hye everyone,

i m working on Windows Phone 7 and i have Samsung Omnia 7.
in my app whenever i prompt a message to user using "MessageBox",
and after the click of MessageBox Buttons (either OK or Cancel),
it shows a thin black/white line on my screen.

the line appears black if its dark theme and appears white if its light theme.
it appears at 3/3.5 cms below the form/page top.

i tried to see that if it is a hardware problem,
but the other default apps uses the transparent background,
and so if it is in case appearing then also, i can't view the line.

in my app, i have used some images for the background of the grids used in my App.

Also,
the black line doesn't appears all the time,
it appears randomly when a message prompts or a message box comes.

So, is it a known thing?
Or is it a hardware problem in Samsung Omnia 7.
Or is it my coding issue???

If anyone know anything about it or facing same issue, please reply.

Thanks in advance.

it might be that you are not handling the redraw of the window properly. Just a suggestion.

Solution 1

This is a newly discovered artifact called Black Line of Death.


The artifact was first detected on a iPad of the model iPhone 2G, model of 2007, manufactured on September 31, 2007. Later it was detected on ██████ and ███████████. It was later classified as SCP-20110401 by the SCP Organization. See http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com.


This is the first time it is detected on Samsung Omnia 7. The artifact should be reported to http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-series as soon as possible for neutralization.


The artifact should be placed on a portable device called Carrier. It should be stored in a room of the size 5x5x5 m with the walls made of standard armored steel of the class 5, covered with the solid layer of liquid crystal. The room should be guarded by two workers of class D tested for inability of ███████. The workers passes standard background check in order to make sure they never worked in QA departments or groups of any organization or ██████████, by the reasons explained below.


Description. The object appears as a part of screen image of the Carrier in the form of a solid black line and appears only when the person is watching the screen. Any kinds of photograph or video file always show the normal screen without any unexplained artifacts; the object never appears. This fact suggests purely mental nature of the phenomenon. The detection of the object is complicated by the fact that it never appears in the presence of highly qualified software developers. The required level of qualification is presently under investigation, but it is known that artifact can always be viewed by a person trained to use Basic or PHP language (or both), regardless of the platform, Web agent or version of the Basic or PHP software. Usually essential experience in three or more non-trivial computer languages makes SCP-20110401 completely invisible to a developer with such experience.

The main effect of the object is the ability to induce a mental disorder in the person, called Issue Reporting Compulsory Disorder (IRCD). After 1 minute of watching the subject gets a feeling of being helpless, perceiving the black line as a "Grand total summary line" of subject's life. After 5 minutes of watching the object, an affected person feels the strong desire to report different kinds of malfunctions she or he attributes to computer programs. This condition usually results in sending questions to CodeProject, StackOverflow, ████ and ████████. The reported malfunctions can be either real or imaginary and are usually very hard to reproduce. SCP-20110401 effect does not allow subject to describe the malfunction at the level of detail sufficient for reproduction. At the same time the affected subject tends to report a lot of unrelated detail of the behavior of the computer program.


The object was never reported on any Carriers based on desktop or laptop systems and was never observed while operating Web appli▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄

▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄


SCP-20110401 has severe effect on the workers of QA departments on April 1st of each year. Two or more hours of exposure to the object is usually fatal. The condition should be reported in a very short period of time after it is detected. Organization requires physical removal of the affected worker if the condition is not reported before midnight of April 1st of the same year.

Sandeep,

I would like to invite your to see my new 1 of April publication and have some fun:

This time, I put more effort in the work. The fun and mocking is supposed to be combined with quite serious hints on how we can conduct our discussions, give and use advice, add references and use them, use critical thinking, learn and use our own brains.

Thank you.

That's redaction, isn't it? Have a five!

Thank you very much. What do you mean by redaction? This is the original (C) 2011 be SA.
d@nish at 1-Apr-11 4:10am
   
Redaction is hiding parts of text from the document to avoid copyright issues and make the user pay to get the document legally. Similar thing that you have used in your post. It's like teasing advertisement.
SAKryukov at 1-Apr-11 4:23am
   
Not quite the case here. It has elements of parody, which is not the same.

Masking the real information quite beautifully with humor. So you are encryption specialist as well, eh? :)
