If you work with an installation where forms in MS Dynamics AX are opened in the background then the following code fix might help out here:

“Microsoft provides programming examples for illustration only, without warranty either expressed or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. This mail message assumes that you are familiar with the programming language that is being demonstrated and the tools that are used to create and debug procedures.”

Add a new static, client-side method to Classes\Application, as below:

client static void disableWindowGhosting()



DLLFunction DLLFunction;

container con = WinAPI::getVersion();


if (conpeek(con, 1) == 6) //Vista and Win7/Win2008R2 only


//this will disable window ghosting for this process only, for its lifespan only

DLL = new DLL(‘USER32′);

DLLFunction = new DLLFunction(DLL,’DisableProcessWindowsGhosting’);;



Add a call to this from Application.startupPost(), like this:

if (hasGUI())
