Re: Missing function or incorrect function reference

I suppose the SetWindowPointer() function initially was named NewSetPointer() to be distinguishable from the old SetPointer() function. Most probably that old function name was left in the Autodoc even after the name change.

I just fixed that typo.

Re: Devices which are Expunged but don't leave...

The latest SDK should include the "Expunge" tool to specifically expunge single libraries/devices (i.e. "Expunge my.device") or multiple libraries/devices matching a pattern (i.e. "Expunge my_#?.device" to expunge "my_first.device" and "my_second.device") from memory. Apart from that you should obey...

Re: Semaphore

Our semaphores more or less match what other system call a "mutex", i.e. something that can be obtained once only. In contrast to a mutex the semaphore of other systems can be obtained up to n times in parallel, but the n+1 accessor will be blocked until one of the first n releases the semaphore aga...

Re: Serbian locale

@vox Several projects can be translated on Transifex . Just get a login in there. After that you can be assigned as serbian translator for all projects, i.e. MUI, YAM, various 3rd party MUI classes. Translations can either be done online or offline. Online translations require a decent browser, but ...

Re: Troubles in Commodity-land

but I can't really be bothered to argue about it and the bugtracker won't let me add to or re-open the bug anyway. Did you try to login? Your account is approved. As such you are able to comment and to reopen tickets. But that requires a successfull login. Otherwise everything is forbidden or at le...

Re: System clock bug (crash)

I keep a digital clock (Sys:Utilities/Clock) on my Workbench toolbar and just discovered that if I turn off compositing in GUI prefs, the clock crashes when Workbench attempts to close and reopen. No offence, but a simple bug report like "it crashes" is worth nothing. It is even more worthless with...

Re: Serious low memory handler bug (freeze)

@xenic I really must second gazelle here. Your lowmemory handler simply assumes that the MEMHF_RECYCLE flag is definitely set at some time. This might sound logical on the first sight, but there is no guarantee that your handler is really called a second time. If the memory allocation succeeded afte...

Re: Serious low memory handler bug (freeze)

While working on the low memory handler in Dopus5, I discovered a fatal bug in OS4. If a low memory handler returns MEM_TRY_AGAIN then the system will fail and freeze. I've written this test program to demonstrate the freeze: There is no bug in OS4, but in your code and you get exactly what you are...

Re: MUI Themes for MUI4 and Context Menus Preference

MUI4 for AmigaOS offers exactly the same set of features as MUI4 for MorphOS. As such you can easily switch between all available themes by selecting them from the "Settings" popup menu. Actually, they are not the same. I've painted MUI4 themes for both platforms and they are similar, but not the s...

Re: MUI Themes for MUI4 and Context Menus Preference

For anything MUI related you should use their web site at http://muidev.de/ MUI is a 3rd party contribution and the developers prefer that you use their web site for any communications. Thanks Ssolie :) Will try that :) There is nothing to be done from our side. MUI4 for AmigaOS offers exactly the ...
