Using v4.5.0 / v4.5.2
Firefox 4.0.1

I got an PHP error in the Log-Module when using the renderMode tree in TCA:

Core: Error handler (BE): PHP Warning: Missing argument 2 for extDirect_DataProvider_BackendUserSettings::addToList() in /Volumes/Jobs/adgrafik/000000-TYPO3 Develop/typo3_4.5.2.ip.dev/t3lib/extjs/dataprovider/class.extdirect_dataprovider_beusersettings.php line 107

This happens when the form is open.

Found the line where the problem is:
File class.t3lib_tceforms_tree.php (3 matches) Line 176

expandnode: function(node) {
    top.TYPO3.BackendUserSettings.ExtDirect.addToList("tcaTrees." + this.ucId, node.attributes.uid);


'type' => 'select',
'size' => 3,
'autoSizeMax' => 15,
'minitems' => 0,
'maxitems' => 99,
'foreign_table' => 'tx_ext_domain_model_category',
'foreign_table_where' => 'AND (tx_ext_domain_model_category.sys_language_uid = 0 OR tx_ext_domain_model_category.l18n_parent = 0) ORDER BY tx_ext_domain_model_category.sorting',
'MM' => 'tx_ext_category_layer_mm',
'MM_opposite_field' => 'layers',
'renderMode' => 'tree',
'treeConfig' => array(
    'parentField' => 'parent_category',
    'appearance' => array(
        'expandAll' => true,
        'showHeader' => true,

Tracing the variable node.attributes with firebug:

Object { iconCls="t3-icon t3-icon-tcareco..._model_category-default", text="c-test", mehr...}
Object { iconCls="t3-icon t3-icon-tcareco..._model_category-default", text="Category", mehr...}
Object { text="TYPO3 StandardTree", id="root", mehr...}

The first line is the category, the second the root. The last one have no uid set.

Hope this will help.

I'm not too deep into the whole tree stuff, so maybe the answers to my questions are rather obvious... How is the data for the tree provided? Could it be a problem with your data provider or the node? As I see it, you can only store the expansion state for nodes with a uid - and that is obviously missing here.

The data will be stored as aspected. I had never a problem with this.
But it produced an error in the "TYPO3-Log" every time a form is opend.

I made some screenshots to show you.
In the file "first run" you'll see node.attributes.uid = "4". This comes for every category.
The file "secon run" shows you the root of the tree. There is the property "uid" is missing.

Same as http://forge.typo3.org/issues/31978 (which is newer, but has better analysis)?
