Q30372: "Type Mismatch" When "INPUT1" Is Elementname in TYPE Statement
Article: Q30372 Product(s): See article Version(s): 4.00 4.00b 4.50 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | buglist4.00 buglist4.00b fixlist4.50 B_BasicCom | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 31-JAN-1990 A variable "type mismatch" error improperly occurs if the reserved word "INPUT" is embedded in an elementname in a TYPE...END TYPE statement. Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in QuickBASIC Versions 4.00 and 4.00b and in Microsoft BASIC Compiler Version 6.00 for MS-DOS and MS OS/2 (buglist6.00). This problem was corrected in QuickBASIC Version 4.50, in the compiled version of Microsoft BASIC Compiler Version 6.00b (fixlist6.00b), and in Microsoft BASIC Professional Development System (PDS) Version 7.00 for MS-DOS and MS OS/2 (fixlist7.00). The same syntax does not fail when it is not in a TYPE elementname. For example, the following two-line program runs properly: f.input1 = 123.2 PRINT f.input1 Please note that the TYPE...END TYPE statement is not supported in previous releases of the QuickBASIC compiler. To work around this problem, avoid using reserved words embedded within names used in the TYPE...END TYPE statement. The following is a code example: TYPE checkout1 numa AS INTEGER input1 AS STRING * 10 'works ok if input1 is changed to out1 END TYPE DIM f AS checkout1 f.input1 = "abcdef" PRINT f.input1
