I'd like to NetFIX [1] this bug. Is it possible? [1]
Comment 5 Jiri Kovalsky 2009-09-16 09:15:38 UTC
Petr, are you willing to review and integrate possible Daniel Sheppard's patch? Thanks for your answer!
Comment 6 Petr Hejl 2009-09-16 10:15:06 UTC
I don't have any objections, however there are couple of important things to know.

I believe this issue is caused by disabling the GsfCodeTemplateFilter for groovy - this is actually workaround for issue
172363 which should be fixed by CSL maintainer.

So this issue might look as simple fix, but perhaps it is not. Be extremely careful for regressions and EDT blocking.

Comment 8 dynamite 2009-09-16 21:50:13 UTC
I tried re-enabling Groovy in GsfCodeTemplateFilter by commenting out the line that added the Groovy mime types to the
list of disabled file-types (leaving the list empty).  The issue remained unfixed.

My fix was founded by comparing how selection hints are applied and removed in Java and Groovy.  In Java it is handled
by AbbrevDetection and removed in hideSurroundWithHint() by passing an empty list of ErrorDescriptions to
HintsController.setErrors().  The corresponding code for Groovy is SelectionHintsTask, but its run() method just returns
when it sees that the selection range is empty.  I now get it to call HintsController.setErrors() with an empty list
(like AbbrevDetection.hideSurroundWithHint()) before returning.

I have checked my fix against Groovy and JavaScript.  I'll use this build intensively tomorrow to give it a more
extensive test.
Comment 9 Petr Hejl 2009-09-17 10:20:48 UTC
Seems ok, but groovy is not the best test case as it does not have many hints.

Reassigning to CSL for evaluation. Adding other scripting languages engineers on cc.
Comment 10 Vitezslav Stejskal 2009-09-22 15:46:10 UTC
The fix looks ok to me as well. Thanks. Marek, could you please test and integrate it. Thanks
Comment 11 Jiri Kovalsky 2009-10-14 13:49:08 UTC
Marku, can you please review & integrate this patch? Thanks a lot!
Comment 12 Petr Hejl 2009-10-16 09:34:12 UTC
Does not seem to be controversial. Fixed in web-main c5ad6c7334db.
Comment 13 Jiri Kovalsky 2009-10-16 10:49:17 UTC
Thank you very much Petre!
