Annoying bug

Postby RJ5576 » Wed Jun 06, 2018 1:00 am

If I drag the mouse over a dialog box while holding down the right mouse button, or click in a dialog box while in look-around mode, I cannot get out of look-around mode without resetting the simulator.

@V12: his profile box on the right says he's using 2018.1.1...

@RJ5576: IIRC, this has been fixed in 2018.3.0... i think it has also been backported to 2018.2.2...

I haven't updated my profile, but I have recently updated to FG 2018.2.1.

there was an attempt to fix it for 2018.2.1 but that worked only partially... some more work on it was done and should be available, as noted, in 2018.2.2...

FWIW: part of this be due to the work being done to remove PUI and replace it with something modern and future-proof... part of the work, as i understand it, is ""conversion wrappers"" that take the PUI calls and convert them to the new stuff... this way folks are not hampered by the changes and their existing PUI code and menus will still work... later the wrappers may be removed and the whole new system exposed so that devs can (finally) switch to the new methods... by then, PUI should be gone... it hasn't been maintained or updated in a long time...
