Now i get this:  electrum -W Ä..#..#..#..#electrum.datÄ -o addresses
And no colors.

Ok, I'm still investigating this. But what do you mean by 'no colors'? No colors where?

* The 'receive' tab now has a 'new' button, that allows the user to create addresses beyond the wallet's gap limit. The user gets a warning, and addresses that are beyond the gap limit are displayed in red. The red color will remain until the gap has been filled. (in other words, to fill the gap you need to send coins to the last non-red address of your list).
* Frozen addresses are displayed with a blue background.
* Addresses have a 'priority' flag. Prioritized addresses will be used first when creating a transaction. Prioritized addresses are displayed with a green background.

hey, this info is now deprecated; sorry I should have mentioned that.
in 0.56 this button opens a dialog that allows the user to raise their gap limit. no more addresses displayed in red.
users can also decrease their gap limit, but only as much as is allowed by the current status of their wallet. (if the wallet has large gaps, the user must fill them before they can decrease the limit.)

yes:

Receive tab:
*green = prioritized
*blue = frozen
Contacts tab:
*gray = alias

This one should fix it once and for all... Let me know if not! (note: this is 0.57c, which I haven't released on the homepage yet!)
  

0.57c portable - Executable
   
  EDIT: sorry, I had to take it offline while i investigate another GUI bug

SHA1: aed8e2881bedadc6cb31a13f376a7c9038df91fe

The example command in the virtual console should look like this:

Quote
electrum -w "../../../../electrum.dat" -o addresses

OK, build 0.57c is ready, let me know if command line is OK now in portable mode!

Its working now but there is a strange bug:

This is what I get when I open the console (offline) and hit "enter":
12.06.2012  9:58:50,73> electrum -w "../../::/::/ELECTRUM:DAT" -O ADDRESSES
Usage: electrum [options] command
Commands: restore, help, unprioritize, freeze, signmessage, verifymessage, addre
sses, contacts, create, label, validateaddress, unfreeze, reseed, eval, import,
password, sendtx, prioritize, mktx, seed, deseed, balance, payto, history

electrum: error: no such option: -O


Finally this is what I get when I hit enter 3 times (3x close and reopen the console):
12.06.2012  9:58:14,32> electrum -w "../../../../electrum.dat" -o addresses
-- 1ADwVBLHRpnUjq4nSUbP6yDsinHiLQYUBE
-- 14s6FkuN1KXuJV2efBFr6xj7pHmmqqewfn
-- 1FaY7PuSv3bZGpSYA5MeBstvdGQ9jW9LSw
-- 1ARcWC1EKrjHHgR6N7cZ3yHxbdv744TQ8K
-- 1Fdkh7jMcBT7E7QjfPPME5C1c3rmAsg3Q3


Sometimes it even needs 4 or 5 "starts" until I get the correct (lower-case) characters.

@flatfly: did you finally fix the menu bug?
could you make public all the modifications that you made to the code? I may want to merge that fix into the main branch.

I would like to see is a set of compilation instructions, so that independent reviewers can generate exactly the same build and check that they obtain the same sha1 hash

(I believe the bitcoin-qt client is verified that way)

OK, this method I'm using is just not reliable enough with Vista. I guess I will just remove this example in the next release.

Sorry, I'm afraid I'm not an expert on anonymous transactions... Perhaps you'd better ask in the general forum?

I still have to test it on a few different Windows platforms... If all is OK I will post the (very simple) code later.
Hopefully it won't cause side-effects on Linux.

Yes I am aware of the way Bitcoin-Qt builds are made and cross-verified (except for the MacOS version, which Gavin is compiling all alone I believe), and indeed this is a very good security measure that is currently missing in the other clients.

However I use a combination of custom scripting and commercial packaging software as part of my build procedure,
so that might be a problem for others to use, licensing-wise.   I'll see if I can find open-source alternatives.

Building standalone Python apps for Windows (while supporting all OS flavors) can be a pain Sad

0.58 is out! I just did away with the command example in the console. Also, in portable mode, it will automatically look for the wallet file in the same location as the executable (no need to use -w at all). Please let me know if this works for you.

Also please could you see if the right-click menu works fine in the GUI (history tab)? Or does it still appear at strange places?

By the way, another thing that is somewhat related, but I'm not sure if it is Windows-specific or not: On Linux, what happens if you double-click on the balance of a transaction? For me, the context menu pops up, but at the very beginning of the line, not where the mouse pointer is. Anyway, not very important...

it's normal. I just did not expect users to bring the menu that way... Smiley

All servers are up, I just checked.
What version of the client are you using?
Latest stable version is 0.58, try to update perhaps?
