I'm trying to track down a bug, and the already released fix for the bug. It IS fixed (I'm pretty sure), but I'd like to know why and how? Am I using the Xojo Feedback application incorrectly?
A while back, I was surprised when a ListBox I had created with gridlines lost those gridlines when Apple released a Mac OS Update. (It was a Macintosh desktop Cocoa 64-bit application.) I did a little research (on this Xojo Forum) and discovered that this was supposedly an Apple problem, not my (programming) problem, and not a Xojo problem. This made sense since it was the same program being used before and after an OS update that showed and didn't show the gridlines.
But then, a new Mac OS update was released, and my old program still did NOT show gridlines. I would have guessed that if Apple had the problem, they would have fixed it, and I'd suddenly see gridlines again, but I didn't.
Anyway, just recently (using the latest Xojo 2018r2), I recompiled that app (with no other changes) and noticed the new app showed the missing gridlines again whereas the old app still did not. This would seem to indicate the missing gridlines was a Xojo bug (not mine, or Apple's?) and that Xojo obviously found and fixed the bug. And, I'm trying to verify the truth of that statement.
So, again, I did a little searching, this time, using the Xojo Feedback (bug-reporting) application, searched for "gridlines", "missing gridlines", "listbox gridlines", and found a few bug reports that seemed to be about this problem (see bug report numbers: 48186, 51508, 51783, 51848.) If you look at them, you'll see indications that the bug was verified, found and fixed! (good news!) But, I still couldn't find info on the actual fix or when it was released, for which Xojo version.
So, I went to this page (http://developer.xojo.com/release-notes ) in hopes of finding actual info on changes that were made to some recent Xojo version, but came up empty.
Anyway, that's the story. Does anyone know what was actually fixed? Was that fix documented in a Release Note for a certain version that I missed? Did I not use the Feedback app correctly? (is there a way when it says "verified and fixed" to find out in what release the fix appeared?)
