Cursor flickering in WeBuilder 2015

Postby Oliver » Wed Feb 18, 2015 1:20 pm

Hi, I have a little problem in WeBuilder 2015.
Does anybody have an idea why the mouse cursor is always flickering inside WeBuilder?
This is only inside WeBuilder and only since version 2015. I never had this in any previous versions.

WeBuilder 13.2 on Windows 8.1

Just a little cosmetic thing, but it drives me crazy while programming ;-)

A little demonstration:

Same happens to me under Windows 8.1.
Both in Webuilder 2014 and 2015.

I've just installed WeBuilder 2015 (13.2.0.164) on my Windows 8.1 64 bit machine and am also getting the same, but not as constant as in the video.
For me it seems to do it 3 or 4 times, and then not again for a few minutes, but I do notice the file explorer flickering at the same time, like it is refreshing the file or folder list.

Okay, I am not alone :-)

Maybe any Dev has an idea why this happens and how to stop that.

Does it happen when File Explorer is closed?

Yes, I have tested it right now and it looks like,
when I close the file explorer the flickering is away.

The funny thing is, when I reopen the explorer again it is not coming back.

Do I reopen the program the flickering comes back.

I have 2 theories... Start with changing root folder (File Explorer pane -> Folder Options -> Custom Folder -> ...set it to anything...) and see if that changes anything. If not, then for experiment's sake, could you kill running applications one by one and see if flickering stops after each kill to see if any of them could be at fault?

I have changed the root folder and it looks like this is the solution for me. :)

When I change it to Desktop, the flickering is right away and from now it looks like that it is not coming back.
Do I change it back to Workspace the flickering comes back too.

Thank You for the solution!

Had the same exact cursor flickering with WeBuilder in Win 10.

Fixed now by changing to custom folder.

Wondering why that was triggering the rapid blinking? Did you guys ever figure it out the reason?
