(joke) Yes, I finally got PDN to crash! (/joke). But on a more serious note, it's possibly my crappy plugin code that's causing this...actually, it's most definitely my code (only happens when I run my plugin via Preview Effect...while it seems to work when I just run it in Debug mode). But the crash reporter says to submit it, so I am.


Here's the relevant text (I uploaded the complete log as well):

Once again, I will remind you that this only happens when I choose Preview Effect in Codelab. The plugin seems to be working otherwise though (I base my assumption on the fact that it seems to generate Debug output just fine). And this crash is reproducible (this the third time I got PDN to crash doing the same thing).

Your effect code has specified a default value that is outside of the range of the control.  


In your script, look for the UI block:


#region UICode
IntSliderControl Amount1 = 0; // [1,100] Radius


If this is not a CodeLab script, but a visual studio project, your UI code will look like this:


protected override PropertyCollection OnCreatePropertyCollection()
    List<Property> props = new List<Property>();

    props.Add(new Int32Property(PropertyNames.Amount1, 0, 1, 100));


This control will cause the problem:  The default value is "0" and the minimum allowed value is "1".  (The maximum value is "100".)


In this case, to fix the problem, just change the "0" to "1" or any other value that sits between 1 and 100.
