I've a problem with this IF sentence in Visual Studio 2010 C++:
      if (dataAligV!=0)
      {
            objPT=frmPH-objPT;
      }

If I run the program in Debug Mode it works fine and does'nt execute the "objPT=" sentence but in release mode (with the same input data)  it doesn't work.

In release mode, if I add some code to do a txt trace, it also works fine. I know it could be a hard issue to solve, but I would appreciate if anyone can help me.

tks in advance,
Leonel

If the results vary like that, probable cause is an uninitialized variable...

Try setting an initial value for "dataAligV" when you declare it...

So you are saying if you put something here
 if (dataAligV!=0)
      {
            objPT=frmPH-objPT;
   // Dump dataAligV here
      }

Open in new window

It works the way you want to?

Yes, JulianH. Also if no code is inserted but in DEBUG MODE works fine. The problem arises when I build the code in RELEASE MODE. It's hard to solve...

For more info, it is a WIN32 project creating "int __stdcall fnCreateCardEx" and exporting to be used by an VB6 ActiveX. This function do some graphic printing over plastic cards using WINGDI

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

n2fc, I've checked that a hundred times (but I'will do this again). All variables are initialized.
