TCA select fields with renderMode tree do not save the collapsed state any more.

The reason for this seems to be, that the top.TYPO3.BackendUserSettings.ExtDirect functionality was removed / replaced?

Currently the expanded state seems to be stored with top.TYPO3.Storage.Persistent which does not seem to have any impact.

The problem is located in UserSettingsController::addToList which not handle the array correctly. The DB stores the string "Array" instead of a comma list.

  • Status changed from New to On Hold

currently a new tree logic is work in progress, we will not fix this issue with the current tree implementation.

The problem is not located in UserSettingsController::addToList as expected. If anyone find a simple fix, we can implement it, but at the moment we don't see a simple fix.

  • Status changed from On Hold to Closed

in version 8 saving of the tree state for categories was dropped.
The usability of this feature was questionable - settings ware saved independently for each record.
So you see the saved state backend user would need to visit the same record again.
Additionally if user clicked "expand all" all nodes ids were saved into session, making the session size grow over time.
