    @Phillip Z Hey Dave you may have missed it: Is it possible to change font sizes?

    My question too, since it shows up a bit heavy.

    @Phillip Z Perhaps it is one you have that I do not.

    yes, some

    @Joost R yes, some

    Hopefully shaves off some troubleshooting time :)

    @Phillip Z Hey Dave you may have missed it: Is it possible to change font sizes?

    sorry... yes.... all aspects can be controlled... some (like colors) are via propertys in the IDE
    others like fonts, spacing etc are via constants.... if you find an aspect that cannot be altered in on of those ways let me know.

    Joost. sending ME a list of your plugins won't help, as I have no idea what they might do, or how they might do it... They'd just be "names" to me :(

    I understand, but have a look anyway. Tell me, what do you want me to do ? Since i am not using obscure plugins, it's for sure others will also run into this problem if not solved now. Take the lead over your project.

    Phillip and Joost have a list of 7 plugins in common, Joost has 20 that Phillip does not (mostly MBS) and Phillip has 6 that Joost does not

    Joost... did the lastest upload solve the "corrupt" file issue?

  8. Dave S

    So far we have a list of 3 plugins that Joost has that nobody else (who it is working for) does

    Lexing Plugin.xojo_plugin
    fp Plugin.xojo_plugin
    MBS Xojo Compression Plugin.xojo_plugin

  9. Phillip Z

    It is not MBS Xojo Compression Plugin.xojo_plugin

  10. Dave S

    FP PLUGIN is by Bob Delaney and is for extended Floating Point function
    Lexing is a text editor control by VanHoek software

    I ran across some very old posts (2008) that where a user was having a conflict issue with MBS and Quicktime
    the "solution" seemed to lie in the name of the app.... Try changing CPI.xojo.binary.project to XCPI.xojo.binary.project or some other name... plucking at straws here

    yes, I have found the conflict. It's fp Plugin.xojo_plugin ! It can be downloaded for free from Bod Delany's site . I need this plugin for several projects, so want the conflict been solved if possible.

    would love to be able to help... but I have no way of knowing what the conflict could even be..
    I will attempt to download that plug-in and see what I can determine, if anything....
    do I just need to put it in the "plugin folder?

    @Phillip Z Hey Dave you may have missed it: Is it possible to change font sizes?

    the next release moves a few items to the design time IDE

    • Default Fontsize : now 16
    • Default FontName : now SYSTEM
    • DataHeight (this determines how tall input boxes are) : now 24

    the conflict with FP Plugin seems to be this line in CPI

    newValue=Str(If(zOldValue="TRUE","FALSE","TRUE"))

    Seems my use of STR was redundant here.... and removing it "solved" the problem.

    newValue=If(zOldValue="TRUE","FALSE","TRUE")

    But there is still an issue with the Plugin, in my opinion

    @Dave S do I just need to put it in the "plugin folder?

    yes, and make sure to restart the IDE completely in order to load the plugin.

    @Dave S But there is still an issue with the Plugin, in my opinion

    I use this plugin since 1,5 year already and haven't had any issue with it, related to any other code I wrote.

    @Joost R I use this plugin since 1,5 year already and haven't had any issue with it, related to any other code I wrote.

    well is seems the plugin doesn't like the syntax I mentioned above... however, removing the "redundant" STR() did solve it.....
    a new version is being prepared now.

    New version with above mentioned changes has been uploaded
    along with the ability to change the 3 new properites mentioned above

    Glad to here..

    I did some more experimenting with that plugin installed, and a clean Xojo project.

    It seems that any code the uses STR(x) where x is already a String variable will trigger this error.....

    @Dave S It seems that any code the uses STR(x) where x is already a String variable will trigger this error.....

    Did a quick test and I see the same. I now know why I am never hit by this before. I use "Cstr" instead.

    Dim a As String = "Joost"
    Dim b As String
    b = CStr(a)
    
    Break
