Options menu flashes constantly
« on: March 08, 2017, 07:16:22 pm »
Regards
 
    I just installed Lazarus 1.6.4 on my laptop with Windows 10. Previously uninstall the latest version under which I was working (1.6). When you finish installing and starting the IDE for the first time everything works wonderfully. Once I started to add the components that I use commonly (LazReport, FortesReport, IBX, Zoes Lib among others) the options menu started to flash or constantly redraw when I hit the bar where the installed controls are, however, if I select any option Menu fails to do so, or if I open a form to work on it, but I just give the option to Close All in the File menu, it starts flashing again.

    In the accompanying image, highlight in yellow the constantly flashing options menu
   
    Any suggestions to avoid this problem as it is quite uncomfortable to work in this way.

   Thank you for the help you can provide

   Sincerely,

  Ever Delgado

It may be caused by an installed package. Try to find out which one - return to basic Lazarus installation and then install packages one-by-one to see which one caused it.

This looks like one bug which exist in 1.6.4 but absent in trunk.

Reproducing:
Close Source editor's tabs one-by-one. After you close last tab, editor's window closed and main menu begin flashing.

Solution:
Just open something in editor.
