BUG: Combo Boxes in DS_SYSMODAL Dialog Boxes

Q74507BUG: Combo Boxes in DS_SYSMODAL Dialog Boxes

When a combo box with the CBS_DROPDOWN or CBS_DROPDOWNLIST style is used inside a system modal dialog box, it causes the following problem in Windows versions 3.0 and 3.1:

An item cannot be selected from the drop-down list box by clicking it with the mouse. The original selection remains in the edit control or static-text control.

Using a combo box with the CBS_DROPDOWN or CBS_DROPDOWNLIST style within a system modal dialog box in Windows version 3.0 causes the following problems:


  1. The drop-down list box cannot be closed by clicking on a part of the list box that lies outside the dialog box.
  2. The parts of the drop-down list box that lie outside the dialog box are not erased when the drop-down list box is closed.



BUG: PostScript Driver Version 3.4 Returns Incorrect Page Size

Q76364BUG: PostScript Driver Version 3.4 Returns Incorrect Page Size

In version 3.4 of the PostScript printer driver, when the DC_PAPERSIZE index is specified in the DeviceCapabilities function, the width of the paper is returned for both the x and y coordinates in each POINT structure. This function should return the height and width of each supported paper size.



BUG: Protected-Mode GlobalCompact() Return Not Free Memory

Q76686BUG: Protected-Mode GlobalCompact() Return Not Free Memory

When Windows is running in one of its protected modes, the value returned by the GlobalCompact() API does not accurately reflect the amount of free memory available in the system.

In enhanced mode, Windows can swap memory objects to disk. This process takes a long time relative to accessing an object in memory. Therefore, GlobalCompact() returns the amount of memory available without performing any paging.

In standard mode, GlobalCompact() never reports more than 1 megabyte (MB) of memory free because of a memory allocation limit on the 80286 chip.



BUG: Text Formatting Lost When Edit Text Dialog Box Used

BUG: GetModuleFileName Returns Relative File Path

Q85330BUG: GetModuleFileName Returns Relative File Path

When the GetModuleFileName() function returns a reference to a dynamic-link library (DLL) file, the reference is relative (not fully qualified) under the following circumstances:


  • One of the directory references in the MS-DOS PATH environment variable is relative. Assume that the relative directory reference refers to drive X.
  • An application is implicitly linked to a DLL. The DLL is installed in the current (default) directory of drive X.
  • The application is installed in a directory other than the one in which the DLL is installed.



BUG: System Menu Wrong for CS_NOCLOSE-Style MDI Child

Q85331BUG: System Menu Wrong for CS_NOCLOSE-Style MDI Child

When an application registers a window class with the CS_NOCLOSE style and creates a multiple document interface (MDI) child window using the class, the menu items in the child window's system menu are incorrect. Specifically, the Switch To option appears where the Next option belongs. Choosing Switch To activates the Windows Task Manager.



BUG: Buttons Painted Incorrectly After Color Changed

Q85593BUG: Buttons Painted Incorrectly After Color Changed

When the Colors application in the Control Panel is used to change the button shadow color to white, all push button windows are painted incorrectly. Specifically, the Button Shadow and Button Highlight colors are not painted at all.



BUG: SETCOLORTABLE Escape Disables Dithering

Q85596BUG: SETCOLORTABLE Escape Disables Dithering

When the VGAPAL video driver is installed on a system, once an application calls the SETCOLORTABLE escape to change an entry in the color table associated with a device context, Windows does not create any dithered brushes for that device context. Instead, Windows returns the solid brush that most closely matches the requested color.



BUG: GetGlyphOutline Returns Blank Bitmap

Q85598BUG: GetGlyphOutline Returns Blank Bitmap

In the Microsoft Windows graphical environment, when an application calls the GetGlyphOutline() function to retrieve the bitmap for a glyph and the lpmat2 parameter points to a matrix that magnifies the glyph, a blank bitmap is returned.

