Hi Appeon Community,


we have recently upgraded our application from PowerBuilder 12.5 to PB2019 R3. we have replaced the menu control with the new feature available in pb2019 which is Ribbonbar. so our menus are no more part of the application. we designed ribbon and start opening up the windows from the ribbon bar clicked events of the XML file. <Largebutton> windows are opening smoothly. but the windows from the <menuitem> tag are showing a grey bar ( left and right side of the application workspace, UI gets disturbed.) which is causing issues for the end-users. 

So I wanted to know either we are missing something or this is a release bug of PowerBuilder 2019. Please advise. Thanks

Backend XML Code for menu item

<Item Tag="mim_a" Text="Reason" Shortcut="Ctrl+F7" Enabled="true" Type="0" Visible="true" Clicked="ue_m_reason"/>&
<Item Tag="mim_b" Text="Resource" Enabled="true" Type="0" Visible="true" Clicked="ue_m_resource"/>&
<Item Tag="mim_s" Text="Schedule Group" Shortcut="Ctrl+F8" Enabled="true" Type="0" Visible="true" Clicked="ue_m_s" />&
<Item Tag="mim_re" Text="Recall Definition" Enabled="true" Type="0" Visible="true" Clicked="ue_m_r" />&
<Item Tag="mim_h" Text="Holidays" Enabled="true" Type="0" Visible="true" Clicked="ue_m_h" />&

Backend code for Largebutton

<LargeButton Tag="lbm_crt"  Text="Create" Clicked="ue_m_crt" PictureName="\Theme\icons\teat1.png">&
