strange behaviour of RunInRectangle

Hello,

I built an application that uses SumatraPDF (http://www.sumatrapdfreader.org/free-pdf-reader.html) in a rectangle. My NeoBook applications doesn't run in full screen mode. When I got to the page with the rectangle, SumatraPDF opens in full screen mode an then resizes to the rectangles size. That leads to a flicker effect which I would like to avoid.

Getting any software to run inside a rectangle is a bit of hack to begin with, so I doubt that there is anything we can do to prevent the flicker. Most apps aren't designed to be confined to a rectangle, so really we're lucky that SumatraPDF works at all.

Try to set some command-line arguments like -view or -presentation

Hello Tony,

thank you very much for you hint. Opening SumatraPDF minimized solved the problem.
