Description Buovjaga 2015-06-17 08:51:01 UTC
Hover your mouse back and forth over the edge that allows you to resize the sidebar. See the hiding button flicker.

Windows-only.

tested under Win8.1x64 with a different tindebox build

I see no abnormal flicker... the hide/show sidebar button only turns from dark grey to light blue when the mouse cursor passes over it

could you post a screencast?

Don't go over the button itself, but only the resizing edge.

Reproduced in TB 39 build

that one is the button that turns light blue from grey (read comment)
I don't think it's the flickering that Beluga was talking about

That's exactly the flickering I'm talking about, if going over the resizing edge, not the button itself.
Comment 9 tommy27 2015-06-24 08:54:54 UTC
I'm on a different machine now running 5.0.0 RC1 under Win7x64 and I finally see the flicker when you hover over the resizing edge (not the button itself which is supposed to change color).

however I haven't seen that flicker using 5.1.0 alpha under Win8.1x64

maybe a Win7 specific bug?
Comment 10 Buovjaga 2015-06-24 10:15:41 UTC
Now tested on Win 8.1 32-bit.

The flicker can be seen, but it is not as regular as in Win 7.
Most of the time only the triangle in the button can be seen flickering slightly.

just retested... really no flicker for sure on Win8.1x64... this machine has a SSD whilst the Win7x64 machine I see the flicker has standard HD... but I'm not sure it can explain that.

Same result in a Win 10 virtual machine. Focus your eyes on the triangle and do a lot of back and forth hovering.

Comment 14 Buovjaga 2018-04-30 17:39:04 UTC
Hah! This is not actually Win-only: I am able to make it flicker on Linux, if I hover many times over the edge. GTK3 backend is immune to this, as expected.

Still repro the triangle flicker on Win.
