GDL: glob_modpar_name - Arrays

Lingwisyer

Hi all,

 

I have 2 integer parameters, x and y which are each linked to the size of 9 other array parameters, 4 unique and 5 common. These common arrays only update if the modification of x or y is greater than the other, max(x ,y).

 

When I modify all 9 relevant arrays update. The issue is that when I modify y, it's relevant 8 arrays DO NOT update UNTIL you modify x... This though highly inconvenient is managable as you can follow up any changed to y with an increase to x before reverting it's value inorder to get everything to update. The major issue is that there is one array (sg_customBasePrefix) that does not update at all meaning that the object breaks if you increase y beyond the existing size of this array...

 

The current object can be found over at this thread.

Hi,

 

not sure if it helps, but maybe the confusion comes from using GLOB_MODPAR_NAME. That only contains the name of the parameter which the user modified manually. It doesn't react to PARAMETERS commands in the code.

I found the issue. I had two i where there should have been j... That was why that one parameter was not updating, and apparently the reason why the others where only updating when the other set of arrays were updated... maybe I should have used letters which did not look so similar... Another facepalm moment...
