    Hello ...

    I am developing a scoring program using B4A. I think I have done my homework on this problem. If you read through this hopefully you will agree that it is an Android issue, not a coding problem.

    Scenario)
    • With y'alls help I have my layouts/panels working. No heavy duty work behind the layouts/panels yet, just popping back and forth between them so I could show it to our shooting club.
    • Went from TRIAL to LICENSED on Thursday, 6/24/2016.
    • Recompiled with RELEASE immediately after licensed install.
    • Moved it to my ACER 10 under DOCUMENTS, installed it, everything good.
    • Bounced back and forth between screens, then exited out of app. Did this numerous times with no problem.
    • Moved your B4ABeginners GuideV3_2.pdf and B4AUserGuide.pdf over to documents so that I could do some reading while away for the weekend. No blame intended, just stating all actions.
    • At some point I also installed ES FIle Explorer.
    • Pulled out my laptop Saturday AM, 6/25/2016 to show layouts/panels. Immediately got the dreaded
      "Unfortunately, Scoring has stopped"
    • Attempted it numerous times again, same results.
    • Uninstalled the app quite a few times, reinstalled, with same error.
    • Renamed and reinstalled the APK file trying to fool it. Same error message.
    • Got home tonight (Sunday, 6/26/2016), recompiled (with release) the same code (NO CHANGES MADE) and it worked great via bridge.
    • Moved the APK over again as above, installed, opened and it ran fine!
    My Thoughts:
    • Had it been my coding error, stopping and restarting the app should have brought me back running OK until I hit my bad code. As stated above, no problem initially jumping from panel to panel.
    • Uninstalling and reinstalling should have at least given me a clean slate to run with.
    • Renaming/reinstalling also should have wiped the slate clean.
    • It appears that MAYBE the APK was changed, flagged, something ????
    • Why would recompiling and moving it over make the app suddenly start working unless the original APK on the ACER was changed?
    • WHAT I DID NOT DO was simply move the APK from the PC to the ACER and retest before recompiling. As I mentioned, I did do a recompile. (Shame on me.)
    Our objective is to get away from paper score sheets. I know there is a program called A.C.E.S. that does scoring, but it doesn't meet all our needs. The problem concerns me that with no changes it crashed (I can accept that part) but it also stayed "crashed". That presents a whole new issue from a confidence standpoint.

    After all my ramblings, YOUR HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

    BTW, I did reference other posts but none seemed to really address it from this stanpoint.
