Summary0017125: Developer Mode (in About dlg) does not work
DescriptionThe app.enabledDeveloperMode function doesn't function properly, which is used by the script in dlgAbout.js. The script seems to be correct, but after attempting to enable developer mode, the program still attempts to submit crash logs.
Additionally, when opening the About dlg again, the checkbox is once again unchecked. If possible, I think the app.enabledDeveloperMode function should return a boolean with its enabled/disabled state, so that dlgAbout.js can query it when the dialog loads.
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build2277

I've tried and work correctly for me.
Tried this code
        var x = x / y; // y is undefined
and i've got standard error dialog (not eureka with send command).
State of the checkbox in About dialog will fix.

Checkbox state in About dialog fixed

Ah, cool, putting app.enabledDeveloperMode(true) inside the js itself does work for me. I suppose that the issue was the developer mode not being persistent after a reload. Will the aforementioned fix of the checkbox state in About dialog do that? (remembering the state of developer mode after a reload)

Reopen for feedback:
1. Start MM5
2. About
3. Enable Developer mode
4. File -> Exit
5. Start MM5
6. About
7. Developer mode disabled (as pointed in 0017125:0060362 expected would be that it stays enabled)

That's the question whether to remember this kind of settings ... Rusty ?

Developers are likely to close + reopen MM over and over, so it would be tedious to enable developer mode every time, in my opinion.

Yes I agree with Peke/Drakinite. In most other apps a 'Developer Mode' setting is persistent.

Checkbox is persistent.
