ViewletBuilder changes the name of my file

Postby Tim » Thu May 10, 2007 10:41 am

After installing 4.5.11 something unusual is happening. My qvp file is
named AASE2 3-Create ECR.qvp and the same name in front of the period is put
in the Viewlet title in the Properties dialog field. But the name on the
folder that is generated is AASE23~1. That same name is on the files inside
that folder. Why are the names being changed to something I don't want?

I have discovered the problem. When I finish working on one file then
open another w/o closing the previous one the compile properties of the
new file I open do not overwrite the properties of the file that I was
previously working on. Therefore, the work around is to close VB after

I don't think that this is necessarily a ViewletBuilder problem -- you appear to have spaces in your file name.

This is not a good practice; spaces are often used as delimiters for commands and names. This can confuse Windows, and often does.

I know it works some of the time, maybe even most of the time, but spaces in filenames, and especially directory names can cause unpredictable, flaky errors and results like what you are seeing.

Try naming your file AASE_3-Create_ECR.qvp or AASE3-CreateECR.qvp

If that concatenates, then Qarbon is doing something they shouldn't, but I have lots of long filenames without spaces, and they work OK, so you should be OK too.
