Getting a few annoying problems with a current project with standalones
on windows (ok on mac) using 2.6.1 & 2.7
I have invisible main stack which i create as a standalone. This stack
loads a splash stack which in turn loads various other module stacks
(including the one in which all interaction happens).
All the text in the dialog windows (ask or answer) are underlined, even
the input field.. do i need to define default text styles in the main
stack to be linked as an exe?
Another problem which happens after a varied period of use in the
standalone & rev ide is the cursor disappearing when within any stack or
ide windows and a small black square appearing either in the top left of
the screen or the top left of the current stack.. this then almost
immediately leads to more screen corruption and I have to restart the
ide or exe.
I thought it may be the way i had a invisible exe stack launching a
splash so i quickly threw together a brand new test launch & splash
stack using the same priciples, with a single ask button on the splash..
things worked ok
Tested on 4 pcs.. 2 win2000s & 2 xps.. all same problems. Again not
getting it on the macs.. Anyway first time i've encountered both.. I've
had a quick look thru my digest archives & bugzilla but haven't found
