ExtMFD allows to open object selection dialog multiple times Issue Tools
issueid=945 04-19-2012 03:31 PM
ExtMFD allows to open object selection dialog multiple times
Pressing TGT or REF multiple times opens multiple dialogs

How to reproduce:
- Open ExtMFD
- Select e.g. the Orbit Instrument
- Press TGT button multiple times

- Affects ExtMFD and ExternMFD-derived classes
- MFDs in generic cockpit and virtual cockpits are not affected

- Can cause Orbiter to crash. Looks like it's corrupting memory then ...

Suggested Workaround:
- Catch button events (e.g. from the dialog) and inhibit calls to ExternMFD:rocessButton at the right time. (Not tried yet.)

This bug has been reported frequently by people who are using my plugins. I finally figured out, that this must be an Orbiter bug.

I can reproduce this problem with 2010-P1, but not with the current beta (SVN r.35), so I suspect I must have fixed this independently somewhere along the line.

I'm closing this issue, but let me know if you can reproduce it in the beta.
