Bug report #1546

Action from attribute table does'n substitute %column

I define an action like:

firefox http://google.com/search?q=%name

The right mouse click on a table row in the attribute table opens firefox but %name in not substituted through the desired value. The same action triggered from the Identify Results GUI works fine.

New table manager does not have this function, so the ticket seems not to apply anymore; please reopen it if appropriate

  • Status changed from Closed to Reopened
  • Target version set to Version 2.14
  • Crashes QGIS or corrupts data set to No
  • Pull Request or Patch supplied set to No

This occurs in latest version 2.14.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Create an action of type "Open". In action text insert: [% "MYFIELD" %] (where MYFIELD a field containing the system path to a file you want to open)
2) Test the action with normal action tool (file gets opened - correct).
3) Use the "Open attribute table" of the identify tool, right click on the field, and select the action: it does nothing.
