AnchorDocking fails using Lazarus Trunk
« on: June 03, 2021, 01:25:16 am »
I did an install of 2.0.12 (FPC 3.2.0) and applied Lazarus SVN trunk to it. Now, when I try to install AnchorDocking the IDE fails to restart after building. There were no error when I compiled the run-time and design-time packages. After building the IDE, it restarts but hangs after displaying only a wireframe outline of the docked IDE.  Has to be killed using Task Manager.

I've tinkered with everything I can think of... to no avail. Any ideas?

Using Windows 8.1 64-bit, FPC 3.2.0, Lazarus trunk revision 65166.

Try to start Lazarus from commandline. Normal here are more infos. You can also use the the commandline switch --debug-log for more infos.

Thanks for the suggestion. Will try later today, and follow up as needed.

Not sure how to solve it. May have to bug report this one.

It's hard to believe no one else has used 2.0.12 with Lazarus trunk.

Hey dsiders,

I've had major issues with Anchor Docking and the generics implementation that comes with sparta.

Thanks for that... but I'm not using Sparta. The error is in the components/anchordocking package and its interaction with the IDE.

I did an install of 2.0.12 (FPC 3.2.0) and applied Lazarus SVN trunk to it.
Does it mean you copied trunk sources on top of 2.0.12 sources?
It is not a good idea although I don't know if it causes this particular problem. You should download trunk sources to a dedicated directory and build it with an installed FPC. Just run "make" from console. It works also on Windows, "make" binary is provided by FPC.
Mostly Lazarus trunk and FPC 3.2 on Manjaro Linux 64-bit.

I deleted all source directories, and checked out trunk. svn stat shows no issues. I used make clean bigide to rebuild. No errors there either.

No problems until I install anchordockingdsgn.lpk.

Well it's not you that I'm worried about.

Anchor Docking uses Sparta for the form docking. At least if you install it with the default settings.

So, Lazarus, not you, is using one of Sparta's IDE components when Anchor Docking is installed and that's why I've mentioned the generics.

But I do have to say that my issues popped up while compiling, so maybe you got a source version where the Sparta component issue is already solved.

I dunno, I just thought it would be a nice thing to mention in case it could be the culprit.

Gus

It's not Sparta. I've deleted all of the source in components/sparta directories, and both the run-time and design-time packages in components/anchordocking still compile. They just don't work after installation. They have no dependency on Sparta.

Hummm, that's news to me. Thanks for getting back with this. I was under the impression that Anchor Docking always depended on the Sparta stuff to anchor the form.
I need to re-evaluate my knowledge of this thanks to you!!

There's a new component to dock the form, but it's only available on trunk. I need to do another deep dive on this to refresh my knowledge.

Thanks, dsider, for doing the Sparta cleanup/test. I really appreciate you taking my suggestion even if it wasn't a solution at all.

Cheers,
Gus

martin_fr made a new component without need of the sparta components and they now deprecated for newer Lazarus. You can get information about the new component her in forum and the greman forum too. I have this installed for a lot of weeks and no problem. There is a package for 'older' versions of Lazarus too.

I have no problem, if i remove all depencied to sparta and install the new package.

This sentence is nonsense for me. I can use Lazarus 2.0.12 with fpc 3.2.0 OR Lazarus Trunk with fpc 3.2.0. A described before, mixing of Lazarus is a no-go.

If you remove an old version of Lazarus dont forget to remove all the objectfiles too. Sometimes i have found, a 'make clean' did not found all old files and this make confusion. Normal, if i change the svn path, i remove ALL and build all from ground up. In times of OPM (and fpcupdeluxe) i am as fast as searching for problems in the installation. 

With fpcupdeluxe + OPM i have always a running system and can test other combination without sideeffects.

Sparta is only required for the (old) Docked Form Editor. Anchor Docking itself never required it as it's way older.

It's Michl, not martin_fr who made that.

Hey PascalDragon,

Sparta is only required for the (old) Docked Form Editor. Anchor Docking itself never required it as it's way older.

Ahhh, that makes sense.
I guess that in my mind I made an incorrect association due to the fact that when I installed Anchor Docking, Sparta was involved.
But the fact that Anchor Docking and the Docked Form Editor are separate makes more sense.

Thanks PascalDragon, as always a trove of dis-ambiguity :)

And to be honest I've unhitched the forms in 2.0.12 and below but I'm using the new Docked Form Editor on trunk and it has behaved very well.
My main issue with the old one is the fact that it always entered in drag to select mode if I didn't do a long click on a component.
Maybe due to my computer being so crap, but it irritated me to no end...
Problem solved with the new version. If only I could figure out how to use that on 2.0.12 and below.

Cheers,
Gus
