Description nimmr 2013-06-14 07:46:02 UTC

I have a little request that would make a great feature, even more great. 

I use your navigator window alot for looking up my methods/properties/etc, and I especially use your search feature inside that window. 

Everything here works as it should, except one small thing. 

I have the navigator window on a minimized state, and the press a shortcut to bring it up. At this point, I would like to be able to start typing, and it would use the search feature for the window, but the window dosn't have focus yet, I have to click it with my mouse. 

I would really like if you made the window autofocus when you use a shortcut key to show the window. 

I know it's a small thing, but it would mean alot to me.

Thanks in advance

I updated to 7.3.1, but for some reason, it wont start. I have to kill the process.

Oh well, back to 7.3, and I updated the plugins there, and now my version is:

Product Version: NetBeans IDE 7.3 (Build 201306052037)
Updates: NetBeans IDE is updated to version NetBeans 7.3 Patch 2
Java: 1.7.0_21; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 23.21-b01
Runtime: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 1.7.0_21-b11
System: Windows 7 version 6.1 running on x86; Cp1252; en_US (nb)

It still dosnt work. Maybe it's just the dev build your running?

Are you sure you are testing with the navigator window minimized?

If it's not minimized it works one mine as well.
