Issue #246 open

P4D3::Operations should act on only visible children

created an issue

If I have a repo view that is filtered to show, say, only adds, and I then select the top-level folder and choose "Revert", it sends the top-level folder to Hg as the target. This was not what I expected. This reverts everything, including files that were hidden by my filter. It would be nice if, instead, it would send the list of visible files--and also very useful.

The UI is a little bit of a challenge, because it's entirely feasible people other than me will have the complete opposite expectation.

Also, there may be some other commands that could benefit from this treatment, though I can't think what they would be at this moment in time.

    Delete would also maybe benefit from this... maybe... The UI is a bit tricky though (as you say). I can see this doing it one way or doing it the other... Hmm... Thanks for the suggestion though! I will think about it and mark this as low priority for now.

    Cheers, Jas