BUG: Ampersand in Menu Item Is Not Converted

Q110713BUG: Ampersand in Menu Item Is Not Converted

If a menu item has tabbed or right-justified text that contains a mnemonic access character, an ampersand ("&") will appear in front of the desired access character and the character will not be underlined.

If the menu item has a cascading menu associated with it, the right- justified text may partially overwrite the arrow that indicates the presence of a submenu.



BUG: SetWindowPlacement and ptMin.x or ptMax.x = -1

Q110793BUG: SetWindowPlacement and ptMin.x or ptMax.x = -1

Passing an X coordinate value of -1 to SetWindowPlacement causes the parameter to be ignored. If ptMinPosition.x is set to -1, SetWindowPlacement won't reset the minimized window coordinate; this is also true for ptMaxPosition.x. This was undocumented in the Windows 3.1 SDK documentation.



BUG: MDI Child Window's "Minimize" System Menu Disabled

Q110795BUG: MDI Child Window's "Minimize" System Menu Disabled

After creating a new multiple document interface (MDI) child window in an MDI application, the child window's Minimize System menu option will be disabled after the following actions:


  1. The MDI child window is created and in the topmost z-order.
  2. The user accesses the MDI child window's System menu through the shortcut keys: ALT+SPACE, RIGHT ARROW.

These actions will cause the child window's System menu to appear with the Minimize menu option disabled. This behavior can be demonstrated with File Manager. From File Manager's Window menu, choose New Window. Next, press ALT+SPACE and then press the RIGHT ARROW key to bring up the new window's System menu. The Minimize option will be disabled.

NOTE: The Minimize menu item is not disabled if the System menu is accessed through the ALT+"-" (minus) shortcut key or the mouse. Also, the Minimize menu item is not disabled if the window is moved.

BUG: Size of Owner-Draw Drop-Down Combo Box in Dialog Is Wrong

Q111096BUG: Size of Owner-Draw Drop-Down Combo Box in Dialog Is Wrong

When creating an owner-draw drop-down combo box in a dialog box, the size of the static portion is not the same as a non-owner-draw combo box in the same dialog box. WM_MEASUREITEM is not being processed, and therefore the size of the owner-draw combo box and non-owner-draw combo box should be the same.



BUG: SetWindowPos() on an Iconic Window and its Caption

Q111335BUG: SetWindowPos() on an Iconic Window and its Caption

SetWindowPos() is called on a minimized window to either move or hide the window. When moving, the window is moved but the caption is left behind. When Hiding, the window is hidden but the caption is still visible.



BUG: R2_XORPEN Binary ROP Code Ignored for Wide Pens

Q111336BUG: R2_XORPEN Binary ROP Code Ignored for Wide Pens

If a wide pen is selected in a device context and SetROP2() is called to set the binary raster-operation (ROP) code to R2_XORPEN, the desired effect is not achieved for ellipses, arcs, roundrects, or rectangles. The ROP is basically ignored.



BUG: Pie() and Arc() Functions Fail with a Wide Pen

Q111337BUG: Pie() and Arc() Functions Fail with a Wide Pen

When creating a wide (multiple pixel) pen and drawing a reasonably large object, the drawing function returns 0 (zero) or does not draw anything. Choosing a thin (single pixel) pen or choosing a pen smaller than X pixels corrects the problem.



BUG: Vector Font Rotation Skewed with Non-Top-Left Alignment

Q111338BUG: Vector Font Rotation Skewed with Non-Top-Left Alignment

Vector fonts do not rotate properly with a text alignment set to other than the top left.

To reproduce this problem, create a logical font for the Script vector font. Call SetTextAlign() to set the text alignment to TA_BASELINE and TA_CENTER. Rotate the font, perhaps in a whirl pattern as the FONTEST sample does. Note that the rotation axis is skewed in the northwest- southeast direction. This problem occurs in all mapping modes.



BUG: Text Truncated in Edit Control

Q111341BUG: Text Truncated in Edit Control

Copying and pasting a very large block of text in a multiline edit control may result in part of the text being truncated or some of the text being misaligned. This problem is more likely to happen when using a large size font instead of the default font for the edit control.



BUG: LineTo() Endcaps Misaligned with Large Pen Width

Q111576BUG: LineTo() Endcaps Misaligned with Large Pen Width

If LineTo() is used with a wide pen selected, the endcaps are misaligned with the line; they are skewed at an angle relative to the line.



BUG: Rotated TrueType Font Repaints Many Times

Q111579BUG: Rotated TrueType Font Repaints Many Times

BUG: Some ROP Codes Cause Inconsistent Polygon() Line Segments

Q111580BUG: Some ROP Codes Cause Inconsistent Polygon() Line Segments

When a ROP (raster operation) such as R2_XORPEN or R2_NOT is used with the Polygon() function, the line segments may be inconsistent; they may appear highlighted or ragged when they should appear smooth. This may be more apparent when the polygon is filled with a gray brush (80h).



BUG: Pie() Vertex Not Drawn Completely with Wide Pen

Q111581BUG: Pie() Vertex Not Drawn Completely with Wide Pen

When calling Pie() with a wide pen selected, the vertex of the pie slice is not drawn correctly. The wide lines do not meet at the vertex.



BUG: Arc() Not Drawn Completely with a Wide Pen

Q111582BUG: Arc() Not Drawn Completely with a Wide Pen

When calling Arc() with a wide pen selected, occasionally there will be an unfilled line in the third quadrant of the arc.



BUG: Occasional Gap Between Adjacent Pie() Wedges

Q111584BUG: Occasional Gap Between Adjacent Pie() Wedges

If the Pie() function is used to draw two pie wedges with the same bounding rectangle and the end point of the first wedge is equal to the start point of the second wedge, there can be a gap between adjacent wedges. This gap only occurs occasionally, and with certain pie sizes and start-and-end points.



BUG: GetRasterizerCaps Returns Zero When TrueType Is Disabled

Q111586BUG: GetRasterizerCaps Returns Zero When TrueType Is Disabled

When TrueType is disabled from the Control Panel, GetRasterizerCaps() returns zero (failure) instead of clearing the TT_ENABLED flag in the RASTERIZER_STATUS structure.



BUG: _lread() Functions Incorrectly When No Floppy in Drive

Q111587BUG: _lread() Functions Incorrectly When No Floppy in Drive

Using the function _lread() to read a floppy disk when there is no disk in the floppy drive results in the System error-message box "Cannot Read from Drive..." with Retry and Cancel buttons. If the Cancel button is clicked, _lread() returns, indicating incorrectly that it read the number of bytes requested. Instead, it should return -1, indicating failure.



BUG: OpenFile() Doesn't Handle Forward Slash ("/") Character

Q111588BUG: OpenFile() Doesn't Handle Forward Slash ("/") Character

OpenFile() does not correctly handle paths beginning with a forward slash character ("/") (for example, as in "x:/").



BUG: Brush Misaligned in PaintRgn()

Q111589BUG: Brush Misaligned in PaintRgn()

In a mapping mode other than MM_TEXT with the background mode set to TRANSPARENT, when calling PaintRgn() to paint a nonrectangular region with a hatched brush, the brush is misaligned.



BUG: Some TrueType Character Pairs Run Together on VGA

Q111590BUG: Some TrueType Character Pairs Run Together on VGA

On some displays such as the standard VGA display that ships with Windows 3.1, certain TrueType font character pairs do not have any space between them and run together. For example, when using the Arial TrueType font at a point size of 14 or greater, the characters "f7" don't have any space between them.



BUG: IsBadStringPtr() Reports Bad String as Valid

Q111591BUG: IsBadStringPtr() Reports Bad String as Valid

Under a particular condition, IsBadStringPtr() will report that a bad string is valid. If the pointer passed to IsBadStringPtr() refers to a block of memory of size 0xFFFF and is filled with all nonzero data, IsBadStringPtr() returns 0.



