Is There a Way to Stop Search From Force-Opening?

Recommended Posts

I hate this.

I don't recall that this used to be a "feature".

When you log on, search automatially forces open. You don't get to decide if you need to search something. It opens right up and half the time lags you out especially if you are on a laggy sim, and blocks your view, until you can finally X the damn thing out.

Is there a way to turn this off on the debug menu or somewhere?

It's especially obnoxious because if you have adult checked off, you'll get a face full of child pornography much of the time or something else you didn't CHOOSE to see in that force-opened SEARCH.

Just because you checked off adult to be able to fly to adult land you own, or help customers who have themselves rated "adult" or go to a store somebody put in "adult" regardless of its content doesn't mean you should be FORCED to view the ugly and demeaning top view of search. Checking off adult doesn't mean having adult content shoved in your face; it's an option to CHOOSE. That's not what is happening with force-search.

Even if it were unicorns and rainbows, I wouldn't want it because it blocks the screen.

There's no actual setting, but, the cilent is going to 'remember' the search window's state at logout.  It's only a yes or no value so even if minimized (see small icon in far corner of window) it will be remembered as 'open'.  So, be sure you have no instances of search on your screen while logging off.  Be it window or minimized floater. (^_^)

If that doesn't work, your settings file may be glitched.  As found in the following path:

C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\SecondLife\[avatar name]\settings_per_account.xml

There's a key called "floater_vis_search" which will have a boolean of 0 or 1.  For no search window to show, make sure it's 0.  One thing I've noticed is that the client saves it in different ways.  If saving as 0, it'll be an integer.  If saving as 1, it'll be a boolean.  So, I'll paste 2 samples below.  The line directly below "<key>Value</key>" will be the determining factor. (^_^)

Search will show:

<key>floater_vis_search</key>
<map>
<key>Comment</key>
<string>Window Visibility for search</string>
<key>Type</key>
<string>Boolean</string>
<key>Value</key>
<boolean>1</boolean>
</map>

Search will not show:

<key>floater_vis_search</key>
<map>
<key>Comment</key>
<string>Window Visibility for search</string>
<key>Type</key>
<string>Boolean</string>
<key>Value</key>
<integer>0</integer>
</map>

 

Final note: the "<string>Boolean</string>" line seems to never change in spite of the tags getting renamed. (>_<)
