Bug: Editor constantly hangs with "Not responding"

Postby pmk65 » Tue Oct 02, 2018 1:31 pm

The latest release of WeBuilder has an annoying problem. It keeps going into "Not responding" mode whenever I type a function or similar. (Tested with coding JavaScript)
I have tried creating a minimal Project with all files set to Exclude, but that doesn't help. This is extremely annoying as I have to wait 1-2 seconds for the editor to come back to life.

I know I'm not the only one experiencing this, as Hans Meiser reported same problem here: http://forums.blumentals.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7588#p27365

Have you still got a previous version of WeBuilder on your system, or have you upgraded it?
Do you know which version of WeBuilder you were using previously?

The version that causes the hanging/delay is 15.3.0.205. I always update to latest version, so the last "good" version must be 15.2.0.204
Unfortunately I don't have the 15.2.0.204 anymore. Is there a place I can download the older versions?

Could you please get me some code that does this? I could hit break while it's frozen and see where it's stuck in and find a way to fix it.

If you can reliably reproduce it, let's try to chat in Skype or similarly and find a way to debug this issue.

I can't reproduce the problem at will. It appears once in a while. But it usually happens when you type a parenthesis. And this seems to be the case for others as well.

Is there anything I can do next time it appears? Editor hangs with a "Not Responding" so there's no crash. And it comes back to "life" again after a couple seconds.
It doesn't seem to be any specific file that triggers the problem. But I have only experienced it while working on JavaScript files.

This happens in PHP as well. I keep typing and have to go back and make corrections.

Is there anything I can do to help identify the issue? It's rather counterproductive and annoying.

I'm not sure whether you're using the latest version but if you are and you get the freezes, contact us here: https://www.webuilderapp.com/support-contact.php
Say that you're from the forums and we'll give you special version of exe that detects frozen UI and generates bugreports which then we can analyze and figure out what caused the freeze.

I got it to hang/crash using the special debug version you provided. Just sent the bugreport data, so lets hope this helps.
