Description ehucka 2003-02-24 11:50:26 UTC
Build dev 200302240100
Linux RH 7.2 GNome
JDK 1.4.1

It seems all modal dialogs opened from Options
window are not default focused.
For example:

try to open Options and than Editing->Editor
settings->Java Editor->Keybindings
Comment 1 mslama 2003-02-25 10:03:05 UTC
I will check focus.
Comment 2 ehucka 2003-02-25 10:36:00 UTC
With W2K it works right. I reproduced it on Linux only.
Comment 3 ehucka 2003-03-10 10:05:58 UTC
It seems the most of modal dialogs opened from some window or dialog
have not focus after their opening.
Internalization wizard -> Add, CC Database Manager -> Add, Update etc.

Could you do something with it?

The focus behavior of custom editor dialogs is heavily backed by unit tests, and works 
correctly.  However, some Linux window managers do not obey focusing instructions - 
Sawfish and certain configurations of Blackbox in particular do not handle this correctly. 

So, I believe you that the problem exists - it's just not in NetBeans, it's in your window 
manager.  Typically this happens with window managers which do not automatically focus 
child dialogs.
