• bbs.edit_msg() - Empty message

    From Nightfox@VERT/DIGDIST to Digital Man on Wed Mar 23 16:38:02 2022
    Hi DM,

    Today I noticed there's a bbs.edit_msg() function that was added in Synchronet 3.18. I tried calling that with a header for an existing message in a sub-board. When my editor came up, it was empty. Should it be editing the existing message contents?

    I'm running today's Synchronet build (March 23, 2022) for Windows.

    Yes, that's how I use it in msglist.js:

    bbs.edit_msg(list[current]);

    And that list[] value is a returned object from MsgBase.get_msg_header().

    Me too. :-)

    I'm also passing it an object from MsgBase.get_msg_header(). Does it need to have expanded fields or anything?

    I got it to work. It seems the MsgBase object associated with the header needs to still be open for it to work (even though you aren't passing the MsgBase object to edit_msg()).
