play and build are greyed out
« on: September 19, 2015, 12:34:17 pm »
play and build are greyed out. How can I make them active?  I'm not sure what I did that made them greyed out

Why would codeblocks's build and run button be greyed out instead of green?

here is what i have



if relevant, here's settings..compiler,  toolchain tab.

Obviously there is build log, so you've been able to build at least once.
Can you reproduce this reliably after an restart of C::B?

I was avoiding restarting it because I was interested in fixing it without needing to restart it, so as to understand the IDE better. But anyhow, I have restarted it and it works now.  Ta

I suggest learning to use CB Projects before doing much more work.

For future references,

I had the same issue initially. During setup, the final default box will give you 4 options 2 yes, and 2 no (take the next part with a grain of salt i'm recalling the verbage from a foggy memory) a default setting not recognize the word blocks as C++, i chose no(...) which, which for some reason wouldn't allow me to Build and Run more than once. After restarting the program I chose one of the default settings as yes (...) and the problem went away. I don't know if this is the solution, but this was my way of 'fixing' the issue.
