    FMPA 10: group graphic + align = corrupt file?

    lhoong

      Summary

      FMPA 10: group graphic + align = corrupt file?

      Description of the issue

      Using FMPA 10v3 on Mac OS X 10.5.6, it appears that I get a corrupted file if I do the following:  1. Create new db in FMP....first field can be anything 2. enter layout mode 3. click on rect. tool - draw rect. or square 4. click on line tool - draw 2 lines on layout 5. select both lines and group 6. select grouped lines and select rect. on layout 7. align center and align middle 8. close db 9. recover the db just created Result: Recovery log indicates that the db is corrupted with alert not to continue using the file.  The log entries also indicate that the grouped object on the layout had to be rebuilt. Can anyone else replicate this?  Why would aligning grouped graphics, created using built-in tools, cause such a recovery result? It seems like a bug to me. Lee Hoong=================Binary Assist220 Gaines Oak WaySuwanee, GA 30024Voice: (678) 313-5604Internet: lhoong@binaryassist.comWebsite: www.binaryassist.comFileMaker 10 Certified Developer

             I was able to replicate this bug with Windows xp, sp3 on Fmp 10v3 advanced.

            Thanks for the confirmation, PhilModJunk.  Do you also have FMPA 9?  If you repeat the steps with FMPA 9 and do the recovery with FMPA 10, do you also get a similar alert for file corruption?  

             

            At this point, it's not entirely clear to me whether the corruption occurs while working in layout mode or during recovery or a combination of both.

              We don't really know if the file is corrupted at all. Only that the recover process reports it as corrupted.

               

              I made the jump from 5.5 to 10 so don't have any of the intermediate versions. Others will have to test and confirm that.

                Thank you for your post.

                 

                I was able to duplicate the problem on FileMaker Pro 10 Advanced on Mac OS X 10.5.8.  The recovered file looks fine.  I ran Recover again on the recovered file, and I also get the same error message.

                 

                I quit FileMaker Pro 10 Advanced and launched FileMaker Pro 9 Advanced.  Running Recover on the same file does NOT exhibit the problem.

                 

                I have forwarded the information to our Development and Software Quality Assurance (Testing) departments for review and confirmation.

                  I could reproduce this one as well.

                  For what it's worth, I compared the objects before and after the recovery with clip manager. The recovery did change the bounds of the Group Button object during recovery. 

                   

                  Before recovery:

                  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

                  <Layout

                   enclosingRectTop="61.792892" enclosingRectLeft="347.792877" enclosingRectBottom="160.000000" enclosingRectRight="451.207092">

                  <Object type="Rect" flags="0" portal="-1" rotation="0">

                  <DrawStyle linePat="2" lineWidth="1" lineColor="#0" fillPat="1" fillEffect="0" fillColor="#FFFFFF00"/>

                  </Object>

                  <Object type="Line" flags="12288" portal="-1" rotation="0">

                  <DrawStyle linePat="2" lineWidth="1" lineColor="#0" fillPat="1" fillEffect="0" fillColor="#FFFFFF00"/>

                  </Object>

                  </GroupButtonObj>

                  </Object>

                  </Layout> 

                   

                   After recovery:

                   <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

                  <Layout

                   enclosingRectTop="61.792892" enclosingRectLeft="347.792877" enclosingRectBottom="159.207092" enclosingRectRight="451.207092">

                  <DrawStyle linePat="2" lineWidth="1" lineColor="#0" fillPat="1" fillEffect="0" fillColor="#FFFFFF00"/>

                  </Object>

                  <Object type="GroupButton" flags="0" portal="-1" rotation="0">

                  <Bounds top=" 61.792892" left="347.792877" bottom="159.207092" right="451.207092"/>

                  <GroupButtonObj numOfObjs="4">

                  <Object type="Line" flags="8192" portal="-1" rotation="0">

                  <Bounds top=" 61.792892" left="347.792877" bottom="153.207092" right="349.207092"/>

                  <DrawStyle linePat="2" lineWidth="1" lineColor="#0" fillPat="1" fillEffect="0" fillColor="#FFFFFF00"/>

                  </Object>

                  <Object type="Line" flags="12288" portal="-1" rotation="0">

                  <Bounds top=" 61.792892" left="449.792908" bottom="159.207092" right="451.207092"/>

                  <DrawStyle linePat="2" lineWidth="1" lineColor="#0" fillPat="1" fillEffect="0" fillColor="#FFFFFF00"/>

                  </Object>

                  </GroupButtonObj>

                  </Object>

                  </Layout>

                   

                   In the recovered file the bounds are corrected to the bounds of the enclosed objects.

                      Curiously, if you ungroup the graphics after the alignment step before closing the file, recovery does NOT report any corruption.

                        That is correct.  The error reported is related to grouped objects.

                          This Recover Error Message "Rebuilt group with x object(s)" is very common.  I have "bad" groups all over my files

                           

                          Please add this info to the Knowledge Base

                           

                          it appears that this is an error of "low" severity

                                  Is this really a "bug" in the way FileMaker Client groups objects,   or a "bug" that Recover now reports it as an error?

                                   

                                  I have FileMaker 6 converted files, that show this error

                                   

                                  is it possible this has been a "problem" for a long time, and we just didn't know it?

                                   

                                  Thanks,
