Hi to all,
During a test in Linux of a program that I’m writing for Windows, I noticed that the Resizing event of the main window does not seem to be detected. If possible I would like to know if this is connected to a my programming error or if it is a known issue for the version of Xojo for Linux (I’m using Xubuntu 12.04 with VirtualBox). In the link attached there is a small example program that reproduces my problem. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/79819428/ResizeTest.xojo_binary_project
Same problem on Debian 7.5.
It seems that the “resizing” event is not fired at all on Linux.
Also, during window resize the “resized” event is called every time you stop dragging the mouse even if you not release the mouse button.
It’s a bug?
Good walk around Michel, there is only the need to avoid the “resized” event (that still fire) until the mouse is released after the resize.
Another strange behavior in Linux is that the window (and all enclosed controls) are deactivated during window resize or move, thus as an example, if you have custom controls based on canvas they’re redraw using disabled apperance like when a window is not the frontmost.
It seems that other linux apps do not deactivate things during window move o resize.
Any walkaround for this?
Finally, my question is: are these two things bugs or intended behaviors on Linux?
