Flashing
« on: February 10, 2024, 03:31:55 »
I reported this flashing (openning a tab flashes the window to white and back to dark then opens the tab window) under this https://forum.multicommander.com/forum/index.php/topic,4050.msg11515.html#msg11515 since I cant open that topic anymore I am posting this. I still have this issue in Win 11 13.5 2983

I feel like I might have found a culprit. This seems to be a Win 11 issue and other users of other apps report similar issue.


Here some people complaint about flashing in Foobar.

After digging around I ended up in this forum, I am not a dev but this seems to be relative to the issue?

I cannot recreate this.. And it is not the dubble buffer things, everything is drawn using that. That is standard.
The thing is that Windows do not really support darkmode of their old UI layer. and when a new window area is created. It is always white before it is redrawn. Normally there are no refresh of the UI between this. So you will not see it.
So not sure why it happening for you. Might be that you gfx card are too fast or something. I don't know. I cannot test it since I cannot recreate it

Here is a video demoing it. I am not sure either, I thought I would report it anyway, maybe some others users might have the same issue, they can follow up here.

It is really a minor issue. How often are your opening new tabs..  :) annoying yes. but does not really affect the functions. :)
Also, I cannot check why it is happening since I cannot reproduce it.

Not just that, but pressing Win-E to open Windows explorer seems to be flashing MC as well, which is weird. Anyway just reporting it like I said in case other users have similar issue.
