Crash upon cancellation of VEC VAR (E11)

Postby Massey_TJ » Mon Aug 19, 2019 4:14 pm

Eviews team,

Eviews 11

Steps to recreate:
Quick > Estimate VAR > Set VAR type = Vector Error Correction > hit 'OK' without entering in any variables, prompts error message, VAR specification window automatically reloads > Hit Okay or Cancel > Crash

Comments
VEC is the only VAR specification whereby if you make an error in the specification window it reloads the specification window after the error message - probably something to do with the crash.

The reloading of the specification window after user error is actually a really nice feature. Numerous times now I've made a human error in the VAR specification window, leading to an error window that triggers automatic closure of the specification window, meaning that I have to start all over again (with my naive GUI user hat on).

A small bug, and something small that bugs me!

Thanks,
Tom

I've just posted a fix for this bug. I've also taken the opportunity to add a bit of additional limited early error checking for some specification errors so that the dialog with be reentrant. The fix will appear in the next patch.

Thanks again for your patience.
