wxPGProp crash fix

Post by petah » Thu Nov 20, 2014 11:46 am

Hi Eran,

CL crashes on opening a project pref whose debugger entry can't be found, f.ex. when prefs had lldb stored, then are opened on a different PC where lldb isn't installed, wx ends up indexing an array with -1.

I'm pretty sure I saw similar crashes before when build configs across machines used different compiler names like "gcc49" vs "gcc-4.9" so I ended up patching wx, but recommend you use a wxProperty wrapper with an exception handler for release builds because wxproperty accessors return references.

Code: Select all

Thanks, I already fixed this in git master, simply by making sure that the correct index is passed to SetChoiceSelection
