Palette style window

John
Hi,

   When I run an app in the IDE, stacks with a style of “palette” auto hide when another application is brought to the front.  This is the expected behavior.  When I build the app, the windows do not auto hide, they become disabled.  Am I expected to script the auto hide behavior or is this a bug?  I am running LC 7 RC2 under OS 10.9.5.

Thanks,
John

This sounds like an issue with the hidePalettes global property.  It
should default to true on OS X, and false on Windows and Linux (it has
no effect on Linux at all at this time).

If you're finding it defaulting to false on OS X then according to the
Dictionary that would be a bug, so please file a report against it so it
can be addressed before v7 goes final:

   Thanks Richard, I didn’t know (I guess I should have searched) that there was a property for this.  If I add:

set the hidePalettes to true

to the openStack handler, the built app works correctly.  Bug report (http://quality.runrev.com/show_bug.cgi?id=13684) submitted.

Thanks,
John

Re: Palette style window

John
  If any one is interested, there is a related bug.  When palette windows are hidden and redrawn, the redraw order of the windows reverses causing any overlapped widows to be positioned incorrectly. Submitted as: http://quality.runrev.com/show_bug.cgi?id=13685 .

Thanks,
John