BUG: DeleteObject() Generates Debug Errors in WEP

Q111592BUG: DeleteObject() Generates Debug Errors in WEP

Freeing GDI objects in the Windows Exit Procedure (WEP) of a dynamic-link library (DLL) will generate errors from the debug version of Windows 3.1. The errors are incorrectly generated if the application has an implicit link to the DLL and the application is terminating.



BUG: DPMI Function 0203h Does Not Report Error

Q111593BUG: DPMI Function 0203h Does Not Report Error

Using the DOS Protected Mode Interface (DPMI) function 0203h (set processor exception handler vector) to set an exception handler does not report an error (carry flag set) if the selector:offset pair is invalid.



BUG: Dr. Watson Fails to Write Log File

Q111596BUG: Dr. Watson Fails to Write Log File

Assume that the drive for the Windows directory is substituted using the MS- DOS SUBST command. For example:

subst w: c:\win31

Under this condition, Dr. Watson fails to write to its log file, either the default DRWATSON.LOG or any other changed log filename. In fact, when the Dr. Watson icon is double-clicked, the message box that follows shows the log filename as W:\\DRWATSON.LOG, which is incorrect.



BUG: Debug Kernel Ignores Fatal Exits When OutputTo=

Q111597BUG: Debug Kernel Ignores Fatal Exits When OutputTo=

By default, the Windows debugging kernel sends its debug messages to the AUX device (which maps to the COM1 port). When the debug output from the Windows kernel is redirected by using OutputTo=NUL or OutputTo=<filename> in the [DEBUG] section of the SYSTEM.INI file, Fatal Exit messages are ignored automatically.



BUG: Opaque Rectangle Too Small on Rotated TrueType Fonts

Q111598BUG: Opaque Rectangle Too Small on Rotated TrueType Fonts

When a TrueType font is rotated, the text background is too small to completely enclose the glyphs; the same text unrotated is enclosed.



BUG: Character Background Is Not Painted Correctly

Q111599BUG: Character Background Is Not Painted Correctly

When text is displayed on a window with a background different than the background of the DC (used to display the text), slivers will display between the characters. The slivers seem to occur only between certain character combinations, such as "Th".

This problem is only evident with some drivers, such as the standard VGA.



BUG: Polygons Drawn with Pens of Odd Width (> 5) Misalign

Q111600BUG: Polygons Drawn with Pens of Odd Width (> 5) Misalign

When drawing frames with Polygon(), if the pen width results in an odd number of pixels (and therefore cannot be centered exactly on its coordinates), the extra pixel of width goes up and/or to the left for widths greater than 5 pixels, whereas it correctly goes down and to the right for widths less than or equal to 5 pixels.



BUG: Misleading Default Pushbutton Painting

Q111601BUG: Misleading Default Pushbutton Painting

Under some conditions in Windows 3.0 and Windows 3.1, more than one pushbutton (or Command button)(style BS_PUSHBUTTON) may be painted with the dark border used to designate a default pushbutton. A default pushbutton is the pushbutton designated to be activated when the user presses the ENTER key.



BUG: GetPrivateProfileInt() May Not Read Correct Value

Q111602BUG: GetPrivateProfileInt() May Not Read Correct Value

If GetPrivateProfileInt() is used to read a number that has preceding white space, the value returned may be incorrect. For example, if the .INI file entry is as follows, GetPrivateProfileInt() may return 0 (zero):

MyValue= 5


BUG: GlobalCompact() May Return an Inaccurate Value

Q111603BUG: GlobalCompact() May Return an Inaccurate Value

BUG: LB_SETTOPINDEX Doesn't Conform to Documentation

Q111647BUG: LB_SETTOPINDEX Doesn't Conform to Documentation

Code written to handle a return of LB_ERR does not function properly.

The online documentation for LB_SETTOPINDEX states that the result is LB_ERR if an error occurs. However, when an error occurs, LB_SETTOPINDEX returns with a value of 0 (zero) rather than LB_ERR.



