filedisplay extension

Not sure whether "Problems" or "Ext. Dev." is the appropriate forum, but I get an odd issue trying to open filedisplay. Restarting MD doesn't seem to help. Reinstalling the extension doesn't seem to help. Maybe something simple (or stupid or both). This is build 3027.

    Odd, build 3027 works for me OK on MD build 3034..

    Not in any way trying to usurp Mike's excellent extension, but if you need to look at data urgently, you can try my Toolbox 🧰 extension. Enter Geek Out Mode, and then you can view any object/txn....:

    @Stuart Beesley, I can't seem to run toolbox either. I'm on MD 2021 (2006) and have your extension as v1008. Something common between them you suspect that I've messed up with my environment?

    Hi van_looveren

    As mentioned above, you must be on build 2012 or above. Best to get the latest build 3034.

    No, I doubt there will be a common factor between these extensions....Mike’s is compiled Java, mine is runtime python.

    @derekkent23 and @Stuart Beesley, thanks for letting me know about MD version compatibility. I'm sorry I missed that if stated in the README. Now I see it:

    Minimum Moneydance version for use as an Extension: 2021 (build: 2012) - (Minimum version 2020 if run as a script)

    Looks like I can try it as a script without going to the preview build.
