[Openmcl-devel] AgentCubes 2.5 and MacOS Sierra not happy with each other

thank you Paul, this worked!

There is still one confusion: when I do subclass ns-application (e.g., below as my-application) where does one specify the application class name? Is there something similar to GUI::*DELEGATE-CLASS-NAME for application? At first I assumed that the application-class of build-application served this purpose but I think this is a CLOS not cocoa class.

(defclass my-application (ns:ns-application)
  (:metaclass ns:+ns-object))

best, Alex

I have been out the loop for some time. AgentCubes is a CCL based Application on the Mac/PC but it no longer runs on MacOS Sierra (10.12.2)

This is probably not even close to sufficient information but we get:

Error: The value #<A Foreign Pointer #x63380D0> is not of the expected type OBJC:OBJC-OBJECT.
While executing: (:OBJC-DISPATCH NEXTSTEP-FUNCTIONS:|init|), in process Initial(0).

Does this ring a bell with anybody?

Yes!  This is the same message that a user reported when trying to run my Hoppi application [1] on Sierra.  It was built by me with CCL 1.10 on El Capitan (I don't yet have Sierra).  The problem went away when I updated the application to build with CC 1.11 (see the thread "Tips on building a mac application" on this mailing list a few weeks ago).

The changes I had to make to get Hoppi to build with CCL 1.11 were:-

1. change my application class to subclass NS:NS-APPLICATION directly, instead of GUI::LISP-APPLICATION (which was removed in CCL 1.11), and

2. use GUI::*DELEGATE-CLASS-NAME* instead of GUI::*DEFAULT-NS-APPLICATION-PROXY-CLASS-NAME* to set the application delegate class for CCL::BUILD-APPLICATION.

Hope this helps,
