hi I have a problem that was solved in the past but I forgot the solution. The problem is that I have a GUI that has an associated resize function that I want to execute after the mouse button is released, but it's actually called while resizing (i.e. dragging and holding down the mouse button). I was told that something in Windows has to be changed to block this bad behavior but I forgot.

Hello Ramiro,
GUI windows redrawing while changing the window size is related to the Windows setting, "Show window contents while dragging". Information on how to disable it on various operating systems may be found here.
I have tested this on Windows 10 as well, and the "systempropertiesadvanced" command still works, so that will probably be functional on Windows 8 and 8.1 too.
