Fixed: Alt key does not activate menu, Alt+ accelerators do not work

Post by dcapwlii » 16 Dec 2017 01:31

When I press an Alt key in 1.7.7 it activates a menu bar so that I can navigate through it with keyboard (like in any other native Windows program). But when I press Alt (or Alt+F, or Alt+E, for example) in 2.0.0 it just beeps. I am using 32-bit Windows XP SP3 and English/US keyboard layout.

Thanks, I can reproduce it. It also happens under Win8.1 German.

For some reason it works fine in the debug build, but not the release build. I'll investigate.

Found the bug, was due to an error in the toolbar code, that used a Char (=WideChar since D2009) as an AnsiChar. So part of it was not initialized in Release mode.

When the fix is in the download I'll update again.
