FRM-30041: Position of item places it off of canvas

By john.a.wills ·
That vulgar extraneous "of" shows that Oracle's programmer was having some kind of bad day. Take the "of" out and we get a falsifiable statement, which I have by arithmetic on co-ordinates and sizes in fact falsified. Does anyone have any idea what this Oracle Forms compiler message actually means?

try looking at rows other than the first

by john.a.wills In reply to FRM-30041: Position of it ...

It turns out that, English corrected, the message is true, if slightly misleading. The row was, correctly, appearing several times on the canvas, and I was looking only at the effects of the first row. Furthermore, I was looking mainly at the X co-ordinate, whereas it was the Y co-ordinate that had triggered the message - but not the Y co-ordinate in the Properties Palette. I solved the problem, at least for the moment, by increasing the height of the canvas.
