Hi All!

There’s this little bug in the X++ editor that I find fairy annoying.
When you paste text at the beginning of a line, the first character get overwritten.

I demonstrate it in the next video:

Is it just me?

    Nope, not just you. The AX2009 editor does that and not only at the beginning of the method.
    When copy/pasting a block of code it will always delete a space from the line below the block copied….

    Definitly not. Crappy bug that you simply get used to.

    Not only to you, happens to me too!

    I found another bug in Editor.

    When you select a word for finding and press Ctrl-F, it appears in the textbox on Find and Replace form. Then, if you close that form, select another word and try to find it pressing again Ctrl-F, the previous word appears again in the Find form.

    I overcame it doing some changes on SysEditorSearch form, editor() method:

    // Due to a system bug, the search string is obtained from currentline() method
    editorString = substr(_editor.currentLine(), _editor.selectionStartCol(), _editor.selectionEndCol() – _editor.selectionStartCol());
    editorString = _editor.searchString();

    I have AX 2009 Rollup 4.
    I hope that can be helpful for you.

    The find issue also happens for me.

    Hi Daniel,

    Yes you are right, I have that bug to, nice find.

    Like you said, this solves the find issue:
    Rplace this: (form SysEditorSearch.editor() on line 16)

    editorString = _editor.searchString();

    with this:

    editorString = substr(_editor.currentLine(), _editor.selectionStartCol(), _editor.selectionEndCol() - _editor.selectionStartCol());
    editorString = _editor.searchString();

    Nice find!

    Hi Klaas!

    Where developers can submit the issues that they could find?
    Is there some official page for submitting? I couldn’t find it.

    Thanks in advanced!

    Hi Daniel,

    I guess you can log them where you normally log your issues:

    For parters: PartnerSource or MS Premier Online
    For customers: CustomerSource

    You could also ask your contact at Microsoft.

    There will be a new X++ editor in AX60, so some bugs will be solved that way.
