#23 FormBuilder switch startup problems


When I 'Edit Configuration' and then select
the 'Plugins' Tab. In my
installation, the FormBuilder option is 'checked' to
be hidden by default.
If I un-check this value then follow the instructions
to restart guido to
affect the changes, I receive the following error
everytime the FormBuilder
Plugin configuration is not 'checked'...

Warning window titled 'Guido Error: Plugin Init Error'

"Initialization of plugin FormBuilder failed:
unknown or ambiguous option "HASH(0x293563c)": must
be -after, -anchor, -before, -expand, -fill, -in, -
ipadx, -ipady, -padx, -pady or -side
at :/perl/site/lib/Tk/Widget.pl line 1053. at
line 92"; It would appear the there is an invalid
hash being built for the pack options for the
FormBuilder (Noticable in the FormBuilder value in
the configuration page as a HASH(Value).

Using the 'Restart Guido' command on every attempt
after the above error occurs, results in...

Tk::Error: Can't call method "launch" on an undefined
value at
line 454.
(menu invoke)

The FormBuilder tab is hidden when the check box is
NOT selected. I believe this is functioning opposite
of what is intuitive.

    This was due to the FormBuilder being coded to not provide a
    GUI at all. I have worked out a method of indicating this
    fact to the IDE, and the "hidden" checkbox is now disabled
    when editing the configuration. I would prefer it to be
    greyed out, but I'm having trouble getting that to work in
    the Tk code. Perhaps later...
