#1243 closed defect (fixed)

Upload file browse does not show hidden files on local filesystem

Reported by: mberteig Owned by: dkocher

Component: interface Version: 2.7.3
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Architecture:


Open Cyberduck.
Open Preferences -> Browser.
Check "Show Hidden Files"
Connect to an ftp server
Right click in ftp server browser window
Select "Upload"
In browser window of local file system, no hidden files are shown. For example .htaccess which is visible in the ftp server remote browser is not visible in the local file system. This is true even with the Finder defaults setting changed to allow hidden files to be visible in the Finder.

Note: I have seen that "wontfix" has been applied to previous tickets of this nature. I have investigated having hidden files show in the Finder and that is a simple command-line defaults setting change. Presumably, there is a way for this to be done with the upload file browser window as well.

Note: I am going to see if I can find out how to fix this from a code perspective... I will check back in a few hours on this.

Also, note that TextMate has a "Show Hidden Files" option in it's OpenFile browser window.

What is your proposed solution? The page at cocodev says this is private API.

I've also seen this in other applications...

Always showing hidden files in Finder is a pretty ugly situation, but who wants to do a defaults write & restart finder every time they want to upload .htaccesss files?
