Description Jesse Glick 2004-06-08 19:17:22 UTC
040608, 1.5.0 b54, GTK. I have my Projects, Files, and Favorites tabs slid out as sliding windows. When I create a new file, it is opened in the editor and also selected in one of these tabs. However it seems that the tab is slid in, i.e. gets focus. This should not happen; the editor should always get the focus, and any sliding windows should be correspondingly slid out. I am not sure exactly what is wrong; perhaps the ordering of selection events needs to be changed. Might require some fixes in the window system.
Comment 1 Jiri Rechtacek 2004-06-11 09:56:51 UTC
It needs a change of WindowSystem side, there is no way how to check the state of Explorer mode if it's autohidden or not. AFAIK no API change this favor planned for promoD.
Comment 2 Jesse Glick 2004-06-14 17:18:08 UTC
Note that I'm not requesting different behavior depending on autohide status, really - just requesting that focus be sent to the editor window, not any of the Explorer windows, when the new file is created. If autohide windows are implemented properly, this should have the corollary result that they are hidden because the editor gets focussed, if those windows are in fact set to autohide mode.
Comment 3 Jesse Glick 2004-06-23 00:33:23 UTC
Happens even without sliding windows. Please reevaluate. Jano consider whether this should be P4 or P3.
Comment 4 jrojcek 2004-06-23 09:20:42 UTC
I think this is P3. The correct behavior is that the focus only moves into the editor. If the user invokes New File wizard the currently active window stays active, and after finishing the wizard the new editor tab is activated. The Projects window should not be activated during this operation at all.
Comment 5 Jiri Rechtacek 2004-06-23 15:30:47 UTC
Changed by recommendation, the ProjectTab (nor FilesTab) are not focused, only the path to file is selected and the new file in editor area is activated.

This issue was solved long time ago. Because nobody has reopened it neither added comments, we are verifying/closing it now. If you are still able to reproduce the problem, please reopen. Thanks in advance.
