Description Alan McGovern 2012-02-01 09:00:16 UTC
If a directory is right clicked and deleted from a project under version control, it does not vanish from the solution pane immediately.
Comment 1 Alan McGovern 2012-02-01 09:38:02 UTC
This was an issue only when using the 'Add existing directory' command which failed to create a ProjectFile for the directory itself which resulted in this inconsistent state. Fixed in git master.

Are you sure this fix is correct? There is no requirement for a directory to have a ProjectFile - if the files within it are in the project, then the directory is implicit. In general, ProjectFiles for directories are only created when a new directory is created, a directory is added but the files within it are not, or when the last file is removed from a directory.
Comment 3 Alan McGovern 2012-02-01 11:31:48 UTC
The code executed when a directory was deleted was checking for the existence of the corresponding ProjectFile and then removing it if it existed, so it appeared like the bug was simply that the 'else' was mismatched in this statement:


as the code added a ProjectFile for the new directory only if there was already a ProjectFile for the directory in the solution.

If the actual issue is simply that the treeview has not refreshed properly to clear out the stale empty directory then i can revert that fix and work on making the treeview refresh correctly when an implicit directory vanishes.

It looks like you fixed a problem, just not the problem you thought you were fixing :)

The if definitely looks like it was mismatched, I guess that code was intended to always add a ProjectFile for the directory even when the user chose not to actually import any files? Though TBH that would have made more sense to do later if the dialog returned Ok but had no selected files.
