Of course I get a list of hundreds of errors in the code (due to the update), but when I click on a line to get into the code it stays not selected nor gives it any overview of the properties

When updating from Servoy 7.3.1 it should not result in any error, what kind of errors do you get?

I can't seem to find mentioning of the SVY-5588 fix. Is it not included in 7.4 (although mentioned in Jira as included in 7.4) or is it forgotten in the 7.4 list of fixes?
Thanks in advance.

You're right. Strinkly speaking they are warnings not errors. Sorry. Nothing to worry about. Thinghs like "function soandos is not applicable for the aruments soandso..."
But what is anoying is this: Usually when you click on such a warning in the list the script or form opens on the right place; Now for form elements the form opens but the element stays not selected and there are no properties visible and for now I don't know yet where to make them visible. So I'm a bit lost...

Can't reproduce this situation, properties show just fine when clicking on elements from a form node in solex. Can you maybe give more detail on how to reproduce this?

I can't say anymore than I did: I click on a form in the left column and rightclick 'Open in form editor' then instantly the left column where the properties should appear gets blank. When I click on an element it stays blank. I guess I better downgrade to the previous version? (see screendump)
Another pronblem I encounter is that it seems we can't typecast 2 different typs anymore like {String|Number} May it is is considered bad coding but there are a lot of places the returvalue of some method can be both and in the previous version this was no problem. Is there a work around?
I also see a whole list with "The function clear is not valid for a related foundset" while the code is not pointing to a related foundset but a foundset on another form.
Is my installation just corupt? I cleaned several times and restarted several times but these things stay.

Web editor for mobile client is not showing anything. Fresh install, Mac 10.9.2, Java 1.6.0_65, Xul runner installed, and properties file addition.

We have heard this once before during release candidate period.
The cause is not exactly clear, the servoy update works as expected.
In case you expirence otherwise, replace servoy_updater.jar with:

Thanks Jan, strange I did not find it and of course it's more than ok that you reference it (that was not what made me not "see" the entry, as I was looking at these release notes ;-)

Hi Jos,

we don't have that problem, not seeing the properties. It simply works. Maybe something is broken... Did you try a fresh install?
And about typecast two different types, it is still possible to do that, but the reason is that you now have to explicitly tell it, that you you can return two different types.
If you don't do that, you'll get a warning indeed...

Seeing this as well. An additional click over in the Solution Explorer on the form node seems to get the properties pane to start behaving like normal.
