If I do a search, so that the "Search result" window has the focus, then I do either "run" or "clean and build", the output window doesn't get the focus automatically. (It should, IMHO)
What does work is a focus change if one of the output sub-windows has the focus.
This defect is (very loosely) related to "my" #194214, which is also a focus issue.
NetBeans 7.0.1 has the same issue.
The output window does not get focus after running a program, so you have to click on the output window to focus and then click on the editor to minimize (when minimize is marked on the window).
On NetBeans 6.8 this was not happening.
Product Version: NetBeans IDE 7.0.1 (Build 201107282000)
Java: 1.7.0; Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM 21.0-b17
System: Windows XP version 5.1 running on x86; Cp1252; en_BR (nb)
It seems NetBeans 7.1 Beta does not have this bug.
For me the bug happens in 7.0.1 when the output window is minimized. When it pops-up it is not focused.
Fixed with bug 202093. It works well now.
Thank you for your comments.
