    Embeded program flashes

    I've seen an RR or Wondows behavior that I can't explain.

    I have a C# Windows Form application with webBrowser control that I embed in the normal method into an RR skin and it works just fine.

    However, on my development system where the RR window is in the upper right corner of the desktop, if I start a program from the desktop, the embedded C# program disappears and then after a second or two reappears under the program I started. I expect the started program to be on top but I don't expect the flashing of the embedded program.

    Interestingly, the RR skin in which the program is embedded doesn't disappear and reappear.

    I realize that virtually all RR users have RR take the entire screen and that this is just a curiosity, but if anyone has any thoughts I would appreciate them.

    Regards,
    Jim

    What RR does is:
    1-Find the window of your app to embed, if not found: do nothing
    2-Checks if the window is in the right size/position, if it is: do nothing
    3-Adjusts the size/position of the embedded app to match the defined in the skin

    The above is done about every second - If your other application is doing anything to the embedded app, this could be why you see it flashing. I know Mitch also added some advanced options for embedding apps so this could also have an effect on it for the better or worse.

    Some family medical issues will prevent me from doing much for the next week or so but I plan to re-install the 7-1 version just to verify that I didn't do something to break my plugin. That will atleast verify/or not, that something has changed.

    When I have "face time" I'll look you up on Skype.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Mitch,

    this must be something I changed in my plug-in because it now fails with the 7/1 release as well as the 10/1 release.

    I also verified that it fails (i.e., embedded app flashes) if I embed a Windows app like Notepad.

    For now I can live with it but since I don't like things like this lingering around, I will look at it when I get a chance.

    Thanks for the comments and offer of assistance.

    Regards,
    Jim
