Anyone got exception running VW GeometricsObjects Examples?

Hi,

[VWNC 7.4.1 on Windows XP]
It's strange that they run smoothly in an original image but while have some
packages loaded Geometrics Examples will cause exception and VW halt there with
shift+ctrl+y getting no response. And the exception window is not rendered well
before system die.

I don't know what causes this. Maybe the Unicode support? 
Anyone who have ever got this kind of exceptions, please?

Best Regards,
Jim G

Does QuitSystem event handling work?

Hi all,

since VW 7.1, VW contains support for responding to QuitSystem events when Windows shuts down. This is
described in the release notes of VW 7.2.1. I am trying to use this feature, such that the application asks
the user if pending changes should be saved, and to disconnect any database connections. However, it
doesn't seem to work, and so far I didn't find out whether I it's my fault or a problem with the feature itself.

Here's what I did to test the feature, following the description in the release notes:
- In a subclass of InputState, there's a method #send:eventQuitSystem: which writes a timestamp to a log
file and calls 'super send: window eventQuitSystem: event '.
- An instance of the InputState subclass is installed, such that 'InputState default' answers this instance.
- In a workspace, I evaluated
    ObjectMemory registerObject: true withEngineFor: 'acceptQuitEvents'
  and saved the image.
- When I shut down Windows or end my Windows session, VisualWorks quits, but it does not create any log file.

As I said, I have no idea what's wrong. :-(

Re: annoying wheel mouse isse

That's a property of the mouse. Open your mouse properties and unassign the middle button. I think that's likely to require the mouse manufacturer's software rather than being in the generic Windows drivers. (I'm assuming you're using Windows).

Published Items - search by version?

Few times a week I find myself wishing there was an incremental search
for a version number in addition to the pundle name. Ideally not even a
separate field, but I could live with that if making a smart(er) single
search field is tricky.

Anyone else or is it just me? We're a small team that likes to publish
and merge often, so one ends up spending considerable amount of time in
seqscan mode when looking for a specific version number even a couple
weeks back, let alone few months back.

Cheers,

-Boris

Web tag caching issue ...

I posted this question back in june, but did not get an answer.  Somehow 
I then
forgot about it, until it came up again today.  Anyone know anything 
about this???

Using VW 7.3.1 -- I see the following problem sometimes ...

A tag of the form
   <cg:form name="abc" >
is looked up in the taglib, and found because another session had
created it.  So it just does a "copy" of that tag instance.

However, my "setName: ..." method had in fact done things, specifically 
added the name "abc" to the
session dictionary.  Since the setName: is in fact not invoked, the 
value does not get set into the session dictionary
and subsequent tags blow up.

Questions
  1. is this expected behavior?  I am using tiny-http at the moment, 
with two invocations from the same machine,
         one IE and one Firefox.
   2. is my doing things in a setXxx: just "wrong"?
   3. am I missing something totally?

Re: Web tag caching issue ...

I had answered it at the time, as follows.

-----------------
I'm thoroughly jet-lagged at the moment, however my first guess would be that this is related to you using "name" as an attribute name, and that this doesn't agree with the way the objects involved in tag processing think of name. I know that <cg:form name="abc" > will create a tag occurrence object which has a name that is "form". Their internal idea of a name ought not conflict with an attribute, but I can imagine that it might. If using a different attribute name than "name" helps, that would support my theory.

I also suspect that doing things in a setXYZ method might not be optimal. Why not just do it at the beginning of the doStart method, or somewhere similar. But that might also just mask other symptoms of the same problem.

I've created AR 50948 for this.

Re: annoying wheel mouse isse

well now, not sure if you have noticed but the wheel when actually pressed  
i.e. not spun will turn into this wild looking cursor and it allows you to  
do very cool hyper worm hole type of scrolling , so it would be a real  
drag not to have that around, try it in something like Acrobat, or  
certainly in browsers such as Firefox and Opera

but what would be nice is to say hey that when in VisualWorks, and  
especially since just because we have Travis around doesn't mean that we  
will get worm hole scrolling anytime soon, to indeed deactivate the "wheel  
pressed" event

so please put that right behind my request to fix the other annoying  
Opentalk ST-ST NAT issue :)

Re: annoying wheel mouse isse

I like sensitive mice ...

seriously I don't have the problem with any other app ever and you may  
argue that most don't a blue button available menu but me thinks something  
else is off
