fTools Merge Shapefiles command object type checking

Using the merge shapefiles command from fTools, if the 'Select by layers in the folder' option is checked, then despite the Shapefile type dropdown control being disabled, its value is still respected when the command is run, resulting in the process failing if the input files are of a different object type.

This behaviour is not seen in the separate Merge Shapefiles plugin which the fTools command is based on. Could this be used to update the fTools code?

#3 Updated by Andy Harfoot over 10 years ago

My mistake - the original error was obtained using QGIS 1.7.3 (standalone install) on Win 7 64 bit. I can't reproduce on 1.7.4 (OSGeo4W package install, Win7 64bit) as trying results in the following Python error, regardless of whether the 'Select by layers in the folder' option is checked or not. Once again, the independent MergeShapes plugin works without problem.

An error has occured while executing Python code:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\\OSGeo4W\\apps\\qgis\\python\\plugins\\fTools\\tools\\doMergeShapes.py", line 124, in accept
if self.inEncoding == None:
AttributeError: 'Dialog' object has no attribute 'inEncoding'

Python version:
2.7.2 (default, Jun 12 2011, 15:08:59) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)]

QGIS version:
