Description misheto 2010-01-18 14:33:46 UTC
Form Controls like Radio Button or Check Box flicker, when document is opened. 
I'll attach a simple example, where this behaviour can be seen. I've done tests
on Linux and Windows, on both OS it behaves the same. 
Another example, where this behaviour can be seen is in SDK Basic example

fixed in CWS dba321a

find more information about this CWS, like when it is available in the master
builds, in EIS, the Environment Information System:
Comment 12 jbf.faure 2010-01-21 06:53:02 UTC
Hi fs,
Another problem, surely linked with the flickering, is that the process
soffice.bin consume constantly ~ 10 - 15% of the CPU when doing nothing. 0% CPU
with rc1 and rc2 on the same test files. Is this problem gone with your fix ?

Kind regards. JBF
Comment 13 Frank Schönheit 2010-01-21 07:14:05 UTC
fs->msc: please verify in CWS dba321a. Please also verify that issue 108325,
whose original fix introduced this bug here, does not happen, again.
Comment 14 Frank Schönheit 2010-01-21 07:21:26 UTC
The CPU consumption indeed is also a symptom of the problem: Upon each repaint
of the form controls, a new repaint is scheduled, so that OOo constantly uses
one processor/core for nothing but repaints.

I once voted for the bug I found that flicker blocker.

If RC3 has been created for the minor problem for me to Sun Recording,
Why not make a RC4?

Why not correct the bugs already reported?

truly disappointed

i think an RC4 release with this fix would be a wise solution.

this bug is annoying... OOo 3.2 with this would be embarassing
Comment 21 Frank Schönheit 2010-01-22 08:08:38 UTC
targeting to 3.2
Comment 22 paulwolstenholme 2010-01-25 22:47:50 UTC
Similar issues seen with 3.2.0 RC3 (OOo320m10 build 9477) on win2k SP4:
Opening an existing database form (from 3.0.1 using hsqldb) causes soffice.exe
process to run at 60 - 90%.
In the case of one form, a text box, some formatted fields and some label fields
are all shifted left in a big jumble on top of each other. The other form I
tried didn't show this trait despite having been constructed in a similar manner.

Is this related?
Comment 23 paulwolstenholme 2010-02-01 22:35:00 UTC
The symptoms I reported are completely fixed in RC4.
