[answered]Paint.net raises itself with no autoraise Xmouse


Recommended Posts

While using Xmouse without the autoraise functionallity on Windows 7, Paint.net raises itself when either the tools or the history windowlet loses focus.

Edit: the Paint.net window is only raised when the tools or history window is still fading out when the mouse cursor isn't on it anymore. When you wait for the window to fade out with the mouse cursor on the border of the window (aero enabled), and then move the cursor from the window, raising does not occur.

I think your best bet is to disable Xmouse with Paint.NET. I doubt Rick is going to provide support for that. He doesn't provide support for shell extensions and other non-default Windows installation add-ons.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

I'm not a programmer, but as I understand it, it's not something support should be provided for. By raising a window on it's own, paint.net is not playing by the rules. The window manager (some windows component) should manage windows.

Also note that this isn't some weird windows addon, but a normal feature in the Ease of Access Center, called 'Activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse' in Windows 7. The same feature exists in Vista.

Ah, I see what you're saying. I thought you'd downloaded some funky addon. :-P

I can't speak to your question now. I've reached the limit of my knowledge.

Xmouse does funky things with the input messages, and this collides with the funky things Paint.NET has to do to maintain its own input focus correctly.

I'm not going to fix this. I recommend simply not using Xmouse.
