Lighthouse Pro Update

This post is more than 2 years old.

Just a quick note to let folks know I released a minor update to Lighthouse Pro. I don't normally bother even blogging about minor updates, but this one includes a feature that I've had on my person bug tracker for a few weeks now and I've really enjoyed it. When you enter a project and filter out the issues (ie, show issues that are open and belong to me), the tracker will store these in a cookie. When you return to the list, the filters automatically reapply. This is darn nice when going back and forth between the list view and the issue view. The cookie is only for one project, so it won't remember multiple project views, but it is better than nothing.

For Spry users, you may want to take a look at project_view.cfm. I use an observer on the dataset that runs after it has been loaded. This code checks the cookies and updates the dropdowns accordingly.

That's a nice improvement; I only recently started to notice that having to apply the filter everytime was starting to bother me as you don't really notice until you have quite a few issues entered.

Thanks for that Ray. I was about to go in and hack a session filter in there or something to do the same thing. I'd just as soon use something you would actually support.

I'll be updating ASAP.

Thanks brother!
