimplemented it in Custom.nsh as a Pre Hook, including ParseLocations for the ConfigRead and INI Entry sections. This isn't ideal, and as such, I've submitted a patch for PAL to have this available by default.

Please start a new post, starting the title with [BUG], that states exactly what the problem is, your full install path, os version, app version, the language you're having a problem with, as well as how you're launching - ie, from the platform or stand-alone.
