Alt-tabbing out of the machine code monitor

Post subject:  Alt-tabbing out of the machine code monitor

I'm running CCS 3.0 under Windows 98 SE.
There's a bug in the machine code monitor that can be reproduced like this:

1) Start CCS64 and press Alt-M to enter the MCM.
2) Alt-Tab to another application.
If you click on the application in the task bar, the bug doesn't occur.
3) Return to CCS64, either with Alt-Tab or by clicking on it in the task bar.
4) Try entering the command "M2000".

Entering the "M" works fine, but when you enter the "2", CCS64 clears the entire MCM input window.
Pressing Escape followed by Alt-M fixes the problem, until I Alt-Tab to another application again.
This is only a minor bug, but I'm reporting it because it can be annoying, e.g. when I have to switch between the MCM and another application often.

I cannot reproduce this. I am using Windows XP. Perhaps it is something Win9x specific.

I can confirm the bug is there, just tried it.

This is what I did:
1-ALT M into the monitor
2-M2000 [enter], this works
3-ALT TAB to Firefox
4-Taskbar icon clicking CCS64 3.0 Beta 1.7
5-M2000 will not work, the 2 will clear the input line
It appears some other 0-9 keys also do not function.
Infact, strange things start to happen....

Windows XP SP2 English

I have tried this again using your instructions and I still cannot reproduce this. I am using CCS64 V3 Official, Windows XP SP2 English, IE6 SP2, and an ATI Radeon graphics card.

Windows ME is the bug. Kinda why M$ is no longer supporting it.

Maybe switching to another application causes CCS64 to not notice when you release the Alt key, so it gets stuck. Try tapping the Alt key briefly after you return to CCS64; that may fix it.

(Windows XP is NT-based while Windows ME is more 9x-based, so there's bound to be some difference in the keyboard drivers. That could cause this problem to not occur on XP systems.)

The MCM in CCS64, by the way, provides four different windows that you can input commands into. This is so, for example, you can have information displayed on one screen which you can refer to while editing some code in another screen. Alt-2 may be the command to switch to the second screen. Try Alt-1 to switch back.

Old topic, but since it came up again because the previous spam, did I try what "RFBcsa" wrote and I got the same result, running Windows 7 x64 and CCS3.8. :?
