Hi Damion,

This change here https://bitbucket.org/galaxy/galaxy-central/pull-request/639/fix-for-librarydatasettoolparameter/diff might fix it.

Thanks for reporting the issue,

in /lib/galaxy/tools/parameters/basic.py under class LibraryDatasetToolParameter( ToolParameter ) gets past the error.  Now a popup with "Grid failed" appears, with an OK button that cleanly exits (see attached).  So I guess that part is still broken unless there is more to the input parameter setup.  I had tested with

<param name="test" type="library_data" label="test" help="test help"/>

I do like your better solution though, esp. if above control can't be primed with the desired library or folder.

Subject: Re: [galaxy-dev] Tool param type "library_data"

It was only ever used for one tool that I know of, but we should make
it work since we try to never break backward compatibility. If you add
the 'history=None' kwarg is that sufficient to fix the problem?

However, I think a better solution to this problem is to build it into
dataset parameters. Anywhere a dataset can be provided it should be an
option to provide a library dataset. Then one could imagine an option
to restrict to only library datasets and a specific library.
