Error XS9078 All elements of a string concatenation must be of type 'string'. El

Post by ic2 »

Another error, this worked as well last year:

Error XS9078 All elements of a string concatenation must be of type 'string'. Element 2 is of type 'dword'

LogEvents("IC2WebExchangeWCF2",0,Null_Object,"Length cText: "+slen(cText),0,"")

Slen is not a dword but a string. What is wrong here?

Hi Dick,
the SLen() function in VO and X# returns a dword, not a string.

Do you have redefined that funtion to return a string?

Hello Wolfgang,



That's fast!

You ae absolutely right. I think I have a few instances in m,y program where I incorrectly assumed the "S" converts the outcome to a string.

It used to work however, and that it doesn't anymore is not more than fair :)

Hi Dick,

Yes, that was a bug in the compiler, it was not reporting an error when adding a string to an int, word etc. This was fixed a few builds ago.
