VIP Bulk Load - changes widths of ICONs in @FORMs

ProIV : 5.5r411
Mfc : 5.6.5.0
Vip : 5.5922 (005)
Platform: Windows NT Server

We have a function with a format that has an Icon defined with a WIDTH 42.

**** Extract from @DOCFN *****

03 6 : 3
TAG: WEB2
DISP: ALIGN: C TYPE: ICON SUPP.LAB: REP STR: VISITWEB FKEY:
HEIGHT: 1 WIDTH: 42 ICON NAME: PDSCLEAR.GIF VAR: Y
ICON LABEL:$$WEB1 VAR:
TOOL TIP: Some text here to act as the mouse tool tip help line

**** End of Extract *****

**** Logic In used to set the $$WEB1 **********

098 001 * Logic In
002 *
003 $$WEB1 = 'http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/'
004 WEB2.BACKCOLOR = 'WHITE'
005 WEB2.FORECOLOR = 'BLUE'
006 WEB2.FONTNAME = 'TAHOMA'
007 WEB2.UNDERLINE = 1
008 WEB2.ALIGNMENT = 'MID_CENTER'
009 WEB2.SCALE = 1

**** End of Logic *******

When you load this into VIP via the "Bulk Load" - VIP/Admin/Tools/Bulk Load

The code has now been changed and the new width of the Icon is 1.
Function in VIP (Statics) the $$WEB1 now has a width of 1.
Build it in VIP
Using the native @FORM look at what VIP has transferred back and you will see the width of 1.

This is a major bug as it will change the majority of our Application.

Just to clarify this one....

we had a function written in native with an icon in a format with a width (say 30).

When it's uploaded into VIP and native is rebuilt, the length has been changed to 1 so all icons are now screwed.

Anybody else had this as an issue? Is there a solution?

For those who are intrested I had a reply back from ProIV:

Subject: VIP Bulk Load changes Icon Widths - ProIV References: NOR242823 / L1720

This will be fixed in the next version 5 maintenance release of VIP and also in version 6.

We have uploaded a patch (nor242823.vpx) for your version of VIP into your personal category on the ProIV website (www.proiv.com). Please import this VPX into VIP.

Please note that importing a PRX into VIP or using bulk upload in a pre VIP 5.5931 that has not had this patch applied will show the same problem.

**************************************************

This patch has worked, it has left my test function intact after uploading and building in VIP.
