Some weird things appear in omnis 8 :

A window - that was perfectly "normal" before — suddenly disappeared !

Not only it does not show when run (instance = invisible) but also when the format is open from the browser (class = invisible).

I did not find a $visible property.

Height, width, left and top where correct.

When I click on "modified" in the browser both the component Store window and the property manager windows shows — but not the window.

If I control-click where the invisible window must be, I can open the Field List window and clicking on the objects in this window bring the correct properties in the property manager.

If I change the style property from kTitle to kDialog : the window shows. I save and close and then click modify in the browser : and ... yes the class is still invisible !

I have never seen that.

I have made a small library with this window. But I do not know how to make it available.

I have no Omnis technical support so I can't send this to them.

Have you an idea ?
