Description bht 2003-10-03 09:04:07 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200308251153) Operating System: Windows 98 version 4.10 running on x86 Java; VM; Vendor: 1.4.1; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 1.4.1-b21; Sun Microsystems Inc. When I edit a list box with the keyboard and try to repeat that then it doesn't work. How to reproduce: - Switch to SDI mode. - Select a Java source file in Explorer. - Press [Ctrl+1]. The Property sheet pops up. - Use [Arrow down] to move to the Execution -> Compiler row. - Press [F2] and change the selection. - Press [Enter]. - Press [F2] again. Expected behavior: One should be able to repeat this multiple times. Actual behavior: After pressing [F2] again, the property sheet stops responding completely to any keyboard navigation. There is no focus. Possible workarounds are: - Use the mouse. - Switch to another window and back to the property sheet.

Reassigning this issue to myself. Reproduced on WinXP. Fix is probably to call requestFocusInWindow on stopCellEditing(). Not sure yet where focus is ending up - possibly on null. The core problems are that 1. Swing doesn't define well where focus should go when a focused component is removed from a container - what should happen is that the FocusTraversalPolicy of the container should be used, but that's not what does happen. The easy answer to this is "well, don't remove components that have focus, silly!" but that's exactly the behavior of a JTable (or for that matter a JTree's rename field). 2. The old NetBeans window system does strange things with using focus to track the activated TopComponent, and injects additional focus events into the flow - where, in a standalone app, focus goes from Component A to Component B, in NetBeans focus goes from Component A to null to Component B. That's fixed in the new window system but I'll still need to do something here.
