Invalid string option

This message occurs when Corona fails to identify and process text entered in string options field which can be found in Devel/Debug settings.


Syntax example:

type name = value

e.g.:


float mtlEditor.lightsIntensity = 2.5

 


Possible causes:

  • Typing error in entered string option
  • Entered string option was deprecated
  • Attempting to use string options in an incorrect way
  • Entered string option is only available in newer Corona versions


Solutions:

  • Make sure the string options are supposed to work in the version of Corona you are currently using
  • Make sure the string options are correctly written, including text formatting, spaces and special marks
