Lately I received a few reports that DataDigger would not compile using the new strict compile settings in 11.7. That did not surprise me at all, because I never focussed on that so there might have been a few abbreviated keywords lingering around.
And indeed there were quite a few. Around 100 to be more specific. Of that number only a handful were due to my coding, but the majority came from the UIB that generates code with abbreviated keywords.
Since I expected that this would be fixed in 11.7 in the UIB, I opened up the DataDigger main window in the UIB and saved it again, but nothing changed. So I created a new blank window and inspected it afterwards. To my surprise I found this :
Note the red marks in the gutter. The error that is reported is:
Cannot reference “VARIABLE” as “VAR” due to the
“require-full-keywords” compiler option. (18494)
Sounds like a bug to me, but bottom line is that you cannot use the strict compiler options in combination with DataDigger. Until it is fixed, that is.
Update: I logged a question on the PSDN community page which got picked up. It appears to be a bug indeed.
All coders welcome
Level up every day
