Overview

Menu item command IDs and dialog item ID values of 0 will cause problems which may be hard to identify and debug.


Detailed description

Menu item (RESOURCE MENU_ITEM) command IDs and dialog item (RESOURCE DLG_LINE) will cause problems which may be hard to identify and debug if 0 is used as the ID value.


Solution

Always use a non-zero value for MENU_ITEM command IDs, because 0 is reserved for the EEikCmdCanceled command.

Similarly, a dialog's item (DLG_LINE) IDs must be non-zero. Dialog items with a zero ID will result in "Eikon-Dialog 3" panic, where 3 is listed as EEikDialogPanicFocusableLineWithIdZero.

Typically, applications define resource ID values as enumerations and a common mistake is to begin the enumeration from 0 (default), which leads to these hard-to-identify problems.
