TS1912: RADE Crashes When Locked Icons Are Selected


The Problem

Helix RADE crashes when trying to open a collection or relation window if all of the following conditions are true:

  • One and only one icon is selected
  • That icon is locked
  • The collection (or relation) window is in List Mode (view by name or view by kind)
  • The window was last used in Edit Mode (The toggle button at the top of the list has an A in it.)

If all of these conditions are true, Helix will crash when you try to open this window.

You can also crash Helix by selecting the locked icon and then clicking on the Edit/Fast Find button to toggle modes.

The Solution

Be sure that you do not leave a locked icon as the only one selected when closing its parent window.

Alternatively: Update to Helix RADE 6.1 which addresses this issue. (A special version of Helix RADE — dubbed 6.0.2 — is available upon request.)


This information applies to all versions of Helix RADE from 4.5.3 to 6.0.1(064).


This bug is resolved in Helix RADE 6.1.
