AV when rep.explorer is not modal

edited September 2002 in End User
Hi,

I need the reportexplorer form not to be modal.
But closing the "mainform" before the reportexplorer form will cause an AV.

I tried to close the rep.expl. form in the destructor of the "mainform"
through the
reportexplorer.close method, but this also gives a AV.

destructor TfrmRbExplorer.Destroy;
begin
ReportExplorer.Close;
inherited;
end;

Is there a solution for this problem ?

TIA,

Best regards,
Nico.

    Hi,

    The patch of thread "Report explorer bug in 6.03" causes this AV.

    All you need to do is close the main form. When you do this, the report
    explorer should close. You don't have to call close on the report explorer
    in the destructor of the main form. You can use the form's OnClose event if
    you want to perform actions on controls before they are freed when the main
    form closes.

    Hi Jim,



    This gives an AV when the patch is used.

    In the form's OnClose event, you can call ReportExplorer.Close. This should
    workaround the problem. I ran the same test in RB 7 and it doesn't show any
    problems. You can upgrade to RB 7 for Delphi 6 as the other option. Contact
    info@digital-metaphors.com with your registration info if you would like to
