    Sidebar will not load. Gives error.

    Pardon me if this should be posted somewhere else. I am still a novice at all of this. I can't get the sidebar to load when I load 2nd edition ruleset however. I tested on other rulesets 5e, DCC, C&C etc and all loaded a sidebar. 2E does not. When I try to go to options and load it I get this error.

    [2/27/2021 10:25:47 AM] [ERROR] Script execution error: [string "scripts/manager_desktop.lua"]:445: attempt to index local 'vCtrl' (a userdata value)

    Anyone know what might be happening? ELI5.

    What are you doing to get that error?

    Well there is no sidebar. So I checked options preferences, and tried to see if I clicked on the sidebar options etc if it would load it. So I would click on off various things hoping it would load. If I try to adjust anything on sidebar I get that error. There is no sidebar when the game loads. The Sidebar loads on other games in unity however just not on 2E.

    So I I have fixed it. Apparently it was set to default as "menus" and not sidebar...it was in the top left. I did not change it this is how 2E started for me by default. I Changed that to sidebar and it looks like I am used to in other games. Now if I adjust sidebar it does not give the error.

    I'm still a bit confused as to how you were generating errors. If I can figure out how you are doing that and can replicate I can write code to generate a message to give folks a better idea how to resolve it. Far as I am aware the only "sidebar options" outside of the menu/bar setting is this and I am not able to get console errors from it with or without the right bar enabled.



    Here is a previous discussion on setting the menu/bar option.

    The errors came through when I had it set to your new menu and tried to edit the sidebar.....I guess because there was no sidebar to edit.

    I didn't realize you had set menu system like that on purpose. Since posting all of this I have watched your video "AD&D 2E ruleset for Fantasy Grounds demo and Q&A." It's all clear to me now, and now I get it..and I have to say I do like your system better. Being used to using sidebar though I was confused when it started without it. I do think the way you have it set up though is more efficient!

    What do you mean "edit" the sidebar? Mainly I'd like to know so I can have it display a message, not an error response.

    Gotcha. So if you have it setup for your system with Menu Style selected as "Menus" at the start. Then go to preferences there is a button for sidebar. Click that and then try in anyway to alter the sidebar settings. That should generate the error or it does on mine. I didn't see the "menu style" selection. So I thought perhaps changing sidebar settings would get it to reload. I am still very newb on FG.
