Strange Behavior of Window Menu

Hello Everyone,

I am using VS 2002 (VB.NET) and have a MDI application in which the user
will open several child windows at the same time. I have included a menu
Window, which MDIList property is set to True. I also have all the
traditional menus included in it (Tile Horizontal, Vertical, Cascade, Arrange
and Close All).
The strange thing is that when the child windows are open in normal window
state everything is OK, but if I set the their window state to Maximized the
Window menu starts behaving very strange: the first time you click it the
next menu on the right opens (Help menu), you have to click again to open the
Window menu. Also, there is some flickering (sometimes) when you close one of
the child windows.

I was wondering if anyone had noticed anything similiar. I am not sure if I
am doing something wrong or there is a bug in VS 2002?

Thanks in advance,
Daniel

Daniel,

I thought that there is a bug in the part which you are busy, however if it
is exactly this one, I don't remember me.

I thought that I once made a workaround for it so maybe can you try that
yourself.

I hope this helps,

Thanks Cor,

I will try to use your workaround. Meanwhile, I tried the same code in VS
2003 and it seems to work fine, that what makes me think that it may be a bug
in vs 2002.

Thanks again,
Daniel

Hi, I have noticed some strange behaviour when loading my database. I load a menu form on startup; this form contains a linked image to display. If the project is not then signed, the menu form loads normally, briefly displaying a loading picture progress window before the form appears. However, if I digitally sign the VB project, the image loading progress window flashes repeatedly many times before the menu finally loads.

Hi all, I'm having this strange problem where, in a web app, I have 2 different links to a different form. One is just a straight forward link the other is a bit more complicated because it gets there from a user control I wrote to display a menu. However both call the page in the same way using window.open('page.aspx','_top'); The problem is that:.... The page it calls, in the page load, checks to see if a session variable is null,...

Hello all, Here's another mind puzzle from me :-) Today I tried to add a new resource to my program and VS.NET (v 7.0.9466) just died. What I mean by that is that it silently and quickly (immediately actually) closed its window. No errors, no access faults - nothing. Just died. I restarted it, tried to add a resource again and it repeated itself. I rebooted the computer (which I haven't done in a few weeks now), but it doesn't help...

I know this one is WAY out pushing the envelope, but I'd like to know if anyone has any ideas about it. We have a behemoth of a legacy MFC application which is now being embedded in a Windows Forms application (using VS 2005). It took some substantial out of the box thinking to make this work, but by and large it is working. There is one behavior, however, which we haven't quite solved yet. For some strange reason, we are having some...

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,...
