[ BUILD # : 200509211800 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.5.0_04 ]
When editing a text bundle, the New Property dialog behaves in a very weird way:
The dialog opens and the cursor is placed in the Key field. I type some characters and nothing apparently happens. I press tab but the cursor is stuck. I then use the mouse to focus the Value field and find that the text I though I typed in the Key field is revealed but in the Value field.
If, after opening the dialog, I switch to another application and then back again, the dialog behaves as it should.
This is a duplicate of bug #50423 ("Can't type in dialog 'New Property'"). It is
caused by JDK bug 6183877
(http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6183877) which is now
reported as fixed. It is fixed in JDK 1.6 (aka Mustang) b53 and later versions.
You can download development versions of Mustang from
https://mustang.dev.java.net/ (requires free registration).
To workaround this bug, switch to another application and back.
