Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2019 Version 16.1.3
SourceGear Vault Professional Visual Studio Extension 10.0.3.30967
SourceGear Vault Professional Work Item Extension 10.0.3.30967

I had installed the original 10.0.3.30966 version of the extension and noticed that the Vault Pro Pending Changes window and the Vault Pro Work Item Tracking windows did not display anything (completely blank other than title bar).

I updated to 10.0.3.30967 and no change.

The Pending Changes window will show whatever the last window in the same dock group was showing. If the docked group is dragged over the IDE window, whatever is open in the IDE will show in the Pending Changes window.

Were you using an earlier version of Visual Studio 2019? If so, did that show the same problem?

Did this redraw / transparency problem just start happening (ie. it was working fine up until yesterday, and then after some event, like a VS update, it starting occurring?)

If you undock the pane and keep them "free-standing" are they still transparent?

Do you have a different computer running VS 2019? If so, is it showing the same problem?

Same display on previous and current version of VS2019. Transparent docked and undocked. Mine is currently the only installation of 2019 as evaluating for company use.

Can you try a test? (Note, my version currently is VS 2019 16.1.1, and I'm assuming you have C# / .NET available as one of your supported project types.)

Start VS 2019, and click the "Continue without code" link. Once VS 2019 starts, verify Tools -> Options: Source Control reads "SourceGear Vault Professional Visual Studio Extension".

Next, from the menu File -> Vault Professional Source Control -> Open from Vault Pro. Log in using guest3/guest3 (user and password) to vaultprodemo.sourcegear.com. Choose the Initial Repository, and then on the left of the "Open from Vault Pro" select the $/jeff test/BrigBrettExample path, and on the right select "BigBrettExample.sln". Then click OK. Note, you may be prompted to provide a working folder.

It should download all the files, and then open the project within Visual Studio. If you look at the "Output" pane (and switch the "Show output from" combo to Vault Pro if necessary, it should show the files were downloaded. If the "Vault Pro Pending Changes" pane is not showing, you can view it from View -> Vault Pro Pending Changes.

Next Check Out and edit Program.cs, does it show up in the pending changes or is your pending changes still transparent?

Still transparent after doing what you asked. The Pending Changes pane is actually showing the output of Vault Pro as that was the previous active pane, so some redraw is not happening.

Apologies for the time gap in answers, your initial message came through as I was leaving for the day.

Hmmm... there's no special painting or owner drawn code in those panes. We haven't encountered that behavior on anything within VS 2019.

The Vault Extension for VS 2019 is compiled against .NET 4.5.1 Framework, and not .NET Core. Is .NET Framework 4.5.1 or later installed on your system? Also, I tested against Windows 10 Pro - 1803 build 17134.829. What version/build of Windows are you using?

Does your system also have VS 2017 installed? If so, does it have the Vault Extension and what version of the Vault Extension is installed? Can you try 10.0.3.30967 on VS 2017?

I'm not certain this tells us anything, but maybe narrows it down to VS 2019 or an OS issue. Later, I'll try to see if VS 2019 16.1.3 is possibly the problem.
