Here is a weird one, hope you can help!
I’m using the native Mac menu bar (many thanks!)…
There is a problem with re-activating the app after it has been minimized. Re-activating by clicking on the app icon on the dock shows a problem, whereas re-activating by using cmd-tab doesn’t show the problem.
Here is what I do to show the problem…
Selecting minimized app using the doc causes the problem:
… start my app (document-based, FWIW)
… minimize the app by clicking on minimize button in window title bar
… select different mac application
… click on my app icon on the doc, my app menu appears at the top
… the bad news is that all sub-menu items are greyed-out apart from “Quit” (and the one sub-menu pop-up that I “manually” added myself)…! i.e. file New etc. are not available.
Selecting minimized app using cmd-tab does not show the problem:
… start my app
… minimize the app
… select different application
… use cmd-tab to re-select my application [note that this is INSTEAD of clicking on my app icon on the doc!!], my app menu appears at the top
… all is OK with menu items e.g. under File
… note tha that if I’d previously restored using the dock, it’d still have the menu items greyed-out and I’d first have to restore the app window for the cmd-tab mechanism to work OK.
The reason this is a pain is that our users want the app minimized but with basic functionality still available to control it via the menu. They seem to be used to re-activiating an app by clicking its icon on the dock, rather than cmd-tabbing to it…!
Hoping this makes sense!!!
