Red Cross bizarre problem.

P: n/a
Hi,

Doing a bit of system testing on a Windows 98 laptop. (.Net 1.1 app).

Did a bit of testing. Loaded a previously saved file. A gray box
appeared with the text and buttons all white rectangles with a big red cross
in it. Pressed a button (the one I thought might be ok). My file
appeared to load. Then when I clicked on any button on my form, the button
was replaced with a white rectangle with a big red cross in it.

Closed down the application. Re-started the application and loaded the same
file, with no problems at all.

I'm assuming this is a framework issue and not an issue with my code. The
only other application running at the same was the CD Player.

Anybody else had a similar problem and any idea how I can prevent this from
happening?

Well, I think we'll need more details than "text and buttons and a red
cross".

Ok,

All my standard .Net buttons and labels were replaced with white rectangles
with red crosses in them.

There was an error generated from somewhere on the loading of the file. I
can't give any more details, since all the text and buttons on that
MessageBox was also replaced with white rectangles with red crosses in.

The only time I'd previously seen a white box with a big red cross was with
datagrids, if you had a field that was null. The datagrid couldn't display
the null and rendered itself as a white box with a red cross. Check under
google groups for "Red Cross" + datagrid and there are several other people
with this problem. In my case it turned out I didn't have one string
initialised. This is a repeatable problem. But I fixed that.

What I saw in that one instance of the file load, I can't explain since it
is not repeatable.
