Version 8 will not save or deploy

I cant get my project to save / deploy.

On inspection of the log I notice that its looking for for a file(s) of a control(s) that I deleted in the project. Is there a way I can rebuild this cache so I can save or any other solution.

Many Thanks

Can you zip your project folder and send it to me directly so we can see what is going on?

Hi Rodney,

I’m seeing a number of odd things in the project.

  • There are references to a form named Hidden, but it’s not in the zip file.
  • There are references to a form named Form4. Also not in the zip file.
  • There’s a reference to a GridRow2 control - again, nowhere in the project.

Does this give any clues?

Hi George

I was in the process of delete unused forms (form4, hidden), removing and renaming controls when the problem arose.

Somehow the forms and the project itself have managed to get out of sync.


Here’s the fixed project folder.

You still have a naming problem to fix. You have a function called Image2CopyCopyCopy.onclick(). I have a hunch you renamed that control, but didn’t rename the function to match its new name. (420.2 KB)


Thanks George!
