Error description

  • I was able to recreate this issue as well. Below is the scenario
    in which the customer came across this.
    
    He created a DXL script that will create a module with
    particular attributes and views in it. Some of those views have
    sorts in it.
    
    Here's how it went. He ran the script and it created the module.
    He then opened the module to verify that the attributes and
    views were created correctly. Note that at this time no data is
    in the module. He then went to check the sort setting by going
    to Tools -? Sort and that is when he received the DXL error (See
    attached). Also note that the Sort dialog box could NOT be
    closed no matter what, even after closing the module. The only
    way to get rid of the Sort dialog box was to close DOORS.
    
    To see for yourself, create a module and go to Tools?Sort.
