Menu items for the table design window in Visual InterDev do not work on the first attempt.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.

This bug was corrected in Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 3. For more information about Visual Studio service packs, please see the following articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

194295 HOWTO: Tell That Visual Studio 6.0 Service Packs Are Installed


Steps to Reproduce Behavior

  1. Open a project with a valid SQL or Oracle data connection.
  2. Right-click a table, and select Design. A table design window opens and receives the focus.
  3. Press and hold down the ALT and "-" key combination. A document context menu appears for a table design window, containing general commands "Restore... Next.."
  4. Hit a mnemonics key for any menu item, such as "C" for "close." No change occurs.
  5. Press "C" again and note that the window closes.

    It is expected that the window would close on the first attempt but does not.

    NOTE: This is true for all the menu items and all the ways of invoking it. Even if you click "close" on the menu, it will work only on the second attempt.
