The Save to Flash exclamation point (!) (bang) shows on a Controller object and indicates that the controller 'requires flash backup' but won't save to flash.


The Save to Flash exclamation point (bang) shows on a Controller object. Hovering over the icon, a tooltip comes up indicating that the controller 'requires flash backup'. However when performing a backup to flash, a result comes back that the 'controller doesn't need flash backup' and the exclamation icon remains. Re-loading the controller and performing a send to database have no effect.


Continuum Controllers


The ObjectStatus attribute of the controller, or an object in the controller, may be fixed on and falsely reporting a save to flash is required when one is not.


Toggle the ObjectStatus attribute by forcing it to a value of zero:

  1. In Continuum Explorer, find the controllers that have bangs on them
  2. Browse in these controllers and see if there are any objects with bangs on them.
  3. Run a  Default Class Listview on those objects that show bangs
  4. In the listview, select the object(s) that are affected, right-click and SetAttribute for the ObjectStatus attribute to 0. This will reset the bang until it gets set when the flash again needs to be updated..
