    The device IDE will completely crash when you try to type two or more dots in a row. Only killing the task could stop it.

    Can you give more detail on how to demonstrate this problem. I can't reproduce it on either my Axim X30 (WM2003) or my HTC Diamond (WM6.1).

    It invariably happens if I type Label.Text="Loading..."

    I tried your example on my Qtek9090, without any problem ?!
    Are you shure that it's
    Label.Text="Loading..."
    and not
    Labe1.Text="Loading..."
    After having typed the dot after Label. do you get the popup menu with the parameter list ?
    If no, that means that the name of your Label Control is wrong ?

    Best regards.

    Just an example. In my case, it's LblLoading.Text="Loading..." and it bugs at the second dot after "Loading"

    This works with other labels too.

    Not on either of my devices I'm afraid :confused:

    Well I got that on both my Touch and my Diamond (and maybe my TyTN, I don't remember)

    One of my devices is a Diamond. Have you an sbp file that exhibits the problem when you type into it that you can post so I can try it on my Diamond in case the behaviour is dependant on something else in the code?

    Device and Desktop IDE:

    Textbox1.Text="port open"

    When I place a full stop between n and " I get a pop up list.
    How strange . . . .

    Try it :confused:

    Are you sure you don't have a control called "open"? It didn't happen for me until I named a control "open" then I got the popup. The autocomplete seems not very (at all!) context sensitive.

    Yes, I have a button called open. Which sort of explains it.

    ="open" doesn't show the pop up
    =" open" does.

    Sort of a bug, but just something I found whilst trying to
    reproduce the ... bug. :)

    Probably not really a bug. I guess that the autocomplete needs whitespace at the beginning of a word and double quotes doesn't count as whitespace and so doesn't match "open".

    Hi, have you an object named "Loading"? Maybe that the DOT after "Loading" try to run a function in the paramettre .Text of Label named "Label"...
    Can you Upload your SBP File?

    The last post in that thread was over two years ago.
    I'm sure the OP has sorted it by now, but thank you for your help :)

    The ... bug is still lurking

    Device:HTC Gene (p3400i), WM6.1 fresh install, Basic4ppc 6.9

    Typing two consecutive dots in any place in code hangs the device, the moment second dot is typed.

    I'm unable to reproduce this bug and I use '...' in my status messages all over my code.

    Cheers,
