the gear is under in the window itself.

#4  

I found a couple other controls where it seemed the gear icon is gone. I found them by clicking on the edge of the control's window and dragging it larger. Give it a try. Drag open up the size of the window until you find the gear then resize as needed so you see everything.

hi dave

i found them.they are under in the window itself.

#6  

Is this a double post? There is another thread with the same title where people are already commenting and have a couple issues.

#7  

Hi Nomad, What control or option are you talking about where you have trouble seeing the V in the checkbox?

When you say V are you talking about the little check mark image you see after you click on the box?

It would be nice to be able to change some more of the text options so we can use more background colors or have a way to make them stand out better. However till that happens try changing the Content Base Color to a lighter color to help stuff like this to show up better.

With the latest release, I cannot save the dimensions of my Mobile Interface. They keep changing to 834x663px instead of 800x480px. Hence the display on my tablet is distorted. Can you advise what might be happening here?

How do you do any of this? what is a  pnlControl?

The pnlControl has been removed. This means you'll have to edit the designer.cs file for your forms and remove the pnlControl references to use this. For example...

Change: this.pnlControl.Controls.Add(something); To: this.Controls.Add(something);

Further issues with the new release as follows:

Audio is played back at higher speed. Cannot change it. Tried deleting everything on soundboardPC and adding it again. No change. My Mobile App will not save to EZ-Cloud nor will servo Profile. Basically I can no longer use this software. Any ideas?

Here is error message...

Version: 2019.12.06.00

System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: Server was unable to process request. ---> Could not find file 'C:\Raid\Webs\EZ-Robot Uploads\EZ-Cloud-ServoProfile\2724.jpg'. at System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol.ReadResponse(SoapClientMessage message, WebResponse response, Stream responseStream, Boolean asyncCall) at System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol.InvokeAsyncCallback(IAsyncResult result)

Interesting turn of events with the release it seems - we experienced some server hosting issues that caused majority of the challenges you had been experiencing (saving, profiles, etc). As for the missing config button, see here: https://synthiam.com/Products/Releases/Release-Stable-Beta-2019-12-07-00-18886
