JDE Screen Artifacts while editing

In JDE 4.2, 4.5 and 4.6 beta I have screen artifacts appearing while editing code. 

 

Text appears to be smudged  as this text with the line through it does, only with random amounts of bit noise. The effect only happens within controls such as the editor or project window tree and output logs.  Menu buttons and window borders are not effected.

 

It makes editing in the JDE incredibly difficult.  I am running winXP on a dual monitor GeForce 6200...

 

The problem does not appear with other java IDEs such as Netbeans and Eclipse.

 

Has anyone else figured out how to fix this?

 

Daniel

Re: JDE Screen Artifacts while editing

No idea, man.  :smileyhappy:  If you see class/methods with actual lines through them that usually means it's deprecated API, but if it's just some kind of pixelation/artifacting then I'm not sure what's going on.  I haven't experienced anything like that, myself.

Re: JDE Screen Artifacts while editing

Here is an actual screen capture...  It happens consistently on my system in single and dual screen mode.  I have seen in other java forums over at Sun that other apps sometimes get these kind of artifacts...

Re: JDE Screen Artifacts while editing

Do you see this with other Java applications on your PC?  What version(s) of Java JDK do you have installed?  What does "java -version" show when run from a command line?

 

What video card do you have?

Re: JDE Screen Artifacts while editing

GeForce 6200,  JRE 1.6.0_06   - pulled the video card and used the motherboard video - problem still occurs.

 

Does not happen in NetBeans or Eclipse.... (for me...)

 

Research Links:

---------------------------------- 

Netbeans screen artifacts:

Used Try adding the following lineswitch when
starting the IDE:

-Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true

to fix the problem with netbeans...

 ----------------------------------------

 

Is there an equivilent switch for JDE

Re: JDE Screen Artifacts while editing

Please try adding the same parameter to the command line present in the ide.bat file located in the bin directory of your BlackBerry JDE installation directory.

Re: JDE Screen Artifacts while editing

Thanks Mark,  I didn't know exactly where to put it or if it would even work.

 

The problem is solved.
