Description Ann Sunhachawee 2002-12-03 22:11:21 UTC
S1S4u1. Behavior on Win2k and Solaris: In the property sheet, select any of the properties that has a string text field (e.g. Name property of a java field). Select the value and change it, for instance, to "X" from "Y". If user shift-tab or uses mouse to move focus to another node, then the value changes to X. Behavior on Win2K only: However, if you push tab after changing it, then the value resets to "Y". On solaris, the value "X" is taken when user pushes tab. All platforms should behave the same, and windows platform should behave like solaris.

On Solaris, enter a string property with value X. Change it to Y. Press tab or shift tab. Value is now Y. On Windows, enter a string property with value X. Change it to Y. Press tab or shift tab. Value is now Y. It's possible that you are referring to secondary propertysheet values not being immediately updated. There is a common bug in a number of modules where a settings node for say, "SomeProperty" fires a property change for the value of "some_property". For performance, PropertySheet was made more efficient - it doesn't rebuild itself from scratch unless it knows it's really displaying the property that changed. Unfortunately, that exposed this bug in many module.
