On my windows xp/sp3 system if I were to start the stock audio plugin host demo and then click in the menubar and then begin mousing around all over the menu items and categories like a beginner will do as they learn what menu options are where - I can reliably if not predictably get the menu bar to ‘freeze’. It stays on-screen but is no longer paying attention to the mouse and the only way to clear it is to bring another application to the front (from the windows startbar) and then switch back to the juce application. At which point things clear up. I can always make it happen within say 15-20 seconds of ‘mousing all over the menus’ but haven’t yet found an exact sequence of ‘mousing around’ to trigger it.
Since I based my application from the audio plugin host my app has this problem as well and I just checked Jucer and I can break its menu bar as well. I noticed the juce application is ‘flickering’ in the windows start bar when this happens.
Has anybody else noticed this?
I’m pretty sure I’m using juce 1.53 (how do I find out exactly which version if I can’t remember?)
Clarification, by ‘mousing around’ I menu clicking once in the menubar to cause the menu to popdown, then without clicking begin moving the mouse from item to item, highlighting it, traversing into submenus and back out, then going back to the top and waving over another menu category (causing it to drop down) etc. In other words I’m only clicking the mouse once then just moving it randomly (and quickly) around to ‘see’ what’s available.
