Windows-over-Map Issue in version 4.9 - up to 4.9.3.3

Jan 26, 2015 at 9:28 AM
Hi folks,
when using version 4.9 - up to 4.9.3.3 in a custom application, the windows over the map are "frozen" - seems as if the redrawing is slowed down. You can see that behaviour easily when istalling the latest MapWinGIS version over the latest MapWindow version (4.8.8 i think), open the legend editor and drag it around over the map seeing it tracing itself, gradually slowing down...
Has someone a clue about that behaviour and maybe a solution for it?
Would be great to get any help...

Hi Thomas,

could you elaborate? I've just installed MW 4.8.8SR and then MapWinGIS 4.9.3 on top of it. Honestly I'm a bit surprised that MapWindow even starts after it since there were some changes that break backward compatibility in MapWinGIS 4.9. But it starts and can even display shapefiles and tiles, though grids fail as expected.

Now to the legend editor (docking window). When I'm dragging it over the map I see semi-transparent bluish rectangle, but no sign of tracing or slowing down (MapWinGIS map must not redraw itself during the operation I suppose). I'm testing it on Windows 8.1 x64.

Thanks,
Sergei
