Typo in Dictionary obj condition text?

  • Problem Description

    For the Dictionary object, there's a possible typo in its event-block condition text.

    When the Dictionary object's, condition "Compare current value" is added to an event, the resulting condition in the event block reads "Current key = " instead of "Current value = "

    Description of Capx

    This capx shows two examples of the Dictionary condition text typo.

    (See the event sheet. It includes comments.)

    Steps to Reproduce Bug

    • 1. Open a new project.
    • 2. Add a Dictionary object.
    • 3. In the event editor, create a new event, and as the condition, choose the Dictionary's "Compare current value" condition.
    • 4. In the condition parameters dialog, leave the settings as they are ("equal to" and "0") and click the "Done" button.
    • 5. In the newly created event block, notice the wording of the text in the compare current value condition. It says s "Current key = 0" instead of "Current value = 0"

    Visual Walk-through:

    Another example where the confusing nature of the typo might be a little clearer.

    Observed Result

    When the Dictionary object's, condition "Compare current value" is added to an event, the resulting condition in the event block reads "Current key = "

    Expected Result

    Perhaps it should instead read "Current value = "
