Hi Rudolf,

it is not as easy as looks like. Currently a collection can be visible or hidden (but always loaded). The feature you want will cause lot of problems, e.g.:

- how to add 3rd state (not loaded) to the interface and teach users what is the difference between the not loaded and not visible collection
- this functionality will break the globalShowHiddenAlarms=true option (hidden collection != do not show alarms from this collection)
- if you load a collection each time when user clicks to a checkbox, you can/will crash your browser (~ 30 concurrent requests /30 enabled collections/ = browser crash) ... => it requires request queue
- if we load all collection at once, we can reduce the number of requests to the server - we can get sync-token changes from one PROPFIND request instead of N

CalDavZAP 0.10.0 will add time-range synchronization, so you can configure number of months you want to load from past (default 1) and future (default 1). If you don't change these configuration options then your client will load only 3 months of data (if you set both options to 0, then only 1 month). The rest of data will be loaded only if you click to date out of the already downloaded time-range (it will extend the "window" of downloaded data). If you use DAViCal or other "good" server with support for time-range filtering and sync-collection REPORT then CalDavZAP will be REALLY FAST.

RC1 coming tonight or tomorrow :-)

i watched this thread as it is very interesting to me, too. After applying the patch, now the selection of calendars is persistent. But one thing is a little bit confusing: deselected calendars are hidden in the interface but still get loaded when the gui starts up. Wouldn't it be a better performance, if the hidden calendars are only loaded on demand? Only when the user activates the deselected items again? With the settings remembered, i now don't see my archive calendars in the gui. But startup still take a long time.

Just to say: it is a great enhancement, that the settings are now remembered! MANY thanks for this option and the software itself!

this is true ... we store the URL with the domain name because if you use multiple CardDAV accounts we need to distinguish between identical collection names.

I got an idea what went wrong yesterday. It seems, that the saved
settings are dependent of the server name, one use for connecting to
CalDavZAP. The server, on which CalDavZAP and Davical runs, can be
reached with two different DNS names or better domains. Maybe I used one
in Firefox and the other on Chrome.
