As long as bulk dispaly is not enabled, the performance loss seems minimal

Cookies should remember the last state and applied it during the page loading. No new configuration is required.

if it isn't a big effort, i would prefer forcing the opening of those details via parameter. This is because we put necessary information into the description of e.g. the testsuite.
If this is resolved by using a cookie this information could still be overlooked.

something like:

$tlCfg->exec_cfg->expand_testplan_notes = ENABLED;
$tlCfg->exec_cfg->expand_build_description = ENABLED;
$tlCfg->exec_cfg->expand_testsuite_details = ENABLED;

I think you can implement your own request, now that you have people to do this.
what do you think ?
config option must be
$tlCfg->exec_cfg->show_open = new stdClass();
$tlCfg->exec_cfg->show_open->testplan_notes = ENABLED;
$tlCfg->exec_cfg->show_open->build_description = ENABLED;
$tlCfg->exec_cfg->show_open->testsuite_details = ENABLED;

i will take a look. low priority. main focus is on requirement managment.

Guys, this configuration parameters solve nearly nothing. I am far to imagine that 20 testers using TL in one company will have easy agreement to set these parameters.
Using cookies will allow anybody has own configuration with minimum effort for development.

big disadvantage is that tester has to open test suite content for the first time. if he is forced to see the content he gets all necessary information.

i prefer forcing the user to see information.

In this case you can implement these configuration parameters with three states:
closed, opened, last_value.
Last_value should be default value.

I agree with such design then.

this is your opinion.
same thing can be applied to any sinlge TL configuration.
This can be thought as default system value, then can be used in conjuntion with a cookie.
Then if cookies is not defined => use system config,
Someday we will allow users to save his/her preference in a better way than cookie => on db.

After re-reading, I'm agree with Martin solution, implementation will be:

// CLOSED: ignore user choice saved on cookie
// OPENED: ignore user choice saved on cookie
// LAST_VALUE: use user choice saved on cookie

$tlCfg->exec_cfg->show_open = new stdClass();
$tlCfg->exec_cfg->show_open->testplan_notes = LAST_VALUE;
$tlCfg->exec_cfg->show_open->build_description = LAST_VALUE;
$tlCfg->exec_cfg->show_open->testsuite_details = LAST_VALUE;

Feature passed tests.
Feature works for normal execution and bulk execution.
