Dominic,

My point, of course, is that the x and y values for total black (Y = 0) are meaningless. There is no color at total black and the equations for x,y at that point will blow up. Use any non-zero value to overcome this. I'm sure that zoyd will make the appropriate modification to alleviate the situation.

Thanks Larry. I wasn't concerned about the -99999 values, since they are meaningless as you say. However, when these numbers show up, any subsequent entry (valid or not) will erase the entire row of Y Target values. That was the "quirk" I was reporting. 0 is a valid value for Y and should not cause the software to misbehave.

To fix something I need to be able to reproduce it, so if you could give me step by step instructions on how to cause the crash I can take a look.

On my system the error can be reproduced quite readily:

1. Delete (or rename) the ColorHCFR.ini file to start "clean"
2. Start the program
3. Start a new measurement, accepting all defaults (internal generator, simulated sensor)
4. Do NOT select any column, just click on the Continuous Measures icon.
5. After about 20 seconds, the error message "Encountered an improper argement" would pop up.

Exiting the program from that point will still leave the Test Colors window running.

Interestingly, if I take one set of measurements properly and then start a second measurement sheet without exiting the program, the error will not occur.

Ok, reproduced. This happens only with a real meter (simulated is ok) and only when you try to do continuous measures without first selecting a column or running one of the sweeps. I'll upload a fixed version. In the meantime you will need to select a color or sweep to measure prior to running continuous measures.

So I've uploaded a new 3.2.1 version with the following changes:
  • Fixed crash when user does nothing other than run free measures on startup
  • Fixed manual entry of 0 values (forced to very small number)
  • Constructed a better Granger rainbow image
  • Added some additional patterns including the evaluation sequence using Casino Royale discussed here

Besides gaming, this is the only thing that excites me about software updates. Thanks Zoyd.
