Bug ID: 116945
Summary: Absolute icon references modified during runtime
Version: 188.8.131.52 release
Hardware: x86-64 (AMD64)
OS: Linux (All)
The component I was using when I first saw this bug was Base. I inserted a
pushbutton control into a form and modified the graphics property (in the
control property dialog box) to be an absolute path reference to a png icon
file. The graphic was displayed properly in the button at the time, and I
saved the database document as an odb file. I then invoked that odb file via a
symbolic link in my Desktop folder (which is different than the folder the
actual odb file is stored in) and the icon does not appear on the button.
Upon investigation, I found that the path name that I had entered for the icon
had been modified based on whether I invoked the database from the original odb
file or the symbolic link pointing to that file.
Actual path to icon file:
Actual path to odb file
Path to link to odb:
Path entered in the control dialog box for graphic:
(this path is reported any time database is opened from the actual file)
Path reported in control dialog box for graphic when opened from link:
This transformation of path is reproducible. Any time the database is opened
from the actual database odb file, the correct pathname is used and the
graphics appear properly. Any time the database is opened from the link on the
desktop, the reduplication of the Projects element occurs and the graphics do
I have discovered a work-around that works in this particular case, but is
untested in any other case. If I enter the path for the icon as
~/Projects/kitchen/icon.png, the problem does not occur, and the database opens
properly from either the actual odb file or the symbolic link referencing it.
