D7, IDE Bug / Issue
Posted on 2004-11-18
I am running D7, Update Patch 1 has been installed.
i am about 10 months into a project, and suddenly (over the last couple of weeks)
i keep getting a error kick in.
now this error is 3 fold.
there is 1 that when i run Delphi it causes an access violation. then removes some items from my forms (ie the the TPopupMenu's will be removed, but the declorations are still in my dfm and in the pas file. its just gone from the ide..)
then i can close delphi, re open, and no access violations...
then i open the form again, and the same the TPopupmenus dissappear, (oh and on closing the form it always asks if i want to remove decloration xxxMN for all of the items in the popup. as like i said the declorations are all there.
then after closing the form (without saving) and open again its all fine....(aaaaaagh).
ok thats kind of 1 and 2.
the 3rd scenario, is sometimes when i open a form i can do (stuff), then on closing the form it lkeeps trying to redirect links, saying things like, (this is from memory) cannot find link for control xxxED, remove or redirect link?
then the redirect option lists all open forms. i just select remove link, and all seems fine.
now there are no accross unit links.
and once again if i dont save then open again its usually fine.
what is going on?
has anyone else had these problems.
have i done something totally obscure in my code thats causing problems (doubtfull)
is this a bug in delphi?
now i know thats about 200 questions, but you get the jist...
oh and if anyone says reinstall Delphi, we get the same issue on a different machine too.
Any help gratefully recieved.
Cheers in advance
