Bug Fixes

The following bugs have been fixed:

  • (ID1064): Zoom: The upper left corner of a document page could only be accessed when in full page mode.

  • (ID1065): 3D-Dataset: If the option “In a Box” and “Fit to Gradient” was selected for isoline labels, the box was not completely visible.

  • (ID1066): NC-Browser: If the column width in a data grid was wider than the default width, the selected column was occasionally not moved into the view.

  • (ID1067) Registry: In version 5 UniPlot, uses the registry key “UniPlot5” to avoid conflicts with UniPlot 4. By accident some settings (i.e. the toolbar settings, the recent file list or the settings of the NC Browser) were still written to the key “UniPlot”.

  • (ID1069) Table-Object: If a number format was set for an empty cell, the value 0.0 was displayed in the cell.

  • (ID1071) ASAM-ODS-Browser 4: If the ASAM structure contains elements of type AoSubTest, the structure could not be displayed.

  • (ID1072) XYZCreate: Non square matrices could not be processed. When checking the rows (rvY) and columns (rvX), x and y were mismatched.

  • (ID1073) 1D-, 2D-, 3D-Datasets: During data exchanges, the info text and the legend text were not updated. They still displayed the old data data source and channel names.

    XYZCopyConfig(hSrc, hDest, bCopyMap)

    If bCopyMap is FALSE (0), the legend text and the info text is not copied.

  • (ID1079) The EdGetSelectedText function for the Text-Editor and the Rich-Text-Editor returned only the first character. This bug only occurred in UniPlot 5.0.0.

  • (ID1080) If an error message contained a percent sign (%), the error message was displayed incorrectly.


    def test()
        a = "Hello";
        MessageBoxInfo("Test %s", a[1], a[2])
  • (ID1084): DT_Format does not format values smaller than 2 correctly if "%c" is specified. This bug is caused by an error in msvcrt80.dll. It will be fixed in one of the next updates.

  • (ID1085) Excel-Sheet names, containing an @ character were not displayed the sheet selection dialog box.

  • (ID1086) poly_is_point_in_polygon returned incorrect results.
