WWL V7.1.117: Strange Animated Map when Enlarged

http://img856.imageshack.us/img856/9963 … gjhadu.mp4

This applies to Windows 8.1 x64 Pro, WWL V7.1.117, with latest Nvidia drivers on a GEForce 650 Ti graphics card.

The link at the top is for a video that clearly shows the issue. Only the top right portion of an enlarge animated weather map is animated.

Interface skin: Splendid4
Forecast icons: Shiny
Tray icon: Shiny
Tray Tooltip skin: Day and Night

What is the URL for that map?

Any word on what is causing this? Can it be fixed?

I just tried this in Windows 8 and found the animation displays as expected when the map is enlarged.

Have you rebooted since reporting this issue? If not, please try that.

Which version of IE do you have installed? I have version 10.0.9200.16466.

I have rebooted many times since noticing and posting this issue. I am running IE 11, V11.0.9600.16438 which is the latest version as of 12-Nov-2013. I use the 32-bit version.

I was able to reproduce this issue after upgrading to IE 11. It appears to be a bug in IE 11, but I’ve found no reports of this issue.

My wife’s machine just updated to Windows 8.1 which apparently includes IE 11 and many websites that she had no problem connecting to with Windows 8’s IE now have to be run in IE’s Compatibility mode to function normally. IMO IE 11 is not ready for prime time at this point.

I don’t know how you can enable Compatibility mode via WWL or if there is an IE setting that forces Compatibility mode for everything. But IE 11 definitely has problems.


Perhaps you could post a bug report on exactly what is happening in WWL that causes this problem. Bugs on the URL below for IE.


I don’t know if that will result in MS fixing it; however, it’s worth a try./

It looks like IE has a new “feature” that causes hidden GIF images not to be painted.

The larger map image is hidden until it’s shown. I guess IE has no way to detect when that occurs so it does not change the area that is repainted.

I’m not sure if there is a way to work around this yet.

Thanks for the update on what is causing this issue. It is no big deal as for as weather monitoring use on my system. Hopefully over time, Microsoft will fix it or issue a method that will permit WWL to properly display.

Thanks again for the effort…for sure.

This issue is now resolved. I don’t know if it was resolved by the latest WWL updates (7.1.135/36) or the March hotfixes from Microsoft for Windows 8.1; but, at any rate it is fixed. :thumbright:
