When I open this database, and I click the “Item Name:” Text Editor box, then hit command F to perform a search, I get the error message shown earlier. Also, I am unable to make any searches using the Find/Select dialog, in this database, or in any others I might have open. To fix this issue, I quit and restart Pan X.
Interestingly, after restarting Pan X, when I use the data sheet to perform a search using command F to bring up the Find/Select dialog, there is no issue. Also, after I use the data sheet to search, any subsequent searches, whether thought the “Item Name” text editor box, of through the data sheet, work every time.
This issue occurs when the database is shared, and when it is not shared.
Do you have any suggestions on why this error might be occurring?
There is a library database built into Panorama that contains a form named FindSelectDialog. This is the form that you see when you press Command-F. If that form somehow got deleted or renamed, you would see that error message. When you relaunch Panorama, a fresh copy of the library database would be loaded, so that’s why it would start working again.
If I wanted to, I could intentionally cause this problem with this code:
If you see this problem again, here’s how you can get some additional information to help track down the problem. Open the View Organizer window, then check the Include Libraries button. Use the pop-up menu to select _FindSelectLib. It should look like this:
