This is interesting. When I do

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
   set the caseSensitive to "true"
   
   set the "X" of btn 1 to "upper"
   set the "x" of btn 1 to "lower"
end mouseUp
and then open the Property Inspector of btn 1, the value of both properties seem to appear as "lower".

However, doing:

Code: Select all

set the caseSensitive to true;put the X of btn 1
--> "upper"

Code: Select all

set the caseSensitive to true;put the x of btn 1
--> "lower"

So it looks like the property inspector has a bug and cannot differentiate between x and X.

In fact after deleting the "x" from the property inspector, the displayed value of "X" was immediately updated to "upper"!

Best,
Panos

Panos.

If you do spend time on this, please recreate the scenario I described above when setting the two props in the inspector itself. Mine simply deletes the second case in the middle of my trying to create it.

Hello Craig,

I confirm what you describe. This might be a bug in the tree view widget (which is used in this section of the Property Inspector), rather than a bug in the inspector itself.

I will file a bug in the weekend.

Thanks for spotting this.

Best,
Panos

Thank you for chiming back in Panos :D
Only a little playing around with this today, in the 6 and 7.x series, I had no problem creating custom props a and A in the property inspector, however, even with caseSensitive set to true, apparently changing one changed the other.

I also realized that I should probably have started the testing in the newer 8/9 x series :P but now I'm curious if this was always the case.
