An other thing with a high side effect I discovered 2 years back, and declared 1 year ago to 4D:
Before, the result was sorted, which is logical. But suddenly, it appears not to be.
Everything was then unsorted, but even with 4D modules too !!!
I discovered this with the resources manager in 4D: folders and files were no more sorted. Very frustrating, and this is one of the reasons, seeing nothing changes (even in v18), I wrote 4DPop Resources Buddy.
Obviously, all my folders and files managers were unsorted too.
But recently, I was asking myself about the strange illogical order of 4DPop components in the palette: Oh yes, for sure, same trouble. So yesterday, I had to add everywhere a sort in 4DPop itself, which gives now a predictable order for componentsSad
This is a very bad side effect, as it touches plenty of things, even 4D itself.
I began to change everywhere it is used, so my question to 4D:
Is it intentional ? I mean you decided to gain a little time by giving unsorted result ?
Is it a bug ? And if yes, will you repair it one day or not ?
Then we will have plenty of unnecessary sorts in code: yours, and ours…
