    Full Screen and system dialogs

    There is some weird behaviour whenever a system dialog (e.g. WLAN use in offline mode) appears on a full screen application. There is a blink because the status bar makes an attempt to appear. The the system dialog appears with its control bar. when dismissed, the whole thing blinks again (attempt to show a status and control bars) until the app goes back to full screen.

    I have experienced this problem in several applications. In some cases, I could solve it by developing custom dialogs instead of using system ones. But this is not always possible.
    I have tried things like statusPane->MakeVisible(aBool) in many parts of the code, but it does not solve the problem.

    How can I get full screen apps to work smoothly with system dialogs?

    you tried using SetExtentToWholeScreen() yet?

    Re: Full Screen and system dialogs

    I used SetExtentToWholeScreen().

    The problem was partially solved by adding SetExtentToWholeScreen() to HandleResourceChange().
    I was doing it in SizeChanged(), FocusChanged(), and got what I described in my post.
