Nested Window with "Menu" on true makes other elements unusable?
« on: February 10, 2011, 04:03:32 AM »

Maybe this is a bug. I made a imitation of a Computer Desktop through a Window that has lots of Nested Windows for different Areas. To control it I made a Taskbar with a Startmenu that is also a nested window and I tried to set the Startmenu Window Property "Menu" to true in order to hide the Startmenu again if the User clicks somewhere else on the Fake-Computer Screen.

Unfortunately I noticed once I did that, all other elements in the Parent Window stopped working alltogether. Doesn't matter if its another nested window or just a button in the parent window, they all just don't accept any Mouse Input anymore except in the Startmenu Window that has "Menu" to true. If I click outside the Startmenu to make it disappear those other elements still don't accept Inputs.

Is this Intentional Behavior or a Bug?

I don't necessarily require a solution (how's that for a change!), I'd just like to know if this has another cause than a potential screwup on my side ;)

I don't think nested windows were ever intended to support the .Menu notion. Menus should always be separate top-level windows.

I understand. Time to do some new single-windows to load seperately ;)
By the way I have found out that the "Editor" textfield in such a nested window causes the same problems. <- Sorry, not fully true. It happened in a new window too but only because I forgot to have it go SystemExclusive.

Thanks for your fast reply.
