Fixed border-color is saved incorrectly, resulting in missing color in shortcut properties


Well-known member
I have the following property in style:
  @property "primaryContent";
   background-color: @contentBackground;
   padding: 9px;
   border: 1px solid @primaryLightest;
   border-radius: 0;
   border-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, .8) rgba(192, 192, 192, .3) rgba(192, 192, 192, .3) rgba(255, 255, 255, .8);
   box-shadow: 0 5px 5px -5px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2);
   @property "/primaryContent";
When viewed in admin control panel, it shows border-color in extra block instead of assigning color values to border block.

That wouldn't be a big issue, except that in other templates I use shortcut for that border:
{xen:property primaryContent.border}
Parser changes it to
  @property "primaryContent.border";
   border: 1px solid @primaryLightest;
   border-radius: 0;
   @property "/primaryContent.border";
where border-color is missing.

And what happens, if you delete the border-part from the extra Block and changes the border, save it and reload the Settings?

Same error. Problem is in WebDav parser that fails to parse border color if it has values that aren't color keywords or hex color values.

Found a workaround: assigning each value individually
  border-top-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, .8);
   border-right-color: rgba(192, 192, 192, .3);
   border-bottom-color: rgba(192, 192, 192, .3);
   border-left-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, .8);

This is down to naive parsing of the color/style/width attributes. It's just split on spaces. You can workaround it by removing the spaces in each color.
