Description Jiri Prox 2008-05-28 12:26:16 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 20080525200304)
Java: 1.6.0_10-beta; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 11.0-b11
System: Linux version 2.6.22-14-generic running on i386; UTF-8; en_US (nb)
Userdir: /home/jp159440/.netbeans/dev

Now, when item is selected in list of macro (Options-> Editor->Macros) the focus is moved to Macro Code. This makes
browsing the list very hard, since the user must put focus back and then he can move to next item.
IMO it would be better if behaves like code template browsing - e.g. without focus move
Comment 1 Vitezslav Stejskal 2008-06-06 10:24:09 UTC
I see, it should be easy to fix. We might just want to intercept ENTER keystrokes and move the focus to the code editor
panel. Ideally the whole panel should be easy to control by keyboard.

Comment 4 tusharvjoshi 2009-08-11 20:20:55 UTC
I have attached a patch which works as requested in this issue.
The table selection does not shift the focus to the macro code text field.  When ENTER key is pressed then the focus is 
shifted to the Macro Code Field.

Please review
