Bulletin: 2013-03

Date: 10-31-2013

Category: 2

Program affected: PIPE-FLO Professional 12 and Flow of Fluids 12

Build numbers affected: 12.0.19520, 12.1.21412, 12.1.21778

Approved by: RL

Background

The Property Grid may be undocked and used as a free-floating window. Certain design data is entered in dialog boxes and drop down menus accessed from the Property Grid. If the Property Grid is undocked, values entered into some of these design data fields are not being committed, i.e., the entered value is not actually updating the device's design data.

Condition

If the Property Grid is undocked, design data values fail to commit when entered in the following places:

  • Tank's Penetrations dialog
  • Pipe's Size drop down menu, including when specified using the Pipe's Size Calculator
  • Font dialog for any device
  • Curve dP Device's Curve Data dialog
  • Pressure Gain Device's Curve Data dialog
  • Centrifugal Pump's Pump Data dialog

Workaround

Make sure the Property Grid is docked before attempting to edit the mentioned design data.
