Cocoa view overlap bug in Logic Express 7.1?

  • Hello all!

    Apologies for cross-posting. I have a very simple custom view in
    Cocoa, but one tester reported that in Logic Express 7.1.1 on Panther
    it weirdly overlaps: http://artemio.net/tmp/Picture1.jpg

    In Logic Pro 7.2.3 on Tiger all is okay - so I assume this was an
    issue in 7.1.x that was fixed? Should I just suggest that people
    update to 7.2 first? Or this is a problem in my Cocoa view?

    Thanks a lot for any hints,

    Artemiy.
  • Hey all,

    I am filing this one as a bug at ADC bug reporter, but just thought
    this may be of some interest to some of you.

    Summary:

    In Logic Express 7.1.1 (Panther / Intel) and Logic Pro 7.2.3 (Tiger /
    Intel), subwindows with Audio Unit plig-ins with Cocoa views cannot
    be brought forward completely: the Cocoa GUI is brought forward but
    the title/control bar of Logic remains behind certain other windows.

    E.g.:
    http://artemio.net/tmp/Picture1.jpg
    http://artemio.net/tmp/Picture2.jpg

    Steps to Reproduce:

    * Open Logic with the Transformer plug-in installed.
    *  With any audio track, assign a plugin with Cocoa view as one of
    the insert effects
    *  With the same audio track, assign any other Logic plug-in as
    another insert effect
    *  If both plug-in windows aren't already open, double-click on their
    name in the channel strip in the Arrange window so that both plug-in
    windows are open
    *  Click once on the Logic plug-in window's title bar to bring that
    window to the front
    *  Drag that window so it's partially covering the Cocoa view plug-in
    window background
    *  Click on any portion of the Cocoa view plug-in background such as
    the logo (but not the grey header part of the window that Logic
    creates at the top of that window)

    This can be reproduced with Cocoa view plug-ins such as Mod Vibe
    (demo: http://www.musicunfolding.com/downloads/ModVibe.dmg) and
    others from Music Unfolding, Transformer from Sinevibes (demo: http://
    artemio.net/tmp/transformer/Transformer.zip).

    Expected Results:

    The whole plug-in subwindow, including the title bar/controls drawn
    by Logic and Cocoa view need to be on top of all other windows.

    Actual Results:

    The Cocoa view plug-in background is brought forward, but the Logic
    portion of the window at the top of the Cocoa view plug-in window is
    left on the same window layer it was at before.

    Regression:

    Reproduces in Logic Express 7.1.1 on Panther/ PPC and Logic Pro 7.2.3
    on Tiger / Intel.
  • Weird, it now appears as "closed" but I can't read what's the
    solution - is it a know/fixed bug in Logic or a common bug in the
    test Cocoa hosts...
