I've got some fairly large OOP classes defined (which are subclasses of another). Sometime recently, I must have changed something, because now the variable editor/viewer ('openvar') shows blank when I try to open an object of one of these classes (even if I return just the default state of the object. i.e. X = myObj();)
What are the conditions that can cause this? I'm not getting any errors in the constructors, so I don't know where to start looking.
Please does anybody know anything about this? I don't have any idea how to find the part of the code that is responsible. Thanks. Dan
Update for anybody who may care... I opened a support case to get some help from TMW on this... While waiting I discovered that the culprit was a faulty line of code in a get method for a dependent variable. I don't know that this is the only possible cause of this symptom, but hopefully it gives somebody else a place to start looking.
This has come up a number of times on Answers. I am pretty sure the variable editor cannot handle custom classes. I would start with this question to see the history. Yair has "customizing the Variable (Array) Editor" on his blog's todo list. My guess is it involves a lot of undocumented java. A donation to his blog might move it up the list....
