Bug: getPluginPreferencesFlag can not get the correct setting of DEBUG flag in my plugin

$debug = getPluginPreferencesFlag( "DEBUG" ) can not get the correct setting of DEBUG flag in my plugin.

Test case

I have copied the EmptyPlugin for my new own plugin which is called PhotoarchivePlugin. If I use the $debug = ...::getPluginPreferencesFlag( "DEBUG" ) like the example, $debug never becomes 1 although DEBUG is set to 1 in the Plugin preferences. In DefaultPlugin it works. For now I've changed to getPluginPreferencesValue( "DEBUG" ) and it works for me.

Follow up

I forgot to add the link to my support question: GetPluginPreferencesFlagDoesNotWork

-- MarkusKolb - 20 Sep 2004

I have the same problem. Looking into SessionPlugin.pm, I found this:

    $debug = TWiki::Func::getPreferencesFlag( "\U$pluginName\E_DEBUG" );

This works. I don't know why. I use Perl5.8.4/Apache2.0.52/mod_perl1.99_16 on WinXP.

It works because you are user getPreferencesFlag and not getPluginPreferencesFlag. The bug is against getPluginPreferencesFlag.

Ah, OK, I should've read GetPluginPreferencesFlagDoesNotWork first. Never mind. stick out tongue
