Open B+ File?

Archives Forums/BlitzPlus Bug Reports/Open B+ File?

Hi everyone,

I was reformatting the data structure in one of my larger projects, converting stuff to data blocks, arrays, etc. When I tried to run the program (using F5 and the button) it prompts me to open a B+ file.

If I cancel, the program ends. If I open a file, the file opens, an error comes up (Data statements must be constant) on the program, then closes.

I've never seen this before, and it seems kinda buggy so any advice would help.

Note: Running Windows Vista

Well it stopped doing what it was doing, but I guess if anyone else experiences this then investigation can continue.

Something like this has been reported several times over the years. It happens with various malformed Data statements. I don't think anyone knows why the file requester appears.

Data x
That will do it. The file requester pops up when the program is compiled. If you drag the file requester somewhere you will see the message "Compiling Blitz Basic Program..." and a progress bar.

Yeah I did notice the compiling bar when the program closed with an error. But I'm glad I'm not the only one.

I did straighten out my data statements, and everything works fine now.

Thanks Floyd.
