Chris's comment:
I have been unable to reproduce this using the sample template in
cwc2/htdocs/test.html with Chameleon 1.0.3. But I was able to produce an error
using the course templates.

Service Instance used (where the context path is wrong):


The error received on the template:

Warning: file(http://localhost/msapps/cwc2ogc_demo/ogc_context.xml): failed to
open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found in
C:\ms4w\apps\cwc2\htdocs\cwc2.php on line 498

The error received in the ErrorReport:

    * (c:/ms4w/tmp/sess_3fc384f15dea5\con56.tmp.xml)
    * Unable to read c:/ms4w/tmp/sess_3fc384f15dea5\con56.tmp.xml
    * ERROR: Invalid context file.

If the context file is invalid, is this the appropriate response by chameleon?

This I find strange since the course template contains the following ErrorReport
Widget. Should the above error be placed in the Error Popup?

        <CWC2 TYPE="ErrorReport" Visible="true" PopupWidth="500"
PopupHeight="400" Toolbar="false" Status="false" Menubar="false"
Image="images/icon_error.png" ImageWidth="18" ImageHeight="18" ImageTip="Display
Error Report" Label="Error Report"/>

However, if the user has added the error reporter widget than the errors will be
displayed there. Is it possible to suppress the php error when it is clearly
displayed using the ErrorReport widget? So, if the ErrorReport widget is NOT
present the php errors will have to be displayed....

Any thoughts? I also realize from a previous bug that the ErrorReporter has a
delayed reaction and often the error does not show up until the user interacts
with the app. This will cause confusion, and is probably why the php error are
helpful to have anyways.

Either way the php error display may not be worded correctly for the simple user
of chameleon.

The display of php error is directly related to their php.ini error loging
setings. This would be either controlled by administrator of the web server.
