[29 Jan 2010] Found a bug

If you accidentally give the same layer name to a TextOut()-object, a system crash is caused with HW4.5 (on AOS3.x).

Here an example:

Code: Select all

@VERSION        4,5
@DISPLAY { Width=640, Height=480, Color = #BLACK, Title = "test"}

  EnableLayers()

  CreateBGPic(1, 640, 480, #GRAY)
  DisplayBGPic(1)
  SelectBGPic(1) 
 
  TextOut(100,100,"texttext",{name="mytext"})
  TextOut(100,100,"text2text",{name="mytext"})

  EndSelect()
Happy hunting! Tom

I dont think thats bug. I think its supposed to work that way.

For each layer must have their unique ID (or name), so if you make new layer and assign same name to it than to already existing one, then how are you going to address them separately anymore?

And if i rightly remember, when i accidentally have done that too by loop going and executing same line twice (in certain cases only), i think error message was about "layer name already exists".

If Hollywood crashes, and even worse, if the entire operating system crashes, it is for sure a bug :-)

Of course, each layer has to have different names, but if not, then it shouldn't bring up a guru meditation ;-)

If i execute the script below, then the chrash happens everytime.

Yes, here too. I've fixed this. Thanks for the report.
