PDOXWIN forgets what's selected?

 PDOXWIN forgets what's selected?

There's this annoying problem in PDOXWIN since 1.0. Still is there. It seems
that sometimes he forget's what is selected, and when other objects are
selected it appears that more than one object is selected. This occurs
in both design mode and view mode for a form. I can live with it in
design mode, but In a table frame on a form, sometimes the problem
crops up, showing a field in a record highlited when it is not the
current record. The current one is hilit if it is different than the
'phantom' one, but if you move to the phantom, no records appear to
be hilit. So you see two or none.

Anyone experienced this and found a workaround?

In PDOXWIN 4.5 I have seen this once in design mode. Paradox forgot
to change the select frame once so one object became inverted:
it looked selected when it wasn't and when it was selected nothing seemed
to be selected.

        I have experienced this, and found that if you either scroll up or
down so that the article is not visible, the problem will subside (temporarily,
of course.)  You can also minimize the window, and then restore it, as this
sometimes works.  Finally, just saving the form/whatever, closing it, and then
re-opening it often works.

Good Luck!

I'm curious about this one, as I have experienced it several times.  How many
others have ran into this and found it to be an annoying pain?  Borland, are
you listening anymore?
