Description lars 2002-08-31 21:22:10 UTC
application-dependant !   not just current document dependant

a nice feature might also be to always use ";" (on any language platform) and 
only showing a transparent window for 3 seconds where one would have to click 
in order to call the real dialogue; in the background, the import occurs with 
the ";".

or just use this technique for the last used import option, so import using the 
last used import option (which seperator etc) and then show the transparent 
window like said.

see issue 7185 for this type of technique

Hi Lars,

as CSV is defined as Comma Separated Values the import dialog has to
show the Comma seperator selected. So I have to close it as INVALID.

closed invalid
Comment 3 lars 2002-11-28 14:51:47 UTC
yes, agreed, if you stick to the CSV (perhaps see 2nd text line of 
original description), but if you see it in the sense of a data 
importer...  (which many people seem to see it like that)
