[2.4.0] Windows Repair bug with taskbar
« on: February 14, 2014, 09:28:18 AM »
I'm unable to right-click on taskbar to close Windows Repair window.
It just doesn't do anything.

It works on Registry Backup, so I suppose it should be easy to fix.

Actually it isnt an easy fix.

The program uses borderless forms and in Windows that means that the right click on the taskbar doesnt work.

I had to use a API type of hack in the registry backup program in order to make Windows give the right click option back. And it works, as long as the Window is resizable.

With the Windows repair I made the windows resizable so the API trick doesn't work on it to give it the right click menu.

No way to change it, it is how Windows handles border less forms, why they do it that way I dont know but I dont have control over it.
