Running 10.2.0.b24 on Monterey I’ve run into what appears to be a new version of an old error but this time I’ve tracked down the source.
In the ServerMonitor offered on the Database Exchange, the .Initialize includes a formxy 0,0
I have ServerMonitor in my login items so it launches when the machine starts. In that case, it results in an error: ‘.Initialize Error (ServerMonitor) FormXY statement must be used when form view is active.’
The file has only one window, a form, that is set to open when it starts.
If I Quit Panorama and launch the file, it starts Panorama and opens the file without the error so it seems limited to machine startups.
In March, Robert Ameeti reported a bug in startup of the .Initialization procedure as reported by NSNotify: ‘SetFormOptions failed because database “” does not contain a form named “”.’ In that case the prime suspect was in setting the form color based on the monitoring status: FormColor rgb(65535,1000,1000)
Other than the formxy and form color there are no other references to the form.
I’m guessing these are related issues though and that the initialization is getting out ahead of the drawing of the form - but only on full startups.
