Computer freezes when moving horizontal scroll bar in describe window and datagrid?

Hi, I just upgraded to 11.0.0.116. I don’t know if this is a Toad
problem or not… 3 times in the last 2 days, my computer has frozen
when moving a horizontal scroll bar in Toad…twice in a describe window
and once in a datagrid in the editor. Frozen like in nothing
works…mouse won’t move, alt-tab and alt-ctrl-del don’t work…nadda.
I have to turn my machine off and back on. It doesn’t happen every time
I move the scroll bar.

Have you tried turning on Options > General > Horizontal scroll lock protection?

Make that 4 times in 2 days…and no, but I would if I had that option…

This was intended as a jest, by the way, maybe it was too subtle : )

I’d probably see the humor if my computer didn’t keep freezing…6 times now and
only in Toad. Video driver?

Sorry.

I doubt it’s the video driver. It sounds like it’s entirely grid/data related,
not video.

What about the number of columns in the grid - very large? When this happens can
you bring up Process Explorer to see if the Toad process is spiked?

No, nothing atypical, just regular fairly small datagrids and column lists. No,
I can’t do process explorer because the computer is totally frozen. I doubt it
has anything to do with Toad if no one else is having this issue. Hardware
support changed my video cards because I kept getting a ‘blue screen of
death’…not sure this is an improvement.

I’ve seen pretty odd behavior over the years with things like Windows Themes,
Large/Small Fonts and so forth. It’s something we often have to code for. It may
sound like a stretch but maybe try simplifying as much as possible - Windows
Classic Theme, regular Fonts and so forth.

I was going to write about the latest GA version being painfully slow when I
have a number of tabs and grids open but as I was looking, I realized that
Firefox was consuming huge amounts of resources at the time (with TOAD being a
close contender). I closed Firefox and TOAD started responding normally.

Not saying this is the solution here, but it might be worth looking at. . .

I’ll give it a try. Thanks.

Unfortunately the entire computer freezes…the only thing that works is the off
button. Toad was the only application I had open at least a couple of times. I
know what you mean though–when a virus scan starts on my computer, I either
have to kill it or forget using Toad.

I’ve just had what I think is a similar issue - I had the audacity to close a describe window, and Toad froze up. It was showing up as 25% CPU (I’ve the equivalent of 4 CPUs, so this has taken one of them to 100%).

As it happened 5 mins before hometime, I left it going in the hopes that Toad would come back to itself ok by morning, but no dice.

If you’ve only got one CPU on the machine, I could easily see this issue causing the whole pc to lock up.

I don’t think it’s related to the lockups but there was definitely a problem
with toad regaining focus after a describe window was closed. That problem is
fixed for next beta

Ah, good to know, thanks!

Wendy,

There are 3 ways to move the scroll bar

  1. grab the slider

2)click in the slider tray

  1. click on the end arrows

I had a problem with Toad a long time ago where moving a slider would cause it
to freeze but only if one of the above. I don’t recall which one. The other
ways of moving the same slider did not cause a freeze. You might want to
experiment.

just upgraded to 11.0.0.116. I don’t know if this is a Toad problem or
not… 3 times in the last 2 days, my computer has frozen when moving a
horizontal scroll bar in Toad…twice in a describe window and once in a
datagrid in the editor. Frozen like in nothing works…mouse won’t move,
alt-tab and alt-ctrl-del don’t work…nadda. I have to turn my machine
off and back on. It doesn’t happen every time I move the scroll bar. __

    I've just had what I think is a similar issue - I had the audacity to
    close a describe window, and Toad froze up. It was showing up as 25% CPU
    (I've the equivalent of 4 CPUs, so this has taken one of them to 100%).

    As it happened 5 mins before hometime, I left it going in the hopes that
    Toad would come back to itself ok by morning, but no dice.

    If you've only got one CPU on the machine, I could easily see this issue
    causing the whole pc to lock up.

atypical, just regular fairly small datagrids and column lists.
No, I can’t do process explorer because the computer is
totally frozen. I doubt it has anything to do with Toad if no
one else is having this issue. Hardware support changed my video
cards because I kept getting a ‘blue screen of
death’…not sure this is an improvement. On 10/13/2011 9:29

It sounds like it’s entirely grid/data related, not video.
What about the number of columns in the grid - very large? When
this happens can you bring up Process Explorer to see if the
Toad process is spiked? __ Author: mark.lerch_828 Date: Thu Oct

11:00:05 PDT 2011 Hi, I just upgraded to 11.0.0.116. I don’t
know if this is a Toad problem or not… 3 times in the last 2
days, my computer has frozen when moving a horizontal scroll bar
in Toad…twice in a describe window and once in a datagrid in
the editor. Frozen like in nothing works…mouse won’t move,
alt-tab and alt-ctrl-del don’t work…nadda. I have to turn
my machine off and back on. It doesn’t happen every time I
move the scroll bar. __ _______________________________________

            I've just had what I think is a similar issue - I had the
            audacity to close a describe window, and Toad froze up. It was
            showing up as 25% CPU (I've the equivalent of 4 CPUs, so
            this has taken one of them to 100%).

            As it happened 5 mins before hometime, I left it going in the
            hopes that Toad would come back to itself ok by morning, but no
            dice.

            If you've only got one CPU on the machine, I could easily
            see this issue causing the whole pc to lock up.

            Unfortunately the entire computer freezes...the only thing that
            works is the off button. Toad was the only application I had
            open at least a couple of times. I know what you mean
            though--when a virus scan starts on my computer, I either have
            to kill it or forget using Toad. On 10/13/2011 10:21 AM, Phyllis
