Description Jonathan Marten 2009-02-19 18:46:07 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #182776 +++

Version:           1.4.0 (using 4.2.00 (KDE 4.2.0), Kubuntu packages)
Compiler:          cc
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.28-6-generic

This may apply to all header columns in Kontact I don't know, I didn't want to try in case I lost them too.

It started with trying to drag widen the columns in the Akregator sources pane and the column order somehow got changed.  I could not restore the default column order no which way, by dragging them back across or otherwise.

I decided to use the hide or delete columns feature and then restore them all again.  So I hid all of the columns and the columns header bar then totally disappeared and I cannot find any way to restore it or the columns again.


Original closed as a duplicate in error.  Apologies for that - the two attached screenshots and comments #3,#4 described the resizing problem but
were not at all relevant to the original report.

i have the same problem here. Is there any way to get the header back.. ????? even by modifying some config file by hand ?

Another related problem:
I moved the date column to the very left. Then while selecting other feeds from the feed list the column disappeared (could be that more column reordering actions and a restart of the application is necessary to trigger that problem).

> Is there any way to get the header back.. ??
Yes, just delete the "ArticleListFeedHeaders=" and similar lines from akregatorrc and restart (the application :)).

By the way, these lines look suspicious, e.g.
I doubt that this is a valid value.
Possibly KDE4 has a problem with it configuration system.

While their is a workaround for getting headers back, it should not be possible to hide _all_ columns in the first place.
Should be a one liner to fix that.

@ comment#2: No, there isn't a problem - the values seen in the configuration file are as expected.  This is the Base64 encoding of the header state, from QHeaderView::saveState().

I don't think there is an one-liner to prevent people from resizing columns to zero. But it would be possible for the menu, yes.
