Hi,

I've submitted a patch to BerliOS (https://developer.berlios.de/patch/index.php?func=detailpatch&patch_id=902&group_id=5358) for the DDE bug when "Tip of the Day" is enabled.  It seems to work fine (in Windows XP SP2, at least) if you create the DDE server before displaying a modal dialog box (any modal dialog caused the bug, not just the "Tip of the Day" dialog).

The patch is just a simple shuffle of code in src/src/app.cpp.

Cheers

wooohooo, this sounds great. I will try it out this evening and apply the patch then.
And the DDE-oscar goes to ....... TheNullinator. ;-)

Now let's all hope we never had it when there were no tips displayed, I can't remember anymore.

Can't wait to get home this evening .....

Several days ago, I have post something about that http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php?topic=2400.msg18924#msg18924

Someone told me that there is no relation between Tip of the Day and the bug you talk about.
But, since I uncheck Tip of the Day at startup, I have no more problem.

Hello,

For waht I have understood, the bug seems related to modal dialog boxes in general and not specifically with "Tip of the Day".

Best wishes,
Michael

Yeah, it's appears to be modal dialogs in general.  The same problem occurs for MessageBox and wsSafeShowMessage.  I didn't test it with non-modal dialogs.

:) Maybe you should test it and report.


Could this be a MS bug or wxWidgets one?

By doing some googling, it seems to be a M$ Windows bug.  :)  It seems to have hiccups with modals and DDE.

Let's see the link!
Is there nothing we can do?

Here are two:

http://www.angelfire.com/biz/rhaminisys/support.html#ExecTestProblem

That one describes a problem like Code::Blocks had.  It seems to use a DDE server control written in VB.

http://blogs.msdn.com/oldnewthing/archive/2005/02/28/381591.aspx#381627

This person indicates he has had trouble with DDE and modals at startup.

That was what a found from a quick search.  Some more comprehensive information may be found if you tried harder.  It seems, though, that setting up the DDE server prior to displaying a modal works.

Cheers

Hi All,

Is it possible to have an "SVN" like repository for binary files? I am thinking that I only need to download files that have changed since the last nightly build. Just a thought but will likely save time for those of us who are using dial-up connection.

Thanks,
Quantufinity

That would help some, and I will have to check this but I think most of the space is taken up by the executable, libraries, and pluggins.  The only thing you don't need to update every time is the images and wxWidgets library.  I am not sure how space the image take up but I think that they aren't a very big chunk.  So I am not sure how useful it would be.
