crash when using "setelem" to set graph characteristics

Postby jbonanca » Tue Oct 24, 2017 6:43 am

Hi, I think the last build (or maybe the one before that) introduced a problem with this. I'm using EViews 10+ (64 bit) on Windows 10 and when I use the following from a program or the command pane, Eviews crashes:

graphname.setelem(1) symbol(1) symsize(2)

Had no problem with this until recently; now it reliably crashes on multiple machines.

Hi,

I have a related issue (also using EViews 10+).

I get an error when trying to change symbol size, using the command symsize(arg). Previously (in EViews 9) I had no problems specifying the argument as a number, but now I get an error message that says:

Illegal graph symbol 5 in "DO_XXX_AL_DIA.SETELEM(3) LPAT(DASH1) LINEWIDTH(0.60) SYMBOL(FILLEDCIRCLE) SYMSIZE(5)


It works when specifying "XL" as the argument instead of 5.

Regards,
Nils
