Description Chris Petersen 2006-09-25 11:13:13 PDT
When a select element doesn't contain any children element, TOT still renders it as a normal select element instead of being dimmed.

I originally found this issue at http://www.oceanfootage.com/stockfootage/Barracuda_Fish/ but I now have a simple test case.

1. With TOT webkit r-16541, open the attached test case "select_with_no_children.html"
2. The select element that is rendered contains no children but is still is selectable. 
3. With stock Safari under 10.4.7, the same select element is rendered as dimmed. TOT should do the same thing but doesn't

Select element with no children should be rendered as dimmed but isn't

This is a edge case issue but is a regression

This might be subjective since one could argue that stock Safari is doing the wrong thing and r-16541 is correct behavior. But I will let Adele and Hyatt decide this :).

r=me (there's an unrelated test in this patch).

Oops. This causes an infinite loop.  Need to rework this.

Seems like it would be better to set disabled state for real when you have no items rather than doing this check any time someone calls disabled().
Comment 9 Adele Peterson 2006-12-18 13:47:11 PST
Our old behavior was that the popup would also be disabled if it had children, but all of the children were disabled.  After thinking about it some more, I think that matching that part of the old behavior is unnecessary.  There's no harm in opening a menu with all items disabled.  Some people may want that behavior just to see what options exist, even if they're disabled.

So I think we should just disable in the 0 children case.

Since our new behavior matches other browsers better, we decided it was correct.
