Comment 2 Marian Petras 2004-09-17 10:50:51 UTC
Possible solution:

Once the JEditorPane is obtained, find its nearest (containment
hierarchy) parent TopComponent and activate it by calling

The described code should be put into file
 below statement "if (panes != null)" (currently at line 219).
Comment 3 Marian Petras 2004-09-21 14:59:04 UTC
I cannot reproduce this bug.

My configuration:
  NetBeans custom build 040920
  Fedora Core Linux running on Intel
  Sun JDK 1.4/1.5:  (tested on both)
       J2SDK 1.4.2_05
       J2SDK 1.5.0-rc

If you still can reproduce this bug, feel free to reopen it but do not
forget to accurately specify your platform, OS, Java version and
NetBeans build number.

Comment 6 pzajac 2004-10-05 10:42:17 UTC
RedHat Linux 9
Kde desktop
jdk :
ava version "1.4.2_04"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_04-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2_04-b05, mixed mode)
Comment 7 Marian Petras 2004-10-07 14:13:02 UTC

To reproduce:
1) shutdown NetBeans
2) open console and start NetBeans with parameter

             -open myfile.txt

   (the file gets open in editor, the editor window gets activated
   and cursor starts blinking at the first line of the file)

3) repeat step 2) in another console

The file remains open in editor, the editor is still activated (i.e.
its tab highlighted) but the cursor vanishes and the user cannot work
with the file until they do one of the following:
  - click in the editor window so that the cursor appears
  - activate another window and then activate the editor window again
Comment 8 Marian Petras 2004-10-08 16:17:01 UTC
Actually the bug is that the already opened (and focused) file
_looses_ focus. But this is not caused by the Utilities code at all.
The IDE looses focus as soon as the user invokes

    ./netbeans <whatever arguments>

Even if I disabled the CLI handler of the Utilities module, I still
encountered the same behaviour.

I am moving this issue to "core".
Comment 9 Jaroslav Tulach 2005-01-05 14:15:07 UTC
I know where the problem is - in CLIOptions*.java
