View Full Version : Getting LWITEMINFO in an itemMotion plugin

06-03-2008, 12:34 AM
I'm writing an itemMotion plugin.
I'm having problems with:

static LWItemInfo *iteminfo = NULL;

static int Handler (.....)

iteminfo always seems to be zero.
I've tried it in the Handler and in the Create routines but I always get zero.

This is probably something stupid but I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.
Any suggestions?

oh . . . . LW9.2

OK testing 9.2 and it also fails.
Tested in LW9.5 and it works.

This must be a bug that was fixed.

You're not trying to use a plugin compiled with the 9.5 LWSDK in 9.2 are you? That won't work as the plugin would ask LW for a newer version of the global than can be provided.

Sounds logical - I'll check when I get home.
But I wonder why the other globals don't have that problem?

It depends on whether or not the version number for the particular global was increased. A new version of LW does not automatically mean a new version for the globals.

Thanks Jarno.

That was the problem.... copying project data from one directory to another.
the wrong Server reference was brought across.
