Hello,
I've just noticed that Pascal Script engine is no more able to read arrays in version CT5.5, last tested in CT4.7 were it was working out of the box.
Thanks.

I've just prepared this sample project to verify the bug

Thanks, I think I found another bug, maybe they are related, the sample project attached on CT5.5 raises exception at function test2.
By the way I replaced the pl_PascalScript of CT5.5 by the same in CT4.7 but the problem remains, do I have to rebuild the IDE, or the bug is in FPC itself?

Sir we test pl_PascalScript
with CodeOcean small IDE sample
C:\codetyphon\CodeOcean\PascalScript\samples\a_small_ide

and we don't find any problem with test scripts
C:\codetyphon\CodeOcean\PascalScript\samples\a_small_ide\scripts

We don't know the "logic" of your app
CT 4.7 it's to old version

There's nothing strange in the logic of my application, declaring custom array types and then calling them, something was broken and sure there will be other complaints for advanced projects in the future if it won't be fixed. The problem is the compiler, I'll try to test with the latest lazarus release with FPC 3.0 and report back.

There is no access violation and the message window is shown with Lazarus 1.6 and FPC3.0, but values are wrong and program enters infinite loop (Length of vector not working), as I guessed it's a compiler problem.

Sir
a) my opinion and our lab test show
that CT-FPC is more stable from FPC 3.0

b) please make a script to test with
C:\codetyphon\CodeOcean\PascalScript\samples\a_small_ide

like this
Program IFSTest;
type
  TArrayOfString = array of String;

procedure Test(x: TArrayOfString);
var
  i: integer;
begin
  for i := 0 to Getarraylength(X) -1 do
  begin
     writeln(x[i]);
  end;
end;
var
  temp: TArrayOfString;

Begin
  setarraylength(temp, 2);
  temp[0] := 'Test1';
  temp[1] := 'Test2';
  test(temp);
End.

this sample work OK on 8 OSes

Thanks for your suggestion, I'll test and report, meanwhile I reported to the lazarus forum and maybe I'll report to FPC.

Well, the way you suggested the script will be too big (with my real program) and I want to keep things simple in the script, so I need to hide some parts and make function calls as I did, anyway thanks for the point.

Finally array types work for you in CT 5.6?
I can post screens from any OS you like.

The script you provided earlier works fine, but I can't use it as it will make the script too big in the real program.

After doing a lot of tests I found the bug exits only in Lazarus 64 bit versions, and the program works as expected with Lazarus 1.4 x86 with FPC 2.6.2 and with Lazarus 1.6RC1 with FPC 3.0.

Sure, I wanted to give you some guides for comparison, as it could give you some hints if the bug is only in Lazarus 64bit version while with CT is in the 32 bit version (I didn't test the 64bit yet), I talk Object Pascal at last.
