[solved] TC 9.5b4 outlines in Dark mode comes and goes

Post by *petermad »

Scenario 1:
1. Start 64bit TC 9.5b4 and set it to Normal mode
2. Close TC - important!
3. Restart TC and enable Dark mode - the Status bar has an outline - see: https://madsenworld.dk/tcmd/outlinesstatus.png
4. Close TC and restart - the outlines are now gone - see: https://madsenworld.dk/tcmd/nooutlinestatus.png
Reproducable in Windows 7 but not Windows 10

Scenario 2:
1. Start 32bit TC 9.5b4 and set it to Normal mode
2. Close TC - important!
3. Restart TC and enable Dark mode - the Current directory bar and the Status bar has an outline - see: https://madsenworld.dk/tcmd/outlinecurrrentpath.png
4. Close TC and restart - the outlines are now gone - see: https://madsenworld.dk/tcmd/nooutlinecurrenpath.png
Reproducable for the Current path bar in both Windows 7 and Windows 10

In both scenarios the outlines stays gone on future restarts of TC, until step 1 - 3 is done again

Sorry, cannot reproduce. It's always there with classic theme here, and never there with Windows theme enabled.

Maybe this video helps -Windows 10, standard theme, 32bit TC with clean wincmd.ini file. https://madsenworld.dk/tcmd/dissapearingcurrentdiroutlines.mp4

Sorry for the slow video - my Windows 10 test-PC is pretty slow especially when recording a video.

I cannot show you video from Windows 7 - my WinCam program only supports Windows 10.

Maybe FastStone Capture (Shareware) is interesting for you, works on XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x and Windows 10.
You may try the software free for 30 days. It allows also to record screen activities and sound into video files.
It's very easy to use (I use it almost daily).

There are older versions available free for non-commercial use. Newer versions almost every year are available for free as a giveaway.

Personally, I would in any case prefer a current version --> see development history.

Aha.
I already bought the program in March 2008 for $19.95, at that time EUR €13.27 (today: €18.09).
The price in USD has remained unchanged since then.

The program is continuously developed further and I have been using the program very intensively since that time.

Would suggest we end this subject here.

I'm reworking this for beta 5, so please don't put any more time in reproducing this bug. I'm sure there will be new bugs in beta 5. :(
