#12471 closed patch (fixed)

Allow account change from disconnected account in conversation

Reported by: SgtPepper Owned by:
Milestone: 2.7.4 Component: pidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.7.3 Keywords:


This patch fixes bug #7203.

If a user has a buddy via two different accounts and one (which is the active account in a conversation) becomes unavailable, the "Send To" menu is disabled - leaving the user unable to switch to the account that's still available.

This patch simply leaves the current account in the "Send To" menu (though grayed out), even if it is disconnected. Now the user can select the good account, and the "Send To" menu will subsequently become disabled as before.

For clarity, I've added a picture illustrating the behavior with this patch. Without the patch, this situation would have the "Send To" menu disabled (making it impossible to change to the other option - even though it's usable).

I intend to apply this patch. I need a real name to credit you with. An email address would be helpful as well.

Allow using the Send To menu in the case that the active conversation's account disconnects. Previously, the Send To menu was unusable in this case, making it impossible to simply switch accounts and continue the conversation. Fixes #12471.
