list::getMemberIndex_nd not captured in Help file database ?

list::getMemberIndex_nd is a welcome addition to VIP 9x. Checking it out I find that if I open list.cl , click on getMemberIndex_nd and press F1 the VP Wiki home page is opened, but if I repeat this operation on adjacent predicate definitions in list.cl the appropriate HTML Help file page opens.

Re: VIP 802 Find in Files stopped working

I now understand about the 'grep' registry settings -- they appear to store the settings and position of the Find in Files dialog. What happens is that if I highlight a folder in the project tree and press Ctrl-Shift-F the IDE greys out slightly as it would do when losing focus, but the search dialo...

Re: Help! trying to figure out what I am doing wrong

Paul, take a look at my notes on the zipped main.pro file. I see you don't have everything fleshed out yet -- I understand why. This is not a complete solution, but it will get you started. I tried to keep old Turbo Prolog syntax. VIP 9x code style would be much cleaner looking.

Re: Help! trying to figure out what I am doing wrong

Paul, is it your intent to recreate "The Shrink" in old style prolog syntax or migrate it to VIP 9x syntax?

Re: Help! trying to figure out what I am doing wrong

Try this instead:

Code: Select all

        S2 = stdio::readLine()  % <== missing parentheses,
Easy mistake to make ... I've done it hundreds of times with my tired old eyes.

Re: VIP 904 freezes system

I just noticed this morning that there was a Microsoft Last failed install attempt of a Windows "Quality Update" the same day I was having this problem.

Re: VIP 904 freezes system

Good advice. The only time I ever do that is to restart Cortana when the Windows Explorer search function stops working.

Re: VIP 904 freezes system

In Task Manager I noticed multiple instances of Cortana in suspended state so I ended the tasks and let Cortana restart. 904 behaves more smoothly now but I don't know if doing that is cure or coincidence.

VIP 802 Find in Files stopped working

The Find in Files function stopped working a few days ago, both using Ctrl-Shift-F and the menu Edit > Find in Files . I completely uninstalled and reinstalled VIP 802, but no joy. The same function worked normally in VIP 904 (before I uninstalled it). The 802 problem started before installing 903. ...

Installation/Uninstallation

Does the 9x installer overwrite an existing installation or add another one? I decided to uninstall 904 and start over and was surprised to find that IOBit Uninstaller found 3 different installations of 9x ... Yikes! Uninstalled all 3 instances of 9x, and 8x; reinstalled 8x and 904. Behaves the same...

VIP 8 & 9 differences - move Class/interface for dialog

With VIP 8x one could right-click on a dialog's class in the project tree and use the context menu to move the .cl, .pro, .dlg files to a new package. The .i file for the dialog could be moved similarly in a separate similar operation. Win VIP 9x the Move Class/Interface context menu moves the .cl, ...

Migrating a project to VIP 9x from VIP 8x

Here is a strategy that I used to migrate a project with my personal library packages from 8x to 9x: Copy your 8x project to new working directory Open the copied project <myProject>.vipprj with VIP 9x. You can do this with right-click from Windows Explorer after you copy the project. Do not build t...
