Without installed plugins, the "null" tab is not present. Can you figure out which plugin causes the "null" tab (by sequentially disabling your plugins)? Thank you!

comment:3 Changed 10 days ago by skyper

I have no problems with these plugins among other.

OK, the guilty plugin is:
+ ColumbusCSV (35640)
It is for a GPS tracker, I used some time ago.

This also solved #19825.

comment:5 Changed 10 days ago by GerdP

Plugin FixAdresses also doesn't set a title (doesn't overwrite the constructor of DefaultTabPreferenceSetting)'

comment:6 Changed 9 days ago by GerdP

I guess we should fix both plugins and there should also be better code to handle this null value in PreferenceDialog?
The problem also exists with r17084, but there it doesn't show the "null" string in the tab.

log error and ignore preference is a TabPreferenceSetting which doesn't provide an icon

comment:8 Changed 7 days ago by GerdP

Don't know if this is the right approach. The two plugins both use this constructor which sets a null icon:

     * Constructs a new {@code DefaultTabPreferenceSetting}.
    protected DefaultTabPreferenceSetting() {
        this(null, null, null);

This doesn't work well since years, at least since r14153. So, either nobody needs the settings of these plugins or maybe even the plugins are not used?

The Wiki for ColumbusCSV has a section "Settings", but they only show how to change them in "Advanced Preferences". So it looks like this Plugin has preferences, but not in a separate tab.

So it looks like this Plugin has preferences, but not in a separate tab.

Well, it creates a dialog but without an icon and this dialog is discarded when you click on the "null" tab:
I tried to change the code so that an icon is set (and that works) but the tab still vanishes when I click on it.
So, one option is to remove the code that doesn't work (easy), another would be to make it work.
