Problems with attachment mime icons in read window #653
YAM 2.9p1 + MorphOS 3.9 and Ambient (but this problem affected older YAM versions too, also with MorphOS 1.4.5 and Amiga Workbench)
Keep in mind that I don't feel responsible in case the bug I'm reporting is already known: I had posted this topic in the forum but nobody cared to reply, so I now feel legitimated to report the bug here. Thanks.
YAM uses the function GetIconTags() of icon.library V44+ to obtain a suitable icon. If that fails YAM eventually falls back to using GetDefDiskObject() to obtain the default "project" icon. If Ambient's icon.library fails to return a colorful icon like it displays itself then this is no bug of YAM, but a bug of Ambient.
You can check yourself which of YAM's attempts to obtain an icon finally succeeds by running the debug version of YAM and creating a "GUI" log.
Details about YAM's debug version can be found in the FAQ.
Regarding the "automatic" dragging, I never experienced something like this myself. All this stuff is handled by MUI internally. YAM does absolutely nothing itself in this respect. All it does is acting on the final drop action, which of course might cause a DisplayBeep() in case something did not work out successfully. Your description very much sounds like a faulty mouse.
Thanks for replying.
