"real number"slider problem in Qwindows

Hi,

I am still using the the good old Qwindows
in some applications.

The latest version is 4.24 Release A. In
release note you can read the following:
“Fixes a problem where dragging a ‘real number’
slider could result in ‘not a number’ (consequently,
the slider stops working)”.

Unfortunately, this error still exists, and
I am waiting for the patch for two years.

Maybe I am the only one using Qwindows or
real sliders, or I make something wrong.

Can anybody help me?

Well, I remember addressing that particular problem. Perhaps you have a
variant I missed? If you could please upload a small test program to tech.
support, I’d be happy to take a look at it.
(Also, please try the most recent release, if you haven’t already got it. It
should be dated 2000.)

The latest version: qwrt424.tar.F, its date: 11.08.1998 not
regarding the Scitech display driver addons (31.03.2000).
These are updates from /updates/qwrt40/Released. Where can
I get newer updates from?

I guess you’ll have to ask your QNX rep. I uploaded a newer version a few
months ago.

I have fixed this problem and have uploaded a new version (4.25B) of the
‘screen’ process to QSSL. Please let me know when you get a chance to try it
out :slight_smile:
