Description Matt 2011-11-24 14:46:20 UTC
I plugged another screen to my macbook air (via the thunberbolt interface) and it causes the context menus to become blank in MonoDevelop.
They are at the correct position, but all blank. Unplugging the additional monitor solves the issue instantly.
Comment 1 Alan McGovern 2011-11-25 09:25:21 UTC
I cannot reproduce this issue with Mono 2.10.6 and MonoDevelop 2.8.2. If you're running older versions of the software, can you try with the these versions (or newer ones). Can you also run MonoDevelop and copy/paste the output of: MonoDevelop -> About MonoDevelop -> Version Info here?

Finally, is there anything special about your monitor setup? Are you using a mirrored display? If not, what orientation have you set your monitors to?
Comment 2 Matt 2011-11-25 12:58:25 UTC
Hello Alan,

Sorry, I forgot to mention an important point, the 2nd display was rotated 90 degrees. Its position relative to the main screen didn't make any difference.

Just in case, here's the version info:

I have the same issue. I have a MacBook Pro running OSX 10.6.8 (all updates installed).
I have my external monitor attached though the VGA adapter, and it is *extending* my laptop screen. The external monitor is configured to "sit above" the laptop screen, so when I move the mouse to the top of the laptop screen (where the menu bar is) and then continues to move up, it move up onto the external monitor.
In this configuration I get an "empty" popup menu as well. I can use the arrow keys on the keyboard to make the popup menu "scroll" into place, thus making it possible to actually use it (and it does work).
So there is a "work-around" to this issue.

Have you tried MonoDevelop 2.8.4?
Comment 5 Martin 2011-12-06 19:27:32 UTC
Yes, I am running the latest version 2.8.4.2 of MonoDevelop.
Comment 6 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-12-07 11:13:20 UTC
Might be a GTK issue then. Need to investigate with that particular configuration.
Comment 7 Jeffrey Stedfast 2011-12-16 18:48:47 UTC
Fixed.
