I am dissapointed that this problem has not been addressed with the new update 5.0.1.21
Do the Bridge team have this logged as a bug?

Full details are here...

I am having this problem as well. The CS6 ScriptUI does not render properly in Bridge CS6 64 bit in Windows 7. Here is some sample code:



var w = new Window('dialog');
w.orientation = 'row';
// dropdown controls have dark background in Bridge CS6 64 bit
var d = w.add ("dropdownlist", undefined, ["one", "two", "three"]);
// vertical scroll bars are broken in Bridge CS6 64 bit
var sb = w.add('scrollbar');
sb.size = [25,200];
w.show();


Result running in the ESTK:


Result running in Bridge CS6 64bit:


Result running in Photoshop CS6 64bit:


The dialog renders differently in the three programs. Apparently Adobe has been aware of this since April. This has rendered my scripts unusable in Bridge CS6. Please fix this soon.

Treeview does not work, and others have complained that trying to display an UI with an Image will crash Bridge.
Also problems with NavBars..

Given the lack of response from Adobe either to update us or fix this bug I can only draw one of two conclusions:

1. Not many people use bridge scripting in a UI making this a low priority for Adobe.
2. Adobe lacks the resources/organization/will to get it done.

Supporting the scripting environment in Adobe products certainly appears to be a low priority. I gave up creating new scripts a few years ago due to lack of bug fixes and support, but I sure would like to be able to keep the ones I created working in the current programs.

I have to point out I would not be "venting" if Adobe had at least given this thread an "Acknowledged" status.

Any idea if Adobe is going to fix this any time soon Jeffrey? After all, it has been 32 months now.

Just to confirm the bug and add my support to the request for a fix - I had problems with the TreeView widget in CS6, as described above.

My TreeView was representing a file system, so I worked around it by using custom extension handlers to render the same structure. It works, but it is a lot more code. However, at least I have no more ScriptUI left in the plugin!

It really is hard to believe adobe could leave this in such a state. Talk about not supporting their product.

Is any taking any notice of 12 month old bugs?
Will they be fixed in CS6?
Is Bridge to be discontinued as no one is listening or doing anything about this?

And if they can't get this type of stuff done now, what incentive do they have under the rental model?

I would be very interested if anyone could tell us if these bugs have been addressed in the cc version?

Just tested on a friends machine and they still haven't fixed these bugs in Windows Bridge CC 6.0.0.151 x64.

That's a big black hole from Adobe.
It blocks a lot of hard work that could be helping a lot of people here.

I just tested this on OSX and a new MacBook retina. Same problem.

I am flummoxed that adobe have not fixed this and don't even respond to this issue.

Come on Adobe, this has still not been acknowledged!
This was reported BEFORE CS6 was released!

Well, I guess we got an acknowledgement in the form of censorship :*(
