Error drawing authors
Oct 5th, 2015 at 7:26am
 
Hi,
when I do a rescan when in Visual Micro Explorer or a Refresh when on the Manage Libraries tab I get a message box pop up twice with 'Error drawing authors' and an OK button.

What is wrong?

Hi,

Thanks for the post. I'm not sure what would cause that. We should be seeing exactly the same library list so the issue should be the same for me.

Which tab is selected when you click re-scan?
Which Visual Studio Ide are you using?
Which Arduino Ide version are you using?

Thanks

Thanks for the info.

There have been some big changes in the arduino 1.6 range

What is the exact version shown in the title bar of the ide?

Thanks

Arduino 1.6
If it really is to do with Authors then expanding the Authors tree the first entry is blank i.e.

Authors (124)
|
----
|
+ - Adafruit (114)
|
+ - Adafruit (3)
etc.....

Thanks for the info.

The latest release of Arduino should show 1.6.5 so it might be that your older version of Arduino has some early versions of the new library format specification which arduino have matured since 1.6.0

Hi,
I just checked and my Arduino is 1.6.5-r5 - 2015.08.28.
To make sure there wasn't something odd I re-downloaded and re-installed. The IDE title bar still shows Arduino 1.6 and a rescan still shows the authors error message.

Hi,
ok I found the problem with the Authors message.
I had a library with the library.properties file with a blank entry for author, i.e.
author=

It would be useful if vm either ignored this or better still flagged it up as a library with an empty author string.

I still only have Arduino 1.6 in the Ide combo box though...

Hi,

Thanks I will look at the empty authors string.

For you information...

Arduino have never produced a 1.6 Ide, they produce only 1.6.0, 1.6.1, 1.6.2, 1.6.3 etc

Okay that's just the visual micro name for the type of ide. The Arduino ide version number is shown in the title bar of the Arduino Ide after running arduino.exe

Thanks
