Not a bug Strange behavior in template editor and its output

One of my CSS templates contains this snippet:
Code:
.ctaBbcodeTable tr:hover
{
    background-color: @inlineMod;
}
If I 1) change "@inlineMod" to some other color, say, "yellow", 2) "Save All Changes", 3) undo the change (Ctrl+Z) in the editor window, and 4) hit the "Save All Changes" again, the template is marked red and saved as edited although it effectively contains no changes.

If I open the template again I get this view for the above-mentioned snippet:

If I hit "View Custom Changes" I get this view:

02.png

Now that is odd: what I see in the template editor as:
Code:
background-color:  background-color: @inlineMod;
is actually:
Code:
background-color: {xen:property inlineMod};
Any ideas what's going on here?

Just a short follow-up on this issue.

I made a mistake of using "@propertyname" syntax in the add-on installation files where it should have been "{xen:property propertyname}".

Correcting that resolved the issue. The template editor view and View Custom Changes now show the same results.

Indeed. Under these conditions this has behaved how it was supposed to.
