Conditions for the variable question

Postby AriSilva » March 7th, 2018, 6:12 pm

Hi folks,
I had to change some variable names in the dictionary, and one of them was used in setting the conditions for the variable questions.
CSEntry does not check the condition expression at compile time, but when executing the program we get several messages saying the condition is wrong or invalid condition, something like that.

(maybe this should be posted as a new desirable feature)

The CAPI condition handling is a little-used feature, so not as many development resources went into as should have been, which is why you can run into issues like the one you describe.

We've been planning to overhaul that whole system, moving it to HTML text, which is why we've put off improving the system, as it will completely change. Hopefully we'll get to that overhaul soon.
