    Hi all,

    to keep it short, this crashes my app immediately after I close the request:

    app = ApplicationObject,End;
    fr = (struct FileRequester *)MUI_AllocAslRequest(ASL_FileRequest, frtags);
    MUI_AslRequest(fr, NULL);


    And this works:


    fr = (struct FileRequester *)MUI_AllocAslRequest(ASL_FileRequest, frtags);
    MUI_AslRequest(fr, NULL);
    app = ApplicationObject,End;


    This is only a short example. I have a fully running app where I'm not able to show a requester trying many examples. I also tried AllocAslRequest and AslRequest, same result.

    MorphOS 3.8 on PowerBook 5,9. Thx!

    It likely won't work if the application loop isn't running.

    In fact its here:

    Code:

    while (running)
    {
    ULONG id = DoMethod((Object *)app,MUIM_Application_NewInput,&sigs);
    .
    .
    .
    case MEN_SWITCH_USER:
    fr = (struct FileRequester *)MUI_AllocAslRequest(ASL_FileRequest, frtags);
    if (fr != NULL)
    {
    if (MUI_AslRequest(fr, NULL))
    {
    }
    FreeAslRequest(fr);
    }
    else printf("User Cancelledn");
    break;
    }
    if (running && sigs) Wait(sigs);
    }


    It seems that a PopaslObject is a better choice. However, I don't see how to use it in a menu without buttons in the window. Any help?

    Uhm, I am certain it works. See here:

    I tried this source, also no solution. Maybe I should mention that I use gcc 4.4.5 as it seems that it sometimes is a problem, that is why I need SDI_HOOK.h. I've found a ppcinline/muimaster.h that defines the MUI_ASLRequest differently, but it is not used.

    SDI_HOOK.h? I would throw that away and use something native.

    I dont think GCC 4.4.5 would matter but compiler bugs are always possible.

    This code works for me. And this code did't need a mui gui, so it can open a asl requester
    in a shell prog.

    Code:
    int asl (char kopf[],BOOL save,STRPTR pattern,char dir_[150],char *out,char *_dir,char *_file, char ifile[])
    {
    struct FileRequester *fr;
    unsigned char file[100] = "";
    unsigned char dir[100] = "";
    unsigned char path[100]= "";
    int filezahl = 0;

    AslBase = OpenLibrary("asl.library",40L);
    if (AslBase != NULL)
    {
    if( (fr = AllocAslRequestTags( ASL_FileRequest,
    ASL_Hail, (ULONG) kopf,
    ASL_OKText, (ULONG) "OK",
    ASL_CancelText, (ULONG) "Cancel",
    ASL_File, (ULONG) ifile,
    ASL_Dir, (ULONG) dir_,

    ASLFR_DoSaveMode,save,
    ASLFR_DoPatterns,TRUE,
    ASLFR_InitialPattern,pattern,
    TAG_DONE ) ) )
    {
    if (AslRequest(fr, NULL))
    {
    strcpy(file,fr->rf_File);
    strcpy(dir,fr->rf_Dir);
    strcpy(_dir,dir);
    strcpy(_file,file);


    strcat(path,dir);
    strcat(path,"/");
    strcat(path,file);
    strcpy(out,path);

    if (strstr(path,":/") != 0)
    {
    unsigned char path[100] = "";
    strcat(path,dir);
    strcat(path,file);
    strcpy(out,path);
    }
    }
    else
    {
    if (IoErr())
    {
    /*Es wird 0 in path2 kopiert, wenn man den Close-Button oder "Cancel" betätigt.*/
    strcpy(out,"0");
    return 0;
    }
    else
    {
    /*Es wird 0 in path2 kopiert, wenn man den Close-Button oder "Cancel" betätigt.*/
    strcpy(out,"0");
    return 0;
    }
    }
    FreeAslRequest(fr);
    }
    else
    {
    /* Es wird -1 in path2 kopiert, wenn man nicht die asl.library öffnen kann.*/
    strcpy(out,"-1");
    return -1;
    }
    CloseLibrary(AslBase);
    }
    return 1;
    }

    Actually your example has several issues.

    First of all: I now know how to crash all your applications as you limit the name/dir/path to 100 without any proper checking. Even if you increase the path to 1000 it is a no go without proper error checking. And even with error checking you limit the user to a path of 100, which is nothing.

    Check the size of the name and path fields delivered by ASL and allocate memory with the proper size and copy the data in. Avoid fixed sized buffers if possible or at least check boundaries.

    In addition to that you are dealing with "/" on your own. There are functions for that in AmigaDOS. You assume a path is delivered without a slash, but what if the user edits the field by hand or ASL gets modified to return a slash? In that case with your code you get "path:drawer//file", which is wrong.

    Seriously use AddPart().

    And avoid using of blah[<number>] in code. It screams for protential errors. Use proper constants you define at one place. Numbers in code are bad and will cause trouble in the future.

    use:

    #define FILEBUFFER_SIZEOF 0x100

    char file[ FILEBUFFER_SIZEOF ];

    this way you have the proper name for checking the buffer size without using 100 as length in strncpy(() or strncat().

    You did't know, thats impossible to iclude manuel a "/" in the asl requester.
    After a you push the return button the "/" disapear.
    A user can manuel change the text in the asl requester, but no adding the "/".
    Test it!
    I can't get such thing like ""path:drawer//file"".

    Thats not the point. You assume this will work that way. Using the same code on OS3.x may not work. What if someone patched to ReqTools there.

    Do not compose paths on your own. This at some point will fail very badly.

    System functions are there to be used. It even makes your code more save and the code size get smaller when using DOS functions like AddPart() and FilePart().

    And do not use fixed size file name buffers. This will fail very easy.

    Ok I've got a short source code that all should be able to compile and to crash:

    Code:

    /* Compile: gcc Crash.c */
    #include <proto/intuition.h>
    #include <proto/asl.h>
    #include <proto/muimaster.h>
    struct Library *MUIMasterBase, *AslBase;
    struct IntuitionBase *IntuitionBase;
    int main(int argc,char *argv[]) {
    APTR fr;
    MUIMasterBase = OpenLibrary("muimaster.library",0);
    AslBase = OpenLibrary("asl.library", 0);
    IntuitionBase=(struct IntuitionBase *) OpenLibrary("intuition.library",39);
    ApplicationObject,End;
    fr = (struct FileRequester *)MUI_AllocAslRequestTags(ASL_FileRequest, TAG_DONE);
    MUI_AslRequest(fr, NULL); }


    If you comment out ApplicationObject... it works, if you compile without ixemul it works. But not this way.

    Ixemul is meant for building bsd/linux apps. You should not mix ixemul and MorphOS OS functions.

    Need curl, ssl, etc and in contrast to AmigaOS there is no curl without.

    curl and openssl can be built for libnix. It requires some effort though.

    Fab has offered to provide libnix curl if needed.
