File window does not update

Postby jmangasarian2 » Sun May 04, 2008 5:09 pm

I found when I installed Zeus 3.96o on WindowXP the the contents of each file that is open does not show up. It is as if the window is not being painted. I tried to refresh the screen by moving the window off the screen and back on. It does not work. I tried closing and reopening the file. It did not work. The only thing that fixes it is when I close and reopen Zeus. I saw this in two cases. First when I first installed Zeus. The second was after I tried to FTP my project.

The contents of each file that is open does not show up. It is as if the window is not being painted.

When a document window stops painting it generally indicates that something unexpected (i.e an internal Zeus error) has gone wrong :(

On a few occasions I too have seen this happen, but unfortunately I was never able to easily replicate the problem at will. I think the problem is somehow timing related, which is why it is so difficult to replicate.

The next Zeus patch adds a few more internal locks and these will hopefully eliminate this timing error.

But if you find a way to easily replicate the bug please post the details ;)

Cheers Jussi

I think this bug has been fixed in the latest Zeus release found here: http://www.zeusedit.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2118