BUG: EM_CANUNDO Returns Zero After EM_REPLACESEL

Q111648BUG: EM_CANUNDO Returns Zero After EM_REPLACESEL

EM_CANUNDO returns 0 (zero) after text in an edit control has been set or replaced using EM_REPLACESEL. EM_CANUNDO should return nonzero, and EM_UNDO should undo the change.



BUG: Left Part of Character Is Clipped with ExtTextOut/TextOut

Q111649BUG: Left Part of Character Is Clipped with ExtTextOut/TextOut

The left part of a TrueType character such as an italic "f" is clipped.



BUG: DrawFocusRect() Doesn't Work in MM_LOMETRIC Mode

Q111650BUG: DrawFocusRect() Doesn't Work in MM_LOMETRIC Mode

If DrawFocusRect() is called when the mapping mode is MM_LOMETRIC, no rectangle is drawn.

DrawFocusRect() is documented to take logical units and works properly in MM_TEXT mapping mode. However, if the mapping mode is changed to MM_LOMETRIC, as in the following code fragment, DrawFocusRect() called with an appropriate rectangle (logical units) does not work. Calling Rectangle() with the same rectangle does work.

   case WM_PAINT:
         hDC = BeginPaint(hWnd, &ps);

            SetRect(&rc, 0,0,100,100);
            DrawFocusRect(hDC, &rc);      // Works as documented.

            SetMapMode(hDC, MM_LOMETRIC);
            SetRect(&rc, 1,-200,100,-300);
            DrawFocusRect(hDC, &rc);     // Doesn't do anything.
       Rectangle(hDC, rc.left, rc.top, rc.right, rc.bottom); // Works

            EndPaint(hWnd, &ps);
            break; 

BUG: GetGlyphOutline() with GGO_BITMAP Fails with Large Scale

Q111651BUG: GetGlyphOutline() with GGO_BITMAP Fails with Large Scale

Calling GetGlyphOutline() for a bitmap and passing a large X or Y scaling factor in the transformation matrix causes the return value to not properly track the bitmap size.

For example, Times New Roman Regular 72 point "1", with a scaling factor of 4.0 in eM11 of the transformation matrix, returns a black box of 100,64. This requires a bitmap of at least 800 bytes but GetGlyphOutline() only returns 256. The native buffer is returned with no problems.



BUG: Edit Controls and WS_CLIPCHILDREN Function Differently

Q111652BUG: Edit Controls and WS_CLIPCHILDREN Function Differently

Unnecessary painting is done when an edit control window is created with the WS_CLIPCHILDREN style bit set.



BUG: Printer Driver Receives "bigfonts" When Not Supported

Q111653BUG: Printer Driver Receives "bigfonts" When Not Supported

If the installed display driver of a Windows 3.1 installation supports raster fonts that are greater than 64K, then any printer driver on the system is expected to support the fonts, even if [GetDeviceCaps(hPrnDC, RASTERCAPS) & RC_BIGFONT] returns NULL for the printer driver.



BUG: StretchDIBits Not Correctly Stretching RLE DIBs w/ Jumps

Q111654BUG: StretchDIBits Not Correctly Stretching RLE DIBs w/ Jumps

Calling StretchDIBits() to stretch an RLE device-independent bitmap (DIB) with jumps in it results in random garbage being displayed.



BUG: StretchBlt() Does Not Perform Palette Translations

Q111729BUG: StretchBlt() Does Not Perform Palette Translations

Normally, the StretchBlt() function performs a palette translation when the destination and source bitmaps do not contain the same color format or palette. When the destination rectangle is the exact size of the source rectangle (no stretching is performed), the palette translation is not performed.



BUG: TabbedTextOut in Metric Mapping Mode Working Incorrectly

Q111862BUG: TabbedTextOut in Metric Mapping Mode Working Incorrectly

When using TabbedTextOut() in one of the metric mapping modes, a rectangle is displayed in the current background color above the text that is displayed. This rectangle is the width and height of the line of text. The text is displayed with a background that is the current background color. However, the space between the text (where the tab is) is not displayed with a backgroun
