OEA 10.2B07: Corrupted Sourcecode through OEA!

Posted by Stefan Marquardt on 12-Jun-2013 01:38

In the last time, as i worked often with OEA in a fast way, i noticed that something is changing the case of my methods!



public character ReceiptpositionPayCardCCPrintTrx( piPosition as integer ):

Something has changed Position to position!


public character ReceiptPositionPayCardCCPrintTrx( piPosition as integer ):

This effect belongs to methods, properties and(!) comments!!!

I have activated many autocorrection options and use keyboard shortcuts for autocorrections and save.

Sometimes i noticed, when i type in a very fast way, that my sourcecode became corrupted because all "autothings" seems to run in the same time!

I am 99,99999% sure that this is a multithreading problem within OEA (the added things from Progress to Eclipse).

Does anybody else noticed this things?

10.2B07 is still named Architect - v11 is PDS. Which version are you using when you see this behavior?

Do you have your Preferences set for keyword casing - such as change casing save. The default opion is not to save casing. *note: this may not be it, as you would see all keywords change not just position.

I am confused about your first question, using 10.2B07, not V11.

I have active this option (working the most time without trouble):


(all options)

As You type

(all options)

Apply keyword(s) casing on save

Expand database tables and fields

and some others.

my mistake - the name of this forum is "PDS formerly Architect" - I normally respond to these via email and not progress.com, so it looked to me like this was the subject created by the OP.

I have the same settings in Architect, also for 10.2B07. I also have my default casing as lowercase.

Perhaps you have "position" as a table name somewhere in your schema? Or it could be that position is reserved word and this is somewhat buggy behavior.

The problem is that it happens rarely but if it happens it's a bad thing, escpecially if i didn't notice it because OEA shows no error.
It seems to be a bug, a very nasty one.
