Can anyone tell me how libraries work with Forms. I understand what a library is but am having trouble with different forms using the library. If I change a library, do I have to remove and add it for each form I use after the change to the library?

Hi,

Your question is that if you change the library then ofcourse you have to attach the new copy of your library. Library is very much same like you packages in PL.

You have to add the library in each form where u have used it.

That can't be. You mean if I have 125 forms in an application and I make one change to a library that all forms use such as a message library, then I have to "check out" and remove and re-add the library to each form? There has got to be an easier way.

Hello

U dont have to re-attach a library , if u have not changed number of formal parameters (their datatypes and all) all as during runtime fmx firsts look for plx and thus no need to recompile ur fmbs ..
Hope this helps

There is one serious proviso that the last poster missed. If you delete a procedure or function from a library (other than the last one) or insert a procedure or function (other than at the end ALPHABETICALLY) you DO need to recompile all the forms that use the library. The library contains a list made up of a 'number' and the function or procedure 'name'. The 'fmx' uses the 'number' not the 'name' therefore if you add or remove library functions or procedures then the 'new' 'plx' may have a different 'number'/'name' list to the one that was used when the 'fmx' was created.
