Description johnzoet 2003-04-20 01:32:54 UTC
Go to Options > Templates
Choose a template, right-click > open.
What happens is that the template is opened in the
but the focus does not shift to the editor.
So, from a user perspective it looks as if nothing
I feel the focus should be on the editor when you
click on open template.

On which JDK does this happen?
Comment 2 Miloslav Metelka 2003-04-28 09:19:18 UTC
John, could you please tell us which JDK version are you using?

Anyway moving to core/window system for evaluation.
Comment 3 johnzoet 2003-04-28 10:09:28 UTC
Same focus on jdk1.4_01 and jdk1.4_02

I suppose you mean Tools -> Options window. In MDI it is more
useability problem: Options window is separate window. When you select
Open action what should happen? 
1.If focus stays in Options window it looks like nothing happens.
2.If focus would be transferred to main window (Source Editor) Options
window will be hidden behind main window.
Both cases are not ideal I think. I reassign to UI to define correct
Comment 5 johnzoet 2003-05-07 00:01:44 UTC
Template maintenance should be a menu option in the main window,
because in that case there is no focus problem.
The present place under options is not suited for functions that
require editing of files as in all scenarios there is a focus problem.

Because Window System v1 will not be supported from now by our team, all old
winsys issues (now "core/window system v1" issues) are going to be closed as

Changes in API which emerged both from UI spec 
and problems with adjusting to the older API are described in the document
 It shows also recommends how the client code should be adjusted to the new
window system.

If you think this issue apply also to the new winsys then change the
subcomponent (to "core/window system") and REOPEN it.

issue doesn't apply to new window system - verified
