Quick-Info pop-up remains visible when using Alt+Tab

SyntaxEditor Web Languages Add-on for WPF Forum

Posted 11 years ago by Craig - Varigence, Inc.
Version: 12.2.0573
Platform: .NET 4.0
Environment: Windows 8 (64-bit)

Repro Steps:

  1. Open the WPF Studio Sample Browser
  2. Open Visual Studio 2012
  3. Make VS 2012's dimensions larger than the Sample Browser 
  4. Place the Sample Browser above VS 2012 on your screen
  5. In the Sample Browser, select the SyntaxEditor product family and select the Xml Editor (Web Lang. Add-on) Demo
  6. Hover your mouse over the <colors> tag so a QuickInfo popup appears
  7. Press Alt+Tab and switch to VS 2012

Expected behavior:
The quick info pop-up should disappear as the Windows application switcher appears (just like VS Quick-Info pop-ups do)

Actual behavior:
The quick info pop-up remains visible after switching to VS 2012. Notice that neither moving your mouse nor clicking in VS 2012 causes the popup to go away. You're forced to return to the Sample Browser to make the popup close.

Hi Craig,

Our code currently hides it when focus moves but Alt+Tab doesn't trigger a focus move notification in WPF.  We have a TODO item to look into attaching to a containing Window to watch deactivate events, and I'll add your request to that.

In the meantime though, you can handle your Window's deactivate event and call editor.IntelliPrompt.CloseAllSessions(); That should close anything that is open.
