Well Richard,

Did not mean to upset you. My native language is Dutch, and, I Don't Do Sarcasm, but Do do Self depreciation.

From what you wrote, I concluded that in your valued judgement, my Basic design is possibly right, but that I made a stupid mistake somewhere in the code base. I responded along these lines

From your response, I think that you think that I was sarcastic in my reply, I was not, I was genuine and tried to reflect on the fact that I am genuinely aware of my own fallibility, and need to start chasing down a stupid mistake I made, in stead of the whole concept being wobbly.

In my experience GDI debugging issues break down into a variety of issues. A first one is, expecting the GDI system to do things that it fundamentally can not. In that case, trying to debug is flogging a dead horse. The best thing there is often to start again, and salvage what you can.

Many bugs are what I call 'Stupid' ones. Hard to Find, but, when found, trivial to resolve. an == ipv an =, or viceversa, Missing or misplaced Brackets, calling a wrong but similarly named function, etc. Well I'm sure you've been there, and can add to the list. In short, things that compile right, but act differently than as intended by the author.

I was grateful that you condoned the model I had, and by extension suggested that I must have made a 'stupid mistake' somewhere. That is far better news than that 'Your Model is Wrong'.

I make 'Stupid mistakes' on a semi regular basis. (I try to avoid the habit for as much as I Can) I think Most Programmers do the same. That's what debugging is for.

Smile | :) Smile | :)
