Occasionally the window is has random gibberish in it

See original GitHub issue


Occasionally the window will have random characters show up at random locations.

Repro steps

Please provide the steps required to reproduce the problem

  1. Clone
  2. Check out the terminal-elmish-15 branch
  3. Build and run the device project

Expected behavior

You should get a window that looks like this: Screen Shot 2019-08-25 at 5 17 02 PM

Actual behavior

Sometimes, within 30 seconds of the program starting, the screen will spontaneously change to the following: Screen Shot 2019-08-25 at 5 23 05 PM

If the issue doesn’t happen in the first 30 seconds it doesn’t seem to happen at all.

Known workarounds

Use 0.1.13 with work-arounds for issue

Related information

  • Operating system: OSX
  • Branch: 0.1.15
  • .NET Runtime, CoreCLR or Mono Version: .net core 2.2
  • Performance information, links to performance testing scripts

You don’t need to rush to fix this in time for my Open F# talk, I can make things work with 0.1.13 fine.

Nice! Yes this resolves the issue for me on mac - thanks for the quick fix!

It took me a moment to realise that I needed to remove the spurious Terminal.Gui.Elmish.dll reference, but once I had removed that and done dotnet add package Terminal.Gui.Elmish it all worked perfectly.

Hopefully this resolves your issue too Brett.

edit: I really want to understand this line here! let t = Application.Current.GetType() = typeof<Terminal.Gui.Dialog>
