Description

Hello everybody,

A little bug existing since some version of QGIS (since 2.2 at least) :

When a custom action created from the configuration menu of a layer is defined, and use an attribut, the action works weel when using the geographic interface (choosing "action tool" and clicking on the geographical entity on the map). But when opening attributes table, clicking right on a line, and choose my custom action, it is like every attribute used is empty.

Sample :

My action call :
load(QUrl('http://blablabla/test.edit.php?id=[% "gid" %]'));

In the map case :
"http://blablabla/test.edit.php?id=145" is loaded in my browser

In the attributes table case :
"http://blablabla/test.edit.php?id=" is loaded in my browser (and doesn't work, obviously)

I cannot confirm after having tested on QGIS master on both linux and windows. Please give it a try and report back.

OK, I manage to point the exact problem :
The field "gid" I want to use is setted as "Hidden" in the fields properties tab. It's only in that case that the problem occured.

So I know how to avoid the problem (by changing the field type), but according to me, the feature has to work the same on both cases (map and attributes table).

Thanks for your work !
