Changes from string literal to null string not saved by PAC Control and ioControl string commands


Applies To:

PAC Control Professional
PAC Control Basic
ioControl Professional
ioControl Basic

Versions Affected:

Problem was discovered in version: R8.0a PAC Control, R5.1a ioControl
Problem is fixed in version: R8.1c PAC Control

Resolved In Version:

Problem is fixed in version: R8.1c PAC Control


Symptoms:

Attempting to change a PAC Control or ioControl string command that uses a string literal to an empty string does not retain the changes. It continues to display the original string.

Example: Use the Move String command to move a literal string “abc” to a string variable. Click OK to close the Add Instruction dialog window. With the command highlighted, click the Modify button, and modify the string to remove “abc.” An empty null string literal is in the From: parameter. Click OK, and the original string “abc” is still present in the Move String instruction.


Resolution:
