FS#9680 - empty .cfg file takes time to load

when i create a empty .cfg file in the themes-folder and select it with browse thems, the screen jitters(?) very short, then it says “loading…” for approx. 1 sec, then “loaded settings”…

but actally there is nothing to load, so why does it use so “much” time? the “loading….”-message should be not visible because the “settings loaded”-screen appears.

i know its not a real bug, but there could be something improved. maybe there are things checked which dont need to be checked, maybe all related settings are overwritten with the same settings or whatever. i dont know.

patch is in the comments if this annoys you too much

i forgot: sansa e280 + r19396.

if it really annoys you, this patch will fix it. but I dont know if its worth putting in because how often would an empty .cfg be loaded?

ok, now empty .cfg files or .cfg files with nonsense need approx 1/10 sec :)

but if you create a .cfg file with a single line in it, i.e. background color: 000000, it needs again the full 2s to jitter, show “loading….” and “settings loaded”….

but i admit its not a real bug. if nobody thinks it makes sense to fix the non-existent bug, it can be closed.

there is no way to make it shorter… either we apply all the settings or we dont, so even a cfg with one line will still need to apply all settings

rockbox could overwrite only the new settings….. but i think the result is not worth the work (…??, you know what i mean) so this can be closed.

no, the setting loading and setting applying are done separately, and because of the way settings get applied this isnt possible.
