Title: FireFly Crash
Post by: Petrus Vorster on December 02, 2017, 05:50:03 PM
I never had a Firefly crash of this nature before.

I created three Tab child forms, and they worked just fine.
Then i copied a button from another form and then all hell broke loose.

The form loads, but is changes size, background colour, loses its name, and continues to give me endless errors.
I removed it, re-wrote it, re-saved it. NOPE, once Firefly starts it corrupts the specific form file again.

I have so much work done on it, why on earth would it continue to refuse to cave changes and corrupt everything?

Very weird.

Hmmmmm..... not sure but you might have to manually edit the .frm file with Notpad (or other ascii text editor) to remove offending code?

Hi Paul.

Eventually i had to copy all the stuff i typed, delete the entire form again, re-compile, and create it again from scratch.
Then just used the info i kept for all the functions.

Whoah, never before had i seen that happen. Wont copy a button from one form to another again!! :)
