Error description

  • If you have a DXL attribute which was originally created by
    converting layout DXL, attempts to correct #include file names
    will fail with the error "invalid dxl value for attribute
    '<attrName> of type 'Text'"
    
    To recreate:
    
     - create a layout DXL column with code such as "#include
    <myFile.inc>" where myFile.dxl is in a defined addins location.
     - convert the layout code using Tools;Support Tools;Convert
    Layout DXL to Attribute DXL"
     - rename myFile.inc
     - reopen the module and attempt to correct the attribute DXL
    code with the new file name (Edit; Attributes, then select the
    attribute, click <Edit>, <Browse> then <Current> then do the
    correction).
     - <OK> the Edit Attribute DXL window, then the Edit Attribute
    window
    
    To workaround (others may be available):
    
    Copy the attribute DXL to the clipboard
    In the Edit Attribute dialog untick the "DXL attribute" checkbox
    and tick the checkboxes for "Affect change bars", "Affect change
    dates" and "Generate history" then click <OK>
    Back in the same dialog re-tick the "DXL attribute" checkbox
    then assign the new, corrected DXL.
