Saving files


#1

I vaguely recall this malady coming up for discussion once before, but I
don’t recall having read any resolution. It’s a pain again today, so
I bring it up again. So far as I can tell, it happens to me only in Toad. Now
10.6, but earlier versions, too.

When I choose to save a file, a “Save As” Windoze Explorer”
window appears. I can double-click on various folders to go deeper and deeper.
But sometimes I run into a seemingly empty folder. I can traverse no deeper.
Sometimes backing up and trying again gets me past the hurdle. Just now
it’s not working. L It also happens now and then to one of my Toad using
colleagues.

Been there; seen that?

No resolution yet. I’ve seen it, on occasion, but I don’t think any
developers have seen it happen. When it happens to me, I just have to close the
browse dialog and open again to make the issue go away.

I’ve seen it once or twice but nothing reproducible and not in a long time. What
happens if you click in the space for the empty folder and hit F5 or right-click
-> refresh?

I’ve run into that myself. I chalk it up as some kind of Windows issue -
pretty easy to do that :wink:

Simply backing up in the folder structure and re-selecting the folder works for
me. Not always on the first attempt, but mostly on the first attempt.

I only ever noticed that on the existing version of Toad in our environment:

Windows – XP, SP3.

Toad – 10.6

In my case, it currently occurs on both network and local drives.

Question: when you come across this issue, is it a network share you’re
trying to save to, or is it a local folder? Either?

Can’t say about local; I hardly ever save anything there. Roger says it
happens with both for him.

I try to remember to try that next time it happens.

Thanks,

We use a custom open dialog that is built around the standard Windows common
dialog. This issue has been around for some time and we haven’t gotten anywhere
on it. I’ve reported it to the component developers who write those dialogs and
they are unable to reproduce it and I am unable to give them good data to go on.
I am one of those who have never seen it. I’ve used both XP (all SPs although I
think that SP2 was current when we started with that control) and Windows 7.
