We have a very large application written and working for UPP 2007.

We've upgraded to upp-x11-src-1805. This required a few code
changes to the application and now most everything is working
again.

One exception is the use of the Layout Designer.
The .lay files that originated from UPP 2007 can be edited by
the newer IDE, but it causes build errors. It complains that
functions associated with various Widgets are not available.
The ordering of parameter setting changes in the .lay file
after editing.

So, we are not able to edit any .lay file without causing
build errors.

Have you heard of this problem when migrating a UPP application
to the newer IDE from circa 2007 UPP?

Any suggestions on what might be done to fix this issue?

regards,
Jeff Franks

Would it be possible to at least post broken .lay file here? I understand that some code might be closed source, but without a little sample, it is hard to say what went wrong...

(And yes, over these years, I might have hit this issue here or there, but most were easy to solve.)

Yes, I can provide an example . . . exhibit_a

It has the before and after .lay file example and a screen capture of the error produced during compile using the IDE.

Thank you very much for responding to our inquiry.

Thanks, identified a bug in CtrlLib.usc files, now fixed. (SetFrame was placed wrongly at the start of modifiers list).

Mirek,

Thank you for chasing this down.

I have used the latest UPP library and it has fixed the issue.
