Keyboard problem with File menu

Recommended Posts

Just noticed a problem with the File menu and I wanted to tip you guys on a solution.

I guess some menu items in this menu are toggled visible/not visible, and this causes the menu to scroll weirdly (at least on my system) (Hit Alt-F to access the File menu with the keyboard and then press the Up arrow to go to the Exit item).

This is a problem I had too in a .NET project and the solution was to dynamically add/remove the toolstripmenuitems instead of toggling the visible property true/false.

Actually I just had this happen in an XP virtual machine. Does not repro in Vista at all.

Edit: However in Vista the "View Plugin Load Errors" is visible (on my system). Probably only happens if you dont have this menu item, regardless of the OS. I've filed a bug.
