I've seen this when you try too display much data in an answer(or ask). You
can usually get out of it if you key a "Return"(or two-tree). At that point
save and restart IDE(not usually necessary but "the ctrl S"s get more
frequent for sure). I did not report this because I was displaying an
obscene amount of data by mistake. You might have reached my afore mentioned
"obscene amount of data" in an answer dialog.

Subject: LC902 and LC901 Crash with Answer


anyone had this before? with LC902 community on win10 64bits

When i put 25 variables into a variable like this:

put "id=" & tId & "&name=" & tN & "&address=" & tA ......and so on....into

half of the variables are ---> encrypted--->base64encoded--->URLencoded


answer varSendData ----just to check if it is correct what i post to my php

LC902 crashes, it's just unresponsive and have to close it via taskmanager

Now i did not see this before and it always worked.

So deleted preferences file, no luck

downloaded LC901, same issue

If i uncomment the answer then it works as expected

all other answer commands in the script work normally.

So is there a limit to what can be shown by the answer command or are the
encoded elements the cullprit?

I know with normal text you can show a lot.

thanks Sphere(Jerry)
