    Hi guys

    Minor bug to report in the latest SVN builds of MediaPortal. On changing between full screen mode and windowed mode I'm seeing an unexpected context menu on the first attempt to access the context menu after the change. That explanation is a little hard to understand, so here are precise instructions to reproduce:

    1. Start MediaPortal (either full screen or windowed mode).
    2. Start any TV channel.
    3. Switch to "full mode" (TV takes up the entire window/screen, no menu visible).
    4. Right click to show the context menu.
    5. Switch to the opposite mode using alt + enter (windowed mode if you were in full screen, or full screen if you were in windowed mode). It doesn't matter if you close the context menu or stop TV - the bug will still show.
    6. Start TV again. It doesn't matter if you use the context menu or choose a different channel.
    7. Switch to "full mode".
    8. Right click to show the context menu.

    After step 8 you should see a "select album" context menu as shown in the attached screenshot instead of the channel selection menu. If you close that menu and right click again you will see the expected channel selection menu.

    This is a minor bug that is relatively difficult to reproduce, however I thought I should report it in the interest of getting a high quality 1.2.0b.

    Do you know when it started happening? I can say you try reverting r27508.

    Although, this use case is so twisted I wouldn't be surprised the bug was present since early days :) But it doesn't hurt to try to revert the mentioned revision :)

    Hi SilentException

    Do you know when it started happening?
    No, unfortunately I don't. I tend to switch between windowed mode and full screen quite a lot as my PC is multi-purpose (dev, HTPC, gaming, internet etc.), however I've never noticed this before.

    I can say you try reverting r27508.
    Will do tomorrow (I should be asleep!).

    Although, this use case is so twisted I wouldn't be surprised the bug was present since early days :) But it doesn't hurt to try to revert the mentioned revision :)
    I know what you mean - a "curly" one. :p

    I'll report back after trying 27508...

    AW: Context menu issue

    This happens since ages when the skin xmls are read again when changing fullscreen/windowed mode or (in my case) using MyRefresh (as a skinner I do that always :D)
    I think it´s nothing to worry about ;)
