Re: Minor zenmap feature

While you are at it, please do check this out also.A 2-line patch to
avoid testing and alerting about non xml files on "Open
Directory".Now, one need not have the nmap xmls in a separate
directory to open without error.

Is there an option already to recurse the directory tree searching for
xml files?It could be useful when I have a huge list of directories,
each containing a few scans ,perhaps.

I attached the revised patch after moving the functionality to the
FileChooser classes.Still every time after a proper save or open,
save_settings(filename) has to be called to save the folder for
future.The only way I could think of to automate it further was to
have a wrapper function over the filechooser.run().But I figured it
would not be so appropriate .I extended only the classes used for open
and save.The configuration file is now saved in ~/.zenmap which is the
user configuration directory.Please check it out once.

I noticed that Open Directory functionality when it tries to load a
directory full of scans pops up alerts when it finds unsuitable
files.It alerts about non xml files also.I thought it would be cooler,
if we put a small check over there to try out only .xml files and
alert if those xmls aren't nmap ones.What do you guys think?

that.

About extending classes in FileChoosers.py, do you mean extending the
dialog box classes to have an attribute like default directory which
could probably be set through the constructor ?And the dialog box
loads up using its default directory attribute.Then we can have this
functionality as a part of the Dialogue box rather than implementing
it each time in MainWindow.py.

Yes, that's what I mean. The default directory wouldn't have to be given
in the constructor. It could be anything the first time when the saved
directory is unset, and after that it would load the directory
automatically (from a configuration file or whatever). In other words,
I'm proposing that this logic should be inside the FileChooser class and
happen automatically, not something that happens outside of the
FileChooser and tells it what directory to open.
