Bug #3475

Morpho data table search results do not display

Added by Rick Reeves over 13 years ago. Updated over 12 years ago.

morpho - query

Estimated time:


Intermittent software 'lockup' (approx 50 % of attempts results in the condition):

Occurs on Ubuntu 7.10 platform, JRE, Morpho 1.6.1 -

To re-create:

1) Start Morpho (from command line) and log in
2) Search Network and Local, All, search string: 'NCEAS 2017'
3) From search results, select (double click) DocumentID chadden.48.2
for viewing.
4) Here is what happens: I get the Warning message:
'Unable to display this data. However, an empty table with the column....' header... data is referenced by the URL ecogrid://knb/chadden.43.1' appears (note that this is different DocID than the one I selected).
When I click 'OK', warning message disappears, Data Package appears,
and THEN the screen freezes (Butterfly stops flapping)

Again, this only happens about 50 % of the time, and only on Ubuntu (so far).

Thanks for the report.

The URL is different because it is the identifier of the data file, not of the metadata document. So it should be different.

Are you sure the screen is frozen? The butterfly should stop flapping once it has determined that you don't have access to the data file (thus it can't be displayed and is finished). You should still be able to look at the metadata. Does the 'more' link work on the window, or the split pane sliders?

A very similar problem occurs when trying to view the data package contents from a search for 'NCEAS 2049'. One package with 5 data tables is returned. When this search result line is selected (double-click), an empty Data Package window (all gray) is displayed,but the program locks up and has to be aborted.
