Description tanya 2003-10-27 09:54:13 UTC
Product Version:  Sun ONE Studio 5  Standard
Edition (Build 030904)

Operating System: SunOs version 5.8 running on sparc
Java:             1.4.1_05

    To reproduce the bug:
1. Having focus in the Explorer[Filesystem],
   create Properties File through
File/New/Other/Properties File.
   Source editor view appears, but focus is on the
node created.
ISSUE 1:  Focus should be in Source Editor view.
Ctrl-3 highlihgts
          Source Editor[<Properties File> node *]
view, but focus
          remains in Filesystems view.
ISSUE 2: There are no properties in the table yet,
but 'Remove Property'
         button is enabled.
2. Fource focus into Source Editor view using
mouse and create New Property.
3. Press Space in Key or Value table cell to start

ISSUE 3: You can`t move focus to the next
component using Ctrl-Tab.

I am able to reproduce all the three mentioned issues on a PC+Linux
platform with a NetBeans 3.6 beta. They will not be fixed in NetBeans 3.6.

Issue #1 is caused by bug #40507 ("Activating a TopComponent does not
move focus to its focus cycle").
Comment 2 Jan Stola 2004-07-21 10:45:09 UTC
issue 1: fixed - the focus is moved into the editor by now.

issue 2: fixed - Remove Property button is disabled when no
  property is selected (for example when there is no property).

issue 3: this seems to be a misunderstanding. It works correctly.
  The only "problem" is that (on some look and feels?) Ctrl+Tab
  moves focus on the scrollbar of the textarea. After that just
  simple Tab must be used to move focus to the next component.
