Inspect members ui does not get focus when opened. It's opening in the front, but when you start typing everything goes to last focused editor.
I think best would be that "Filter:" field gets focus when opening members UI.
I tried this on 7.1, 7.1.1, and on the daily build with JDK 1.6u29. In all cases it works as expected, i.e, the focus is in Filter: field upon Inspect Members dialog opening. What JDK version do you use ? Can you observe the faulty behavior also on other machines ?
I'm using 1.7 from Oracle:
java version "1.7.0_03"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_03-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 22.1-b02, mixed mode)
I've done small test and switched to 1.6.0_31:
java version "1.6.0_31"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_31-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 20.6-b01, mixed mode, sharing)
It works fine on 1.6.
Switched back to 1.7 and it fails, so it looks like it's 1.7 specific.
can't reproduce in
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 20120326-142a2031e2c0)
Java: 1.7.0_03; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 22.1-b02
System: Windows 7 version 6.1 running on x86; Cp1250; en_US (nb)
I had the same issue with NB 7.1.1 and JDK 1.7.0_04 on Win XP.
It works fine with NB 7.1.2 and JDK 1.7.0_04 on Win XP.
