    EIKCOCTL 8 when autofocus

    I'm working on a midified version of the cameraapp exemple.

    I'm using a option/exit menu bar in my application, and I have some problems.

    In this application I use the autofocus each 10 sec, but when the autofocus is searching the best focus, if I push the option menu, the application panic (EIKCOCTL 8). So the menu item is not found.

    So I think that the event goes to the bad event handler or something like this. I don't know where exactly are used the menu events for that.

    In debug when I push the option key, I can see the event passing in the HandleKeyEventL function, but it always pass through and exit with "EKeyWasNotConsumed".

    So I don't realy know where I must investigate to find why the autofocus make my application panic with menu. I don't know enought about how the UI api manage the ressources for menu.

    Can someone enlighting me about this ?


    PS :
    - the exit key don't raise a panic event.
    - when my menu has poped up, all functions in this menu works fine while the autofocus is working.

    As you have already found out this panic is about menus. Can it happen that you have a DynInitMenuPaneL somewhere, invoking SetItemDimmed without checking "aResourceId"?

    hoo thank you :D

    It was not exactly that, but while checking this I saw some use of SetItemDimmed that was refering to old deleted commandID, and they was used only if the autofocus was in a specific state.
