I develop an application running under Solaris 2.8 and 2.10. I
have a Solaris machine without a screen so my tests are done from
a linux powered PC with KDE as the desktop manager. I do the
testing on another site with Solaris machines using either CDE or
KDE as window managers.
I encounter a quite strange behavior when using modal dialogs :
- when used under KDE they act as specified : no events occurs in
parent window and the dialog stays on top even if I clik on
them (even on the title bar).
- when used under CDE : no events occurs in parent window *but*
clicking on its title bar brings it to the front hiding the
dialog and leave my users whining about the application being
unresponsive (of course the dialog is still happily waiting
them hidden under the parent).
Have anyone ever heard anything about that kind of problems ?
I've searched bugzilla for gtk to no avail. I know it surely is
not a perl-related bug but if any of you can point me in the
right direction or tell me "yeah, cde is crap, forget about it".
I have read and reread the docs (perl and C) but I can't find a
definitive answer about windows managers handling or not modal
windows like dialogs.
P.S.: Thanks again for your work and your presence on this
list. I'll never thank you enough.
P.P.S.: About Elysee's quotes in mupet's sigs: what a nice person
to live with she seems to be :)
