Thanks for trying to fix the scroll issue and then restoring the last version.
The Last Version that i have is from 18.01.2016 it works fine.
Hi @lizpoir, It looks like you need a board index for your ReleaseAll,

ReleaseAll(0) should work for you if you are connecting your ez-b on connection 0.
You do not need to specify a board index, as it's an optional parameter as specified in user manual. The issues that the poster had discovered were repaired in dot releases, which is represented in the version.

There was two dot releases, one for each issue that was discovered
Sorry i do not understand your answer, now I have now a Board Index indicate or not?
And what is problem with the camera?
Hi @lizpoir DJ has fixed both problems. ReleaseAll() is ok to use without board index. Please download the newest version of ARC, thanks!
Lizpoir, always update to the latest version to solve issues with bugs. When ARC loads, it will tell you if there's a new version. Following your two bugs reports, dot releases were updated. Please note that the version you stated is incomplete. You stated 2016.02.18. When the real version is actually 2016.02.18.00 or 2016.02.18.01 or 2016.02.18.02.

Do not dismiss the last two decimal values of the version number.
Hello Thanks for your Help an Information,
but now I noticed, the Button "Check Syntax" does not work.
Yes, I can confirm this. It stopped working a couple upgrades ago.
Syntax Check button is being deprecated due to the compiled nature of ez-script. It will most likely be removed in the next release. It doesn't do much anymore. Use the RUN command instead.

Speaking of GUI related points... it probably only impacts a few of us now, the increase in 4k screens does make it more difficult to use ARC.

I'll be fine since I'm starting to use the SDK more, but I thought I'd mention it as more people get 4k screen computers. (I wish I hadn't - ARC is just one of the apps I use which now makes me have to guess at what button I'm clicking). This isn't a bug in ARC, but I just thought I'd mention it since you've done some work with the scroll bars recently.

(you can delete this message if this isn't the appropriate place to post it)
We've been aware of that - and like the rest of the software world, hoping that Microsoft releases system tools to help gui development with 4k displays. Currently, it's one of the hugest pains to accommodate, which is why ARC is one of many wondering when we will see proper OS level support for 4k displays.

PS, this is an old thread. The latest version at the time of my response is 2016.02.20.00 and the thread for that revision can be found here:

Wait, what? Are you saying scripts are now compiled, as opposed to interpreted? Compiled as exe, obj, P-code, ... ? I also don't understand why the syntax checker is no longer useful.
Scripts have always been compiled to an opcode - you have engaged in conversations with this mentioned with details. Search will be useful as a refresher. Syntax check has been removed in this release. Use RUN instead.

PS, stay tuned for upcoming releases where we're working to implement something quite awesome - in the direction EZ-Script is moving...
