The only work around is to close and reopen the layers window.

Dont know if this is fixable, but this is still happening.

@Greebo, do you think this is also linked or related to the 'wxToggleButton' function somehow..?

Will test and see if this issue got resolved in 2.9pre3 as a result of the fix implemented in 0005391

Still preset in 2.9pre3.

To clarify, the behaviour is that the layer is hidden but the tick mark is drawn on the corresponding toggle button as if it were visible?

Hold fire for now, as I think the other layers window fix you have done for pre3 may have fixed it. I have had DR open for 2hours and so far the issue hasen't appeared.

Ok, so it turned out I just needed DR open for longer than 2hrs for the issue to happen again.

So in answer for your question, yes the behavior is that the layer is hidden but the tick mark is drawn on the corresponding toggle button as if it were visible. See attached, the only visible layers are default and manor_gnd.

I just spotted another issue related to this bug, when the above issue is happening the 'Show all' becomes un-togglable and stays grayed-out.

Ok, so it seems that it's possible for the layers window to get its visual state out of sync with the state of the LayerSystem in the backend. Especially if opening and closing the dialog will fix it, because that's when the dialog will reload all its controls and sync the state with the LayerSystem.

There must be some steps leading up to that issue, do you remember doing anything special before that? Are you just clicking the toggles, or is this happening without any interaction?
Not sure if the run time plays any role, except for making the steps more likely to happen.

I'll check in a change that might have an effect on this issue - maybe you can have a look at it in the next pre-release build.

Hi Greebo

Regarding states/steps, I am fairly sure I can just leave DR along without touching it and it will exibit the same issue. So tonight before going to bed I will load DR with a map loaded (bhm) and see whats its state is like in the morning.

And yes am more than happy to test the change with the next build.

So leaving DR running for 8hrs with no input didn't reproduce the issue.

There's a new pre-release version (2.9.2pre2) available here, maybe you can check out if the behaviour is improved now.

Downloading and will test first thing in the morning.

Am currently testing.

reporter   ~0013024

tested (2.9.2pre2) for a few hours this morning, and the issue hasn't recurred. So this tracker can be closed.

thanks for fixing this :-)
