Error Code M47

M[UMPS] by Example

Right Hand Pointer

M47, Invalid attribute value

Introduced in the 1995 ANSI M[UMPS] Windowing Application Programmers' Interface.

If a value domain is specified for an attribute, all values outside the specified domain are reserved. Unless specifically stated otherwise, if an application attempts to assign an attribute value outside of the specified domain of that attribute, this error will occur. After this, special variable $ERef will contain a value that indicates the reference to the structured system variable for which the error occurred.

Assume that an application has defined two windows, A and B. If, for window A, the application attempts to assign a value to the PARENT attribute, naming window B as the parent, and the DISPLAY attributes for windows A and B are different, this error will occur. After this, special variable $ERef will contain a value that indicates the reference to the structured system variable for which the error occurred.

If an application attempts to assign a value of "TRUE" to a TIED attribute, and the window's parent is a display, this error will occur. After this, special variable $ERef will contain a value that indicates the reference to the structured system variable for which the error occurred.

In earlier printed versions of the 1995 ANSI M[UMPS] Windowing Application Programmers' Interface, this error was identified as M?2.
