locked Windows 10 May 2019 Update - Confirmed broken JTAlert behaviour


HamApps Support (VK3AMA)
 

I can now confirm the broken JTAlert behaviour (minimize and close buttons disabled) under the 1903 update of Windows 10.

At this time, it is unknown if a fix will be possible. This update has broken something within the quite complex (and convoluted) code needed to display the menus and Band-Activity in the titlebar.

It is still possible to close JTAlert, there are several methods available...
  •     Use either the Alerts or Settings title-bar menus, the bottom most menu item "Exit JTAlert"
  •     Right click the Windows taskbar entry for JTAlert and click the "Close Window" menu item.
  •     Left click the JTAlert icon in the titlebar (on the far left) and click the "Close" menu entry.
  •     Make JTAlert the active window and issue the standard Windows hotkey for closing window, Alt+F4

If you don't want to use one of these alternatives, the only solution is to install the "Alternate Layout" version  of JTAlert.

I have confirmed the "Alternate Layout" build is working with Win10 1903.
