IDE 3.5 Beta (Build 200304142350)
How to reproduce:
- Ensure that at least 1 form is already open in
the form editor
- Open the Explorer and select a node with a form
- Select "Design this Container" in the context
menu of a container of this form.
The form editor should gain focus.
Nothing happens, the explorer window still has focus.
Ok, the focus should be transferred.
This worked in previous versions of NetBeans.
IMHO such broken behavior in such a fundamental function should not
get a "future" milestone.
I am changing the priority only to get this issue to attract the
attention it deserves. I feel it is not my job to change milestones.
Ok, I've just checked it in NB 3.6 RC1 in SDI and it works for me -
the form designer window gets focused. It has likely been fixed with
all the changes done in the window system and form editor.
Since I don't remeber any particular fix I just mark this as
WORKSFORME in 3.6. Please verify.
