Re: popupmenu causes intuition freeze

Well, I've tracked down the problem, it was caused by a simple AllocSignal(-1) before popupmenu.class was even opened. I don't have time to create a test case right now, but AllocSignal() followed by the empty menu creation I posted earlier ought to show the problem. The signal does not need to be u...

Re: GUI improvement we need

Well, the first one is an easy fix, as the button is probably being redrawn with RefreshSetGadgetAttrs() which is forcing a refresh when one isn't needed. Simply use SetGadgetAttrs() on buttons that contain an image to sort out the double refresh problem. As for the others, I can't really do any mo...

Re: popupmenu causes intuition freeze

It's always difficult without working example code. Myself, I create the menu object and call PM_OPEN in the child process, and the result is stored some where where both the parent and child can access. I have had no problems with this so far. Ah, are you using a process then and not a task? I'm g...

Not sure, because both have been in development for years and I think were originally planned for 4.0.

Re: popupmenu causes intuition freeze

@rigo Since Update 3 didn't fix it, I've decided to try your suggestion. I've created a task which simply calls IDoMethod(PM_OPEN) for testing, but it gives me an error that I'm trying to call Open() from a task (I'm not, and I'm not sure why PM_OPEN would be either), and then promptly deadlocks exa...

Sadly a very quick test with Update 3 reveals that they aren't, or at least the fixes didn't make it into the update :-(

Re: Feature request: Workbench.prefs

Snapshotting icons onto absolute positions may have been a good idea in the past, when you rarely changed your Workbench screen resolution (most people used 640x256). But today the feature is rather counter-productive. Each time you change the screenmode (you bought a new graphics card; you changed...

Re: Amiga OS 4.1 & FastFileSystem SFS/00

Not that i want to blame MediaToolBox for choosing the wrong block size, but if FFS (not sure), JXFS and SFS RELIES on being used with a block size of 512 wouldn't it be possible to tell MediaToolBox to change it to a default of 512 as soon as those SF's are used? JXFS doesn't work at all with anyt...

Re: Suggestion: Click Cursor Position in CLI

What if you have typed Assign blah: "RAM Disk:blah/" Will your proposed feature stop at the space? At the ':'? at the quote? EIther way you do it, it doesn't really work. It's either a "select word" or a "select volume", in any case the use of such a feature is extreme...

Re: Application Package Woes

@chris I can't speak for anyone else, but I don't use the Lisp-based installer because it's another (and quite strange!) language to learn, and I'd rather use that time for programming. Fair enough, but it's actually easier than it looks! Installing using Python would not help in this case, since I...
