Linux: Property Inspector sometimes renders transparent

Post by FourthWorld » Fri Nov 10, 2017 12:36 am

Have any of you seen this?:

Sometimes when I double-click an object to open the Property Inspector, that window opens with only the window border and title bar rendered; the content region appears transparent.

I'm seeing this with v9.0 DP 10 on Ubuntu 14.04.

I'd file a bug report, but it doesn't happen consistently enough to deliver a good recipe. If any of you have a recipe I'd love to hear it.

TIA -

Update: the problem began to be persistent across LC sessions, so I decided to see if it was persistent across OS sessions. After rebooting the machine, the issue is no longer evident.

I'll report back if I see this again. I've seen it off and on with v9dp10, and only in LC; no other programs seem to have issues drawing window contents.

As I continue diagnosing this, if any of you see anything like this please chime in.

I am not sure if this could be related but on Windows 10 with LiveCode 9-dp10 the property inspector often sizes itself to cut off all but the top couple of inches. It can be scrolled to bring the other items into view. I don't know how to consistently trigger it. Maybe the PI redrawing needs a general overlook.

Thanks, but what I'm seeing here is definitely a transparency problem rather than a resize problem:
