Problem with Window Menu in MDI application

Hello Everyone,

I have a VB.NET MDI application with a menu 'Window', which MdiList is set
to true. The problem I am experiencing is that when the user click on the
Window menu the first time, the next menu on the right ('Help') opens
instead, even though the mouse's pointer is over the 'Window' menu. If, at
this moment the user moves the mouse a little (but still over 'Window') the
'Window' menu appears and from there it functions normal.

Also, I the user opens more than one child form, everythis works well,
except that when trying to close one of them you can see a lot of flickering.

I do not know if both things are related or not.

Any ideas what maybe causing this behavior.

Hi, I have an MDI application which has aboout 10 child windows. The way the app needs to work is that only one window should be visible at a time and it should be maximized within the parent window. I have set all my child windows to be WindowState.Maximized but after showing 2 or 3 windows, the windows all drop back to Normal state. I have tried various things to overcome this inclusing overriding OnResize etc but none seem to give...

I have a Tkinter app running on cygwin. It includes a Test menu item that does nothing more than fetch a directory listing and display it in a Toplevel window (I'd use a tkMessageBox showinfo widget, but for some reason the text is invisible on cygwin). After I close the Toplevel widget, all of the menus in my app behave as though they have no contents to them, i..e I can press on the File menu button, and see it depress, but the Exit...

I am trying to write an event-driven application with no main window that runs "forever". It waits on a named event and then displays a window depending on data pased in a memory-mapped file. I started with a standard console application and it all works fine, except that it does not terminate tidily when the user logs off/shuts down. So, I figured I needed a message loop to pick up WM_QUIT. I studied the code in "Waiting in a message loop"...

I am working on .NET Version 2003 making an SDI application that calls MS Excel 2003. I added a menu item called "MyApp Help" in the end of the menu bar to show Help-> About. The application calls MS Excel, so the scenario is that I am supposed to see the Excel Menu bar, FILE EDIT VIEW INSERT ... HELP. I am able to see the menu bar, but in case of Help, I see the Help of Excel and help of my application, both as a submenu of help. ...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
