Description gugrim 2005-09-22 18:54:50 UTC
[ 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
( 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 (requires free registration).

To workaround this bug, switch to another application and back.
