I’m on a Mac (10.14.6) using 2019R1.1
For a MovableModal window the EnableMenuItems event on the Window does not seem to be firing when I use Window.ShowModal
Am I missing something?
Is that expected? I think it may be…
I THINK I vaguely remember running into this in the past at some point, but don’t recall exactly how I worked around it…
Is there a way to get the event to fire?
In the past I think i just hid the main window and used Show instead of ShowModal… But that won’t work here as the other window has info that is useful to refer to while working in the modal window.
There is not enough real-estate top redesign the UI to use a single window
- which is why I used a movable modal window and not a sheet.
This will also need to work on Windows but right now I am just worried about the Mac.
Besides just enabling and disabling menuItems, I also change menuItem text in the event to make it more context sensitive.
So is there a workaround for this?
I suppose I could subclass MenuItem and store a reference to the window in the tag and have it do it itself in it’s Enable event based on the state of the window (and I guess it should be a Weak Ref for the window)… But there has to be a better way to deal with menus for Modal Windows!
