Hi all,

I sent my bitcoins to a new address in bitcoin-qt on my linux machine, and now this transaction shows as a Label in the UI "(n/a)" instead of the address as the other transactions do. It's the only tx of type "payment to yourself" that I did. Also rightclick -> "copy address" yields an empty string. Otherwise it looks ok, the balance is here minus the fee. When I do "gettransaction txid" in the console I see a send and a receive entry to the address I sent to and that should be shown in the UI, imho.

Anybody knows why the address is not shown here and if this is ok?

Why not merge the partial fix to the master?

And by the way, why does GitHub call it also commited on 3/19/2018, besides the original date of 10/10/2017?

Commits were last pushed on 3/19/2018 while the commit date is 10/10/2017. This happens because people will amend their commits and force push, but amending does not modify the commit date.

When I do "gettransaction txid" in the console I see a send and a receive entry to the address I sent to and that should be shown in the UI, imho.
I can only say I'm okay with it: it's easy to distinguish between internal and external transactions, and that's basically all I need to know.

It's normal.

Normal but not informative. jonasschnelli's fix shows at least the address, though showing the label would be even better.

luke-jr's suggestion is also not a bad idea, to just show it as both sent + received txes. I suppose that includes the label.
