Why does the Code Explorer ALWAYS open!

Even if I close the Code Explorer and/or undock it and/or kick the pc in fustration, the code explorer ALWAYS appears.

Even when I don't want it too.

For 10 whole points at Grade A, how the hell do I get rid of it!!!! (NOTE : To get the points, it has to stay gone when I reload Delphi).

Oh.

Using Delphi 5 (Build 6.18) Update Pack 1 on Win98SE (4.10.2222 A).

Regards,

Richard Quadling.

Nope!

None of the settings in the group "Explorer options" are checked.

I removed mine that way. 'Automatically show explorer' is checked by default so it should be checked now, unless you removed it yourself. Try checking 'Automatically...' and close/open your source window, then uncheck it, and do the same thing again... Nothing else I can think of if this doesnt help.

I found the problem.

Somehow, the default for the state of the code explorer was saved in a default configuration which was loaded when Delphi loads (in the delphi/bin directory).

I always double-click a .DPR or a .BPG file.

Delphi then loads with the default of Code Explorer open. Then it loads the project. The config file for the project does NOT have any settings for the explorer and leaves it alone.

Even if I turn the explorer on, quit, reload, turn off explorer, save, quit, etc. No change.

Removing the default config file from Delphi/bin solved the trick!
