FXRuby - textedit.rb example crash problem


#1

Dear all,

I am writing a GUI. I need some bigger subfield with an editor in
it. So I tried to incorporate the textedit.rb example
(FXRuby-1.6.0,fox-1.4.33,Ruby 1.8.4).
But when I enter text in it and use a backspace to
correct some typo, the program immediately stops
with error: FXRbText::extractText : bad argument (in Redhat Linux),
if I use it under Cygwin(Windows XP), it crashes after entering the
first
letter into the editor window (see error file below).
What’s wrong here ?
Is there any other ready-made editor available that doesn’t use
these functions (they seem to be part of FXRuby) ?

Thank you,

Axel

FXRuby 1.6 requires FOX 1.6.5 or later and won’t work with FOX 1.4.33.
I’m a little curious about how you managed to compile FXRuby-1.6.0
against fox-1.4.33 in the first place…

Not sure, but it sounds like something you might want to file a bug
report about:

http://rubyforge.org/tracker/?atid=1223&group_id=300&func=browse

For the time being, I’d recommend backing off to FXRuby 1.4, which is
the stable release of FXRuby.
