I have closed the program, done everything I can think of and can't get the Object Inspector to display anything.

And I have no idea what I did to get in this position. This is a huge program by standards.

Screen Shot attached.
Appreciate the help.

No F11 will bring it up but if you look at the screen shot the Object Inspector is blank.

I started a new project and it's the same. The Object Inspector has no information in it.

Did your Lazarus IDE go into a REBUILD mode recently ?

its possible one of your IDE files got modified but I can't be sure about that unless some configuration files got corrupted.

First select a component or a form in the designer. Then Object Inspector will show its properties.

That's a good point.

  I've had cases where the forms disappear and the inspector is empty. I need to go to Projects:Forms and then click on the form I want to see.

Hi!

If nothing helps:

* Close Lazarus

* Edit the file [user]/.lazarus/environmentoptions.xml
* Search for <ObjectInspectorDlg>

Change the values for visibiliy:

Set visibility to True
Set  left/top/width/height to reasonable values.

Close the editor and start Lazarus again.

I think that In this case that's not very useful, since the problem seems to be not that the OI doesn't appear but that it remains empty (as happens, for example, for a console application).

But I don't know why that might be happening to the OP, unless there is no control/form selected/open?

If you'r project has no forms (like in "simple program") the object inspector will look like that.
There's no form active in that screenshot - so what happens if you start a new project?

And on top - your object inspector is in "Favorites"-tab - what's in "Properties"?

No I don't think so.

I didn't rebuild anything.

I got it back to normal.

1. opened a new project.
2. Closed the new project without saving.
3. Opened the original project. No change.
4. Went to bed.
5. Opened the project this morning and it looks fine.

Must have been going to bed. Wonder if a nap would have worked. I was thinking this  morning I would have to reload Lazarus.

Rebuilding has nothing to do with this. Object Inspector goes hand in hand with the form designer. When you have a component selected in the designer, Object Inspector will show its properties.
