Bugs?

Post by Mex »

Hi Timo!

Found two more problems with ToolBarControls

MDI form with ReBar and ToolBar. Click on TB button opens vbModal form. First click on modal form is not registered!


MDI form with ReBar and ToolBar
When I want to use picturebox as custom toolbar or one more rebar/toolbar with different alignment, then application hangs.
PictureBox+ReBar with same alignment, then everything works OK

Hi,

Can you provide a sample project that I can use to reproduce the problems?

Thank you for the sample.

As for the vbModal form, it is always better to use the ExecuteCommand event instead of the Click event. ExecuteCommand does not suffer from such problems and also will fire if the user presses a hotkey that you registered for a tool bar button.

The alignment problem already seems to be fixed with the changes that I applied two weeks ago. At least I cannot reproduce it with your sample. Currently I'm very short of time, but I'll try to release a fixed version on saturday.

Hi!

Thank you, IDE is not crashing any more!

Noticed two things

1) If on MDI form are PictureBox (aligned top or bottom) and ReBar (aligned left/right), then ReBar is behind PB, is this normal or bug?
2) If i add ReBar to the form and change alignment in code to right, then ReBars width is very big. In previous version ReBar's width was set automatically, now i must set width to match toolbars width.

1) Alignment is done mostly by COM (i.e. Windows itself) and it doesn't cope well with multiple COM objects having the same alignment. I'm afraid there's nothing I can do about it.

2) Seems like my fix for the crash causes this behavior. I'll try to find a better solution.

OK, but why toolbar in mscomtl does align below PB if PB alignment is top and toolbar alignment right?
