2011-08-08 15:09:10     Eclipse toolchain bug - setting properties for subfolders

Daniel Price (UNITED STATES)

Message: 102856   


When viewing/setting the properties for a subfolder in my Eclipse blackfin project, I get an Internal Error (Cannot Apply) (NullPointerException). I want to change the C/C++ Build Settings -> Tool Settings for a specific folder in my project.


After I open the Properties window for a subfolder, if I haven't changed anything and hit OK or Apply, I get the error.


If I do change something, e.g. add a compiler flag, the properties are set correctly.


If I then remove this change (e.g. remove the compiler flag), the error comes up on OK/Apply.


I'm running Win7 64-bit, blackfin-toolchain-win32-2010R1.exe with default settings.




Here is the top of the Eclipse stack trace:

I think I remember seeing this, and I thought it happened when I was giving wrong strings in flags (like copy paste error). Can't recollect more than that - sorry!
