Sometimes when changing a name after a menu has been created it doesn't update in the preview or tree view the way you would expect. Let's say I make a menu called display Items and I forget to capitalize the "d" in display, if I go back and edit it to a capital "D" sometimes the tree view and preview show "isplay Menu" when the name in the form for the new item shows "Display Menu". Weird bug. Can't get it to replicate all of the time and sometimes I can fix it by just deleting the whole entry box and retyping the whole name.

Okay here is a very specific example: If you have the number 1 in your menu name it seems you have to edit past the number in order for the changes to reflect. There are other odd cases too but I'm having a hard time replicating them reliably.

Please could you look in .tcmenu under your home directory for logs
~/.tcMenu
and send me the log file for one such run. I cannot recreate this locally after a bit of trying, and I'm thinking there's a strange exception or similar.

If you don't want to publicly post the log, feel free to PM me.

Many thanks,
Dave.

This is installed in windows 10. Where should I look to find the logs and what will they be named?

Also maybe there is a conflict between the java versions of the controller and the designer programs. I can only use one at a time and have to reinstall if I want to use the other. Each time it asks me to update my java to a different version and then the other program won't work. I installed designer first and when I installed controller I could no longer open designer so I reinstalled designer and I could no longer open controller. Maybe that broke something.

The logs should be in your home directory. Normally that’s just /Users/YourUserName on Windows.

Within there you should see a directory called .tcMenu and it will contain a series of log files. Just pick up the most recent after you’ve recreated the problem.

The conflict between the designer and controller should be fixed in 1.3.1 that I’ve just released today. I found it myself earlier. It was caused by both installers using the same UUID. Just uninstall both before installing 1.3.1 and all should be good.

Using the 1.3.1 designer with the new libraries breaks my project on the esp32. It doesn't seem to matter if I build for SAMD or ESP8266. I'm working on getting a log now.

So this is what seems to correspond to what you are looking for. If I type something after a 1 it updates. If I delete the 1 and then just type a 1 I have to type something else after it, a "0" in this case to get it to show up.
So think of it like this:

1. I have an item named "1Light 1".
2. I backspace the first "1" so it looks like "Light 1".
3. I type "1" and only the entry field updates everything else still says "Light 1".
4. I type "0" after the "1" and everything updates and says "10Light 1".
5. I backspace the "0" and only the field updates to "1Light 1". Everything else looks like "10Light 1".
6. I backspace the "1" and everything updates to "Light 1".
7. I write "1" once more to try to get to my original "1Light 1" but it only shows up in the field everything else says "Light 1"

Ok, there’s no exceptions in that log. I’ll have to try and create some larger structures of about 150 items and see if I can recreate.

Could you also send me the Arduino compiler output where it fails for ESP32. I don’t have an ESP32 board to hand at the moment to test it with. Given they seem to be less than £5 I’ll get one from somewhere and make sure it works along with ESP8266.

Please Revert to 1.3 for now until I can get hold of an ESP32 board to test with. Just downgrade the UI and then manually copy the libraries from 1.3 back over using the standalone zip that’s in the 1.3 release. This will keep you going for now. Sorry it’s not better news.

Thanks for the info. I reverted a while ago so I could keep working on my project. I'll try to make a copy of my progress and try the new libraries again in the morning.

Sorry I haven't tested the new version again yet. I was having other issues with my program and I want to get it right before I accuse the library. All I know is it kind of worked and after upgrading it didn't work at all anymore. I've fixed some bugs with my software so I'm going to try again here soon.

I think I found the issue behind the menu name not updating. It should be fixed in 1.3.2.
