Button/Boolean mouse hover not working on 64 Bit LabVIEW

Update

 

When I compiled the application, the hover worked at least for the few times I tested.

 

I can put non customized booleans that have the hover effect in LabVIEW 2019 64bit, and they work. However, as soon as I customize them, the hover effect no longer works. Extremely frustrating.

I've seen it go wrong in executables as well. But it's more rare.

It's not a global effect. I've seen the bug in one clone of a VI, where other clones still worked.

 

I haven't tested non customized Booleans, so it could be that they are not effected all. Or they simply didn't get triggered to get the bug.

What was weird for me was I had a Front panel of customized buttons where the hover did not work. I dropped a System or NXG style button on that same panel; the hover for those worked while the others did not.

 

I haven't tried LabVIEW 2020 yet, but a little bird told me the CAR was closed. Not sure what that means, whether it is fixed or just forgotten about. The CAR does not appear on the 2020 upgrade/README notes.

Is this it?..

LabVIEW 2020 Bug Fixes 

 

Bug number: 166386

Description:
 
Incorrect behavior when using a Boolean control from the System palette
When using a Boolean control from the System palette and running the VI, you do not see the "hover" picture change. When clicked, the value stays consistent, but the button does not change visually.

 

Workaround:

Do not use the System Boolean buttons or place them inside another structure.

 

Details:

Reported Version: LabVIEW 2017 SP1

Resolved Version: LabVIEW 2020

Added: Apr 20, 2020

I did a quick test in LabVIEW 2020 in both IDE and EXE and didn't see the bug yet. Hope it's fixed now.

 

BTW, it turns out, CAR number does not equal to Bug number. It was assigned CAR # 718053, but Bug # is 166386. 🙄

If you mean that thread on LAVA, then I used the same basic principle proposed by flarn on the first page of the thread. I just used another software for it. I think, it's a quite an off-topic here, so it might be better asked somewhere else. 🙂
