    Default Dates In email

    Just had a go through the hosted demo, and it seemed very nice, if a bit slow. That may be due to the slight lag from Ajax though.

    I sent myself an email with the message as follows.
    Hi Paul, OK then the 3rd October at 14.30 then ?
    Hoping to test out the date hover function.

    When the email arrived in my inbox the date above was not highlighted

    However I replied to the email, and then went to the sent box to view the sent mail, I noticed that my original message had the date highlighted and when hovered over it popped up the calendar function. Not very handy when I want to add the appointment to my calendar.

    Did your original message contain HTML? At ths time we only scan/link text/plain e-mail.

    Not intentionally but then thunderbird I may have set up to send all email as html.

    But that might explain the problem

    I have a question about the function "date hover", it works well with date in english format but when the dates are in french format for example the day pointed is not correct.

    There is a way patch this problem or can I remove the zimlet wich does this work ?

    Thanks,
    Cyrille

    In 3.1 it can not be removed. It will be possible to remove it in a the next release. There also is an open bug to i18n the date formats for non-US date formats.

    is there some news about that (dates hover with French dates) since 3.1.1 release ??

    today when I hover this : 03/10/2006, I should get 3rd October and I get 10th March...

    Is it in your plans to adapt this hover process (works great and it can be so useful !) for other dates formats (like in French : 3 octobre 2006 15h50 for instance)

    Hi,

    Can some zimbra personnel help regarding this? I hope hovering over date will show the correct format.

    Thanks.

    The date Zimlet is not fully been ported to all locales. I'm pretty sure there is a bug in bugzilla for this.

    Is there any downside to us editing the date zimlet? Are there things we don't know about that are using this zimlet such that editing it will break Zimbra?

    My personal thoughts are to implement a multi-select in the context menu to permit the user to decide which date they'd like to use. That way I (in the UK) can receive an email from the USA containing a US-formatted date and use it if I would like to.

    On that note, is there a way to produce cascading context menus? In the above example, I'd like to have the current options available as sub-menus under the date selection. So, right-click on, say, 12/03/05 and get:

    12-Mar-2005 -> [options]
    03-Dec-2005 -> [options]

    Thinking this further, this would be a very neat way to allow multiple zimlets to process the same information. At the moment, the "first" zimlet with a matching regexp "claims" the text. It would be really cool if ALL zimlets with a matching regexp could stake a claim on a bit of text, the right-click context menu providing the user with choices. This behaviour would then match, for instance, the context menus in Windows explorer when multiple applications have a "claim" on the same file type.

    In the above case, we could have a "DateUK" zimlet and a "DateUS" zimlet and the "multi-zimlet" functionality would give the user a choice. The administrator could then install as many "DateXX" zimlets as needed for their locale and expected user requirements.

    Any thoughts?

    In general the date zimlet needs to be enhanced to be i18n/locale aware. The rest of the app is already like this we just need to extend that behavior into the date zimlet.

    In general we already have a priority in Zimlet's which will allow you to set which Zimlet can match first. It would be a added enhancement to allow multiple zimlet to work on the same match.
