Error description

  • DOORS Client 9.6.1.x crash when displaying the warning message
    "changes made to the view will be lost" if a the View Name ends
    with a %
    
    How to reproduce:
    - make sure that the option "[Warn] When view changes are to be
    lost" is enabled ("Tools > Options..." / "Settings" tab)
    - create a view named "99%" for instance
    - modify the view (for instance change the size of a column)
    - swich to another view => the DOORS client crashes
    
    Note:
    - could reproduce this crash using DOORS clients 9.6.1, 9.6.1.6,
    9.6.1.8, 9.6.1.10
    - if the view is named "my 99% finished view" instead, then the
    DOORS client does not crash and the warning message  "changes
    made to the view will be lost" is displayed with the incorrect
    view name "my 99 0.000000inished view"
    
    Workaround:
    - disable the option "[Warn] When view changes are to be lost"
