Item8865: rdiff DIFFRENDERSTYLE does not work as expected

Priority: Normal
Current State: Closed
Released In: 1.0.10
Target Release: patch
Applies To: Engine
Component: rdiff

Last Change By: KennethLavrsen
According to the rdiff documentation

Parameter Description Default
render the rendering style {sequential, sidebyside, raw, debug} DIFFRENDERSTYLE, sequential

I would expect that setting
   * Set DIFFRENDERSTYLE = sidebyside

would affect the initial radio button setting in the "Compare revisions" section under "More topic actions".

It does not affect that.

It should.

Possible fix

Change oopsmorecompare.pattern.tmpl so one of the comparison choice radio buttons is checked only in response to DIFFRENDERSTYLE.

For each
<input type="radio" 
check the value of DIFFRENDERSTYLE

<input type="radio" name="render" id="sequential" value="sequential" %IF{ "$ DIFFRENDERSTYLE='sequential'" then="checked" else="" }% />

If DIFFRENDERSTYLE isn't set, no radio buttons will be lit. The user can choose (or not choose). Sequential is still the default even if a choice isn't made.

But if DIFFRENDERSTYLE is set, the correct radio button would be lit as opposed to a hard-coded choice.

This was not difficult to fix. I also noticed that the setting has not been documented well - see new task Item8905.
