Keep Server Action steps expanded when tree view is the preferred design

Wappler Version : 6.0.2
Operating System : W11
Server Model: NodeJS

Actual behavior

All steps are collapsed, down to every single nested step.

How to reproduce

Open a SA. Enable tree view, if not already enabled, and re-open.

Expected behavior

As in 5.8.2, when opening a SA, all steps should be expanded by default.
Right now, trying to expand every single step is a huge waste of time.
Please revert this new behaviour to as it was. Or provide an option in Wappler settings if you wish to still keep this as default behaviour.

I see that with two extra clicks, this can be solved - using the expand all option.

If the above can be implemented, that would be great. Else, two clicks is something we can live with.

Bump. @George Any update on this?
Its extremely annoying to have to expand the steps every single time!


Can this be turned into a Feature Request? - I suspect @george might get an idea of the number of people who find this behaviour super frustrating.

Bump - @sid could you rename the post to make it clear it is now a FR. I’m not convinced people who had already seen it realise.

Thanks @sid :crossed_fingers:
For me, and I know it is a personal preference thing, this is the single-most frustrating part of my day atm


You are not alone. You, me and our many other devs in our company are in the same boat.
I am sure many in the community have the same problem as well.

Same here. It’s still baffling me that we’re the only ones crying about it.

Another bump


Praying this will make it into a Thursday release note soon :pray:

@george I want to highlight how utterly frustrating this simple thing is. Constantly having to expand tree views is so time consuming and wasteful. All we are asking for is a UI setting to allow us to choose whether tree views are expanded by default or not.

I beg you to consider adding this asap, it is getting me down every day and creating a negative experience.

What is even worse than the basic principle of the current behaviour is that when working on API files, if a data picker is opened on a component from within anything other than the top level (e.g. in a condition, repeat etc.) the context doesn't pick this up so you MUST expand the tree to get to where you are working and pick variables/values

Please, please, please, please, please :pray:
