I'm pretty new to PML so I have a learning curve ahead of me.  

I am building a simple form that has a list and a view, along with two buttons.  The list is populated from a directore, the view is populated from a folder of plotfiles, based on which item in the list is selected.  The problem is, the methods are not being recognized.  

I am able to load the form, but when I try to show it, the init() method is not found.  Any ideas?

thanks,
sekans

Is the init() method public?

I don't know, how can I find out.  I'll post the form definition below.

setup form !!miscequi
   !!miscequi.formtitle = 'Build Misc Equipment'
   !!miscequi.initcall  = '!this.Init()'
   
   list     .equip 'Select Equipment' call '!this.LoadPlotfile()' width 20 length 15
   view     .plot plot hei 9 aspect 0.8 bord on

   button .build   'Create' at x0 ymax+1 call '!bekmiscequi.Build()'
   button .dismiss 'Dismiss' at x0 ymax+1 CANCEL
exit

define method .Init()
   !dir       = object FILE('\\pdmsws1\pdms\bek11.2ui\MiscEquipment')
   !FileList  = object ARRAY()
   !Descript  = object ARRAY()
   !FileNames = object ARRAY()
   !TmpFile   = object FILE()
   !count     = object REAL()
   
   !s = object STRING()

   !this.equip.Clear()

   !FileList = !dir.Files()
   !count = arraysize(!FileList)
   do !i from 1 to $!count
      !FileNames.Append(!FileList[$!i].Fullname())
      !s = !FileList[$!i].Entry()
      !s = !s.Before('.')
      !Descript.Append(!s)
   enddo
     
   !this.equip.dtext = !Descript
   !this.equip.rtext = !FileNames
endmethod

define method .LoadPlotFile()
   !s = object STRING()

   !this.plot.Clear()

   !dir       = object FILE('\\PDMSWS1\pdms\bek11.2ui\MiscEquipment\PlotFiles')
   !ext       = '.plt'
   
   !s = !this.equip.selection('DTEXT')

   !this.plot.add('$!dir\$!s$!ext')
   handle any
      !this.plot.add('$!dir\empty$!ext')
      $p No plot file for $!s
   endhandle
endmethod

define method .Build()
   $p Building...
   !s = object STRING()

   !s = !this.equip.selection()
   $m/$!s
$P $!s
endmethod
