I am attaching a picture of the problem.  It is occurring with my users who are getting new tablets with Windows 8.1.  Any suggestions on how to fix it?

You could try opening in Internet Explorer with compatibility mode on.

Sorry!  I should have stated that this is a Windows Forms application.  I was thinking of only selecting the top 5 rows for the screen.  But am waiting to see if there is something else I could do.

Karen, how many rows are loaded in the datagridview when this occurs? It could just be a refresh issue due to that. There are ways of dealing with such problems but I first want see if this really is the root of the issue.

It depends upon the container being selected.  Some have a lot of rows while others only have one.

If you have only, say.. 50 rows, will it have the same problem?

Let me check with the end user.  It is appearing to happen on the smaller screens of the tablets out in the field.

Right. That's good.

There are so many things that can cause that kind of symptom (bad memory, overloading buffers, video drivers, and more). The more clues the better.

Today the problem seems to have cleared itself up.  I was thinking the same thing, that he had too much open while he was out and about performing inspections.  He ran it with the same stuff open and no problem.  I am thinking he may have been getting a system upgrade behind the scenes by our IT department.  I will monitor the situation.

Thanks for responding,
Karen
