Small bug with Glide XML parsing


I ran across an issue with the Glide designer where I would click the “Show XML” menu item and nothing happenned. At first I couldn’t reproduce it, but then I realized that since this is XML, it might not be legitimate for me to use “< Back” for the .Text of a Button.

Sure enough, that was it.

On the API side too - if you manually edited one of your windows to include a < or > you get an XML parser exception.

So looking back, that exception is expected - but the Glide designer fails silently. Just FYI…


Thanks for the information. Such characters will be replaced with their entity equivalent in the next release.

For now you can use “< Back” inside the Text attribute.
