Forums » Prof-UIS General Discussion » Righ-clicking title bar then left-clicking to drag fails (with Aero theme) Collapse All

The following issue was observed with Prof-UIS v2.82 (and is seemingly still valid in v2.92 based on the current downloadable samples) when an Aero theme is active:

1. Launch any of the Prof-UIS samples.

2. Right-click the application’s title bar. The Window/System menu appears.

3. Left-click the title bar (without dismissing the Window menu) and drag the window.

PROBLEM: The window won’t be dragged.

WORKAROUND: Left-click the title bar and release, then left-click and drag.

As mentioned above, the issue was observed only when an Aero theme is active. So, for instance, step 3 works as expected if the Basic or Classic themes are active. The issue was seen under under Windows 7 64-bit but may also be valid under Windows 7 32-bit and Vista.

Please let me know when you have any information regarding this issue.

Thanks in advance.
