Large menus of IDE not readable on Touch Diamond

    I have a problem when programming on my device:
    On my Diamond some large menus do not show properly. If the number of entries does not fit on the screen, arrows appear on top and bottom. At the same time the entries of the later pages are drawn over the current entries. After a while, everything is black and unreadable.

    This occurs for example in the menus that show the available properties or methods after typing an objects name followed by the dot.
    Can't provide a screenshot now, will try later from my desktop.

    This happends to me too, and I am 90% certain that it is ROM related...
    Are you using a "custom" ROM?
    I know I am.
    I'm using one of Tomal's lattest ROM, Never had this before...

    Hm, no I have the official latest german version which is
    1.93.407.1 GER

    That behaviour does not occur in any other application, so I doubt it is a ROM issue. Maybe framework-related? I have .net compact 3.5 installed.

    I've had different "views" on different roms
    so i have to agree with cableguy on this one

    here's why :

    Basic4ppc uses the standard menu control, so the problem is probably somewhere else.
    Does any other HTC Diamond users see this problem?

    Humm I have it too, but it came "pre-installed" in the ROM....So I cannot un-install it...
    Have you manually installed yours?
    Anyone knows how to "repair" the CF Instalation?
    I think this may have to do with some regestry keys missing or wrong values in them...Of course, CF3.5 related keys...

    Yes, CF 2.0 is included. I'll remove 3.5 and see what happens.


    Edit: Just tried. The problem perrsists.

    I have the same problem with the menü. Although I've changed the system-font(look so that everything fits now, but a few bugs are still present (look at the pics under my post)

    This issue will be fixed by providing a true VGA ide.
    It will probably be released as part of the next major upgrade (not 6.50).

    A true VGA Ide, my dreams came true...
    Speaking of v6.50, when should we expect it's release?
    Is it beeing delayed for some reason?

    I'm back home now, so I can provide a screenshot. Just to be sure that we talk about the same phenomen.

    This how File > Help > Controls > Table > Properties looks on my device:

    Exactly as in mine...
    The first time you hit the dot(.) the list is displayed OK...
    I didnt noticed this behaviour until I needed a prop that didint show in the visible part of the list, so I had to scroll down....
    rendering the visible list un-readable....
    STILL I think this is either CF3.5 regestry keys or Custom ROM related...
    (Un-intalling may still leave on or two regrstry keys left, so if you could do a clean instal of you rom with only the CF2.0, then we would have a really safe basis to explore...)
