I’ve started a new Linux project and created my main window with a simple logo canvas and a linear gradient in the paint event of a second Canvas. The Window has implicit turned off and there is no other code in the project. Upon running the project on Linux to test my gradient colors, the window appears even though I never create an instance of the window. I didn’t realize anything was out of order until I continued with my code in the App.Open event and then noticed that I hadn’t set up a “Dim WMain As New Window1”.
Has anyone else seen a situation where a non-implicit window is shown even when it’s never created?
Linux Mint 18, 64bit
Okay - very odd in that the same thing occurs on OS X with an empty window.
Change Window1 implicit instance to False
The Window1 window is displayed.
App.default window ?
Unless you set that to none it will create one
D’oh! It’s been too long since I’ve started from scratch without one of my app templates :).
This case has been closed because the behavior described is not a bug.
Change the setting for App.DefaultWindow to NONE

Its Sunday - we’ll forgive this on a Sunday
Other days it gets marked PEBKAC
Nah - still a PEBKAC. I’m so used to using my Templates, I’ve forgotten simple things when setting up a new project.
