Everything started when one of my users send me a video showing how a ModalWindow disappeared behind the main window when hovering this main window. And we know that a modal window must deactivate the main window.
I tried to reproduce this behaviour but I couldn’t. Probably mi version of OX (El Capitan 10.11.6) was not the same as his.
But while I was trying it I discovered this weird thing: It exist a MouseExit direction event!
This is how I detected it:
Open a ModalWindow.
Hover the main window and nothing happens. That is what is expected.
Hover the ModalWindow and exit it through top, left or right sides (north, west, est). Nothing happens --> OK!
Hover the ModalWindow and exit it through bottom side (south). Main window MouseMove event is fired --> This is not correct.
On Windows, this happens in any of the sides. It’s worse but at least is coherent.
I’ve tried to reproduce this in a simple example but I couldn’t.
That’s why I created this video to show the problem:
My workaround at this moment is putting this code at the beginning of the main window MouseMove event: for i As Integer = 0 to WindowCount - 1
if window(i).Frame = 1 Then ' modal windowl
Thank you for your observations.
The video shows the IDE coming in front because I’ve put break on the main window MouseMove event. So, it shows the problem I’m mentioning. And pay attention to the fact that this doesn’t happen when I move out North, East or West.
And I agree with you that this can not be reproduced in a small test. I’ve already said it in my post.
That’s why I created the video.
