MouseMove event problem with MDI application


I have a problem with MouseMove event which doesn’t fire in MDI applications with XOJO 2018 R1.1

To see it, try to run the example “CanvasDragRect” with MDI option on.

Known bug ?

Regardless if it is a bug or not… MDI style applications have been phased out years ago (including by Microsoft), and I’m actually surprised that Xojo still even supports their creation. So if it is a bug, don’t expect it to be any where close to the top of the “To be Fixed list”

Already has. <>

Thanks Dave and Greg.

A possible workaround is to use a timer to monitor the position of the mouse cursor with System.MouseX and System.MouseY.

We have a client insisting on an MDI application. I’m tempted to come up with a ‘background’ window to cover the desktop because that’s really what they’re asking for.
