Hi,

I have a really weird behavior with a custom BarButton.
In the UpdateState (that is called by my barManager) I update the "checked" property but the button isn't redrawn.
In order to view the new state (checked or not) I need to put the cursor of the mouse over the button...

Any idea to solve my problem ?

Thanks for your help

Regards

Stéphane

    public class ToggleShowAnalogicCardsCommand : BarButtonCommand
    {
        public ToggleShowAnalogicCardsCommand(string x_name, string x_text, int x_imageIndex) : base(x_name, x_text, x_imageIndex)
        {
            this.Checked = true;
        }

        public override void ResetCheckable()
        {
            this.Checkable = true;
        }

        public override void UpdateState(BarCommandLinkEventArgs x_e)
        {
            this.Checked = this.physicalIoView.showAnalogicCards;
            x_e.Handled = true;
        }

        protected override void OnClick(BarCommandLinkEventArgs x_e)
        {
            this.physicalIoView.showAnalogicCards = !this.physicalIoView.showAnalogicCards;
            x_e.Handled = true;
        }
    }

If I manually call the .Invalidate it works fine but I don't understand why I have to do that...

        public override void UpdateState(BarCommandLinkEventArgs x_e)
        {
            if (x_e.CommandLink != null)
            {
                this.Checked = this.physicalIoView.showAnalogicCards;
                x_e.CommandLink.BarControl.Invalidate(ActiproSoftware.WinUICore.InvalidationLevels.Element, ActiproSoftware.WinUICore.InvalidationTypes.Paint);
            }
            x_e.Handled = true;
        }

Stéphane,

There is code in the Checked property setter to repaint related links. So it should be working.

If you think there is a problem, please put together a simple sample project that shows the issue and e-mail it over to our support address. Thanks!
