Plot column checkboxes become checked again on refresh #1245

Plot column checkboxes become checked again on refresh #1245

Details for the issue

If I check a plot column, it gets a color. If I uncheck it, and then refresh data for the plot, the mark gets checked back. This is very annoying - I am forced to uncheck all the checkboxes, I ever checked, every time I refresh the data. Please make it so checkboxes don't get checked back on refresh.

Useful extra information

Weekly build does even worse - after refresh columns disappear at all.

I'm opening this issue because:

  • DB4S is crashing
  • DB4S has a bug
  • DB4S needs a feature
  • DB4S has another problem

I'm using DB4S on:

  • Windows: ( version: Windows Server 2012 R2 )
  • Linux: ( distro: ___ )
  • Mac OS: ( version: ___ )
  • Other: ___

I'm using DB4S version:

  • 3.10.1
  • 3.10.0
  • 3.9.1
  • Other: ___

I have also:

What you see in the nightly is probably caused by the same inner problem as #1222. This is how I reproduce it:

  1. Draw a plot
  2. Filter by one of the columns
  3. Press refresh
  4. The plot may disappear. The probability seems to be inverse to the number of rows.

This seems a race condition in the data loading.

When restoring the plot state we always checked set the use-on-y-axis
checkbox when a colour was defined for a field. This is correct most of
the times because a field doesn't have a colour as long as it's not used
in the plot. However, when you uncheck a field it keeps its colour which
starts causing issues as soon these settings are reloaded.

The solution is to not only store the colour but also the check state
independently. This changes the project files format though, so the code
needs to support loading old and new file formats.

See issue #1245.

@Orimay Can you download tomorrow's nightly build and check if it's working as expected in there? I think I could fix this bug but you never know 😉

@mgrojo That sounds like a different issue to me. I'll have a look into that now 😄

If I refresh data while the plot is open, DB4S crumples on the floor in a heap, sobbing.

This was on the nightly from 7 Dec. The nightl;y from Nov 6 doesn't.
Whoever put the dates in the 'About' box - thank you! 😍

Sorry for the delay, @Orimay! But can you check out tomorrow's nightly build and see if it's working for you? 😄

@mgrojo I believe the problem you saw was caused by the old and buggy multithreading code we had. Ironically the new multithreading code had the same issue but in a more reliable manner 😉 Anyway, I believe it is finally fixed now. Can you double check? I'm not 100% about the fix so it's worth a try before closing this.

All the reported problems were solved, but we forgot to report back and close this issue. I'll close it now.
