Works with: 1.0.4, 1.1

The message app can be a pain when you have multiple conversations going on. You have to swipe back and then pick someone else quite often. It gets annoying. This modification makes it so a new card is created whenever you click into a conversation.

Edit /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.messaging/app/controllers/listview-assistant.js We are going to replace the launchChatView function with the following...

launchChatView: function(chatThreadId) {
	//Need to jump to that stage if it exists
	var stageController = Mojo.Controller.appController.getStageController("messaging"+chatThreadId);
		if (stageController) {
			stageController.activate();
			return;
		}

	var params = {name: 'messaging' + chatThreadId,
			lightweight: Mojo.Controller.appInfo.lwStages
	};

	var callback = function(controller) {
		controller.pushScene('chatview',chatThreadId,{
					focusWindow: true
				});		
	};

	Mojo.Controller.getAppController().createStageWithCallback(params, callback); //doesnt create ifit exists sooo
  },

Now in /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.messaging/app/controllers/chatview-assistant.js Comment out lines 246 and 247 (WebOS 1.1: Lines 289 & 290). This will make it so if you back gesture in a chat, then it doesn't bring you back to the conversation list or do anything else.

Either reboot or refresh/kill LunaSysMgr.

Concerns

There's some delay in creating the new cards. I'm not sure why though.

Unread message counter in listview doesn't always update when you view a conversation.

Make sure to comment out the correct lines on the last step (disable back gesture). In 1.3, they are lines 324 and 325. The block to look for is:

} else if(event.type == Mojo.Event.back) {

   event.stop();
   this.popAndRevealListView();
   return;

}

which should be changed to:

} else if(event.type == Mojo.Event.back) {

   //event.stop();
   //this.popAndRevealListView();
   return;

}

Major Bugs

None yet
