Taskmenu editor blank

Unread post by Audun Tönnesen »

Hi: (v. 7.4)
I have created my own window-menu.
After that, I opened the Taskmenu editor and made desired changes.
After that I edited project icon and removed the taskwindow toolbar.
Then I wanted to edit the Taskmenu again, but only a blank menu-editor comes up (but the window caption is correct: 'TaskMenu.' ). But when I rebuild, the taskmenu is displayed correctly.
What happened? Did I mess it up when I removed the toolbar?

regards
Regards,
Audun.

Hm, strange....!

When I close down the IDE and restart it, I'm able to edit the TaskMenu (and my own Window-menu) just ONCE. (Just closing the actual project isn't enough - the whole system must be restarted).
After that, same problem as above.
Regards,
Audun.

Even stranger: since my original post, I've done absolutely nothing in the code. I just restarted the system twice - and now 'magically' it seems to work. I used to kick my old TV set, but never my Prolog IDE :-)

Audun.

I guess that we consider the problem solved (even though we don't know why).

It is normally not necessary to "TV-kick" the IDE, but should the IDE/Project go into a strange state. It may be worth to give it a kick.

It may be worth knowing the most efficient "kick":
  • Close the IDE (the one with relevant project)
  • Delete the OBJ directory of the relevant project
  • Reopen the IDE
Deleting the OBJ directory (especially while the IDE is closed) is more effective than rebooting the machine (which rarely helps, unless the entire machine seems to be affected).
