2014.1 Vivado System Generator - Closing a Xilinx Blockset block GUI using the "X" in the top right corner of the GUI can cause the block GUI to hang


When I try to close a block GUI for System Generator blocks from the Xilinx Blockset using the "X" in the top right corner, the GUI does not close and instead hangs.


Is this a known issue?

How can I work around this?


This is a known issue in Vivado System Generator 2014.1.

It was discovered that if a user tries to close this dialog using the "X", when a text field is in focus (The cursor is within this field) then the block GUI does not close and it will hang.

For example in the above GUI, if the cursor is in the "Initial value" field when the user tries to close then the GUI will hang.

To work around this issue, use "Cancel" to close this dialog box or ensure that the mouse is not in the text field at the time of closure.

This issue is due to be fixed in the 2014.2 release.
