Subject Re: Looking for help for clipboard in Math
Date Tue, 23 Jun 2015 18:46:00 GMT
Hi Michael,

and another report:

I found, what I did wrong. I had used GetTree() and not realized, that 
it does not only return a pointer but actually performs a "pop".
For text clipboard content I have followed your tip with SvMemoryStream 
and utl::OInputStreamWrapper.
So now I can import from clipboard, if the clipboard is of MIME type 
"application/mathml+xml" or if it is of type FORMAT_STRING and is 
actually a math-fragment.

But now I have this problem:
I start module Math with a fresh document, I write a formula into the 
command window (e.g. a^2+b^2) and then try to save as *.mml.
I get the errors cited below. I have not used any operations with the 
clipboard. A build from current trunk does not have this error, so it 
must be something, which I have introduced. But I do not know, what are 
possible causes and where to start.


Locking problem.
Sharing violation while accessing the object.
