#39 File Open is hanging


File Open does work in 3.3.4.
In 3.7.7 File Open does no longer work. It happens
with both Python 2.3 and 2.4, wxPython 2.4. and 2.5.
I do not use Non-Ascii-Characters in Path oder
Filenames. I use WinXP.

    Ion wxPython 2.4? I am pretty sure Bind was not introduced
    until 2.5.x, so drpython shouldn't even run on 2.5.

    Anyways, I cannot replicate this, so I need some more info:

    What version of 2.5?

    Is this with any file at all?

    Do you get a traceback?
    (Run drpython from cmd.exe, or from drpython 3.3.4.)

    What are your preferences? Could you post the
    preferences.dat file in your home/drpython directory? What
    plugins do you have installed?

    Does dragging a file onto drpython work? How about open recent?

    Thanks for your quick answer and the advice to run
    drpython 3.7.7 from 3.3.4. It's an good idea for everyone
    having problems after upgrading drpython.

    When doing this I get:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "C:\drpy\drpython-3.7.7\drpython.py", line 2682, in
    self.OpenFile(filename, False)
    File "C:/Dokumente und Einstellungen/Computer-
    Verwalter/drpython/plugins\KeyBoardMacros.py", line 253,
    in OpenMacroFile
    if utf8Detect(oof):
    NameError: global name 'utf8Detect' is not defined

    I have to admit, that I installed both KeyBoardMacro and
    3.7.7. So not 3.7.7 is the problem, but KeyBoardMacro.

    Deinstalling KeyBoardMacro helped to fix my problem.

    Ah, gotcha.

    I will post the traceback to the plugins forum, for Franz to
    take a look at (I believe this is his plugin).

    Glad to have helped (Now I can release 3.7.8 :)
