Unable to create Carbon widget for edSearch: TEdit!
« on: July 25, 2013, 05:56:18 pm »
Hi,

I'm trying to use Transmission Remote (https://code.google.com/p/transmisson-remote-gui/) on a mac, and at launch I get this error:

TCarbonEdit.CreateWidget Error: CreateEditUniCodeTextControl  failed with result -8791
[FORMS.PP] ExceptionOccurred
Sender=Exception
Exception=Unable to create Carbon widget for edSearch: TEdit!


And the app won't start.

I'm afraid that it could be *any* app coded with carbon and lazarus that could give me this kind of error. I've searched the whole internet for an answer but w/o luck!

Has anyone any idea what this means ? I'm on Mountain Lion and this is a (relatively) fresh install. The app worked once and a week later it didn't launch anymore. I'm wondering if there's an issue with my Carbon framework, or if there's something I'm missing... I truely don't know what to do but know this is not normal... Help pliz!!

PS: I am not the maintainer of the app, and it seems to work well for other people

Were you unsuccessful in applying the solution posted at http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,21444.msg126243.html#msg126243 ?
function GetRandomNumber: integer; // xkcd.com
begin
  GetRandomNumber := 4; // chosen by fair dice roll. Guaranteed to be random.
end;
