Problem with "Set programs' arguments" window - Linux Mint
« on: July 27, 2020, 01:51:40 pm »
Hello there, I have the following problem. When I click onto "Project => Set programs' arguments" nothing shows up. I looked up on the Internet if anyone's had the same problem, I found this thread:
http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/topic,16960.msg115515.html#msg115515
Yet, after making the changes to the "select_target.xrc" file everything remains as it was. MortenMacFly suggested nightly builds but it seems like there's no Linux support so I don't know what to do.
I would appreciate your help !

Which version of C::B are you using?. The window can be shown behind the main window, this happens with some windows in Linux when thay have no parent.

In line 1251 of cbproject.cpp this dialog (SelectTargetDlg) is created with no parent.

Should this be reported as a ticket?

burzum: What exactly is your problem? The problem described in the old topic is that a certain field in the dialog is invisible, but this has been fixed long ago.

Miguel Gimenez: This is problematic only if there is another window and you click on it. At least for me E17 it is not possible to make the Set Args window to be stacked behind the main window.

BlueHazzard: Posting issues for everything doesn't matter if they never get fixed. And first we have to know what is the exact nature of the problem.
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

Nothing happens when clicking the "Set programs' arguments" field. Nothing shows up.

Have you opened a project?. If you don't open/create a project the "Set programs' arguments" menu entry is enabled but it doesn't do anything.

This is a bug, you can create and run a program without a project, so the dialog should be available with no project.

Gracias, amigo! You are the man, solution was simpler than I thought.
