Main thread gets stuck on left mouse down


#1

Hi,
My video player app runs on OSX 10.12.5. It has a window that runs borderless, fullscreen and in a non-resizable mode. Once in a while when I do the following use case, the main thread gets stuck trying to poll events.
My use case is:

  • Run the app, it runs in full screen(I use SDL_WINDOW_FULLSCREEN_DESKTOP)
  • Cmd-tab to go out of full screen to another app
  • Cmd-tab again to get back to my app
  • Press left mouse button, don’t release yet.
    After this point the main thread is stuck until I release the left mouse button and hence video rendering doesn’t happen anymore.

On debugging more, I see that thread 0 is stuck as shown below with sendEvent processing left mouse down. It comes out only after it receives a left mouse up. There are some frames below which show NSWindowResizing, but my window flag doesn’t have SDL_WINDOW_RESIZABLE set. Can someone help me solve this issue.

It seems like clicking on the edge of the screen in fullscreen desktop mode blocks the main thread…
I reproduced this on:

  • OSX 10.12.5
  • current hg SDL

I launched the SDLTest.xcodeproj in SDL/Xcode/SDLTest and ran the testgl2 target.

  • Pressed alt+enter to go fullscreen-desktop
  • move the mouse cursor to the top-left corner of the screen (also works on any edge)
  • click and hold the mouse, the spinning cube will stop

edit: seems like -windowWillEnterFullScreen: in SDL_cocoawindow.m is setting NSResizableWindowMask, which is why this is happening.

Thanks for the reply Eric.

Yes, that’s exactly my observation too. Once in fullscreen, I don’t see the need for this flag to be present. When I clear the flag in windowDidEnterFullScreen, the issue no longer repros.

Let me raise a bug for tracking this.
