Description drewjensen.inbox 2007-06-24 21:30:57 UTC
To recreate do the following:

Create a new Text document
Drop any control onto the document
Open the property editor for the control
Use Alt=Tab to display the icons for open windows, note that the icon for this
new text file is displayed.

Now from the Event tab of property editor open the Assign Action dialog for any

Again use Alt-Tab, you will see that the icon for the current Text document has
disappeared. The only way to get back to this window now is to use your mouse.

This odd behavior happens in both 2.2.1 and 2.3m_216

TM->MRU: please have a look,... seems to be more a writer- than a
framework-issue. Thanks in advance

I can confirm this, reassign to the right developer and set target.

AFAIK, this is a OS problem: What we have is a top-level window (the document
window) with a non-modal, floating child window (the property browser). Modal to
this child window, additional child windows/dialogs are opened. In this
situation, Windows somehow removes the document window from the Alt-Tab list.

We can perhaps make the dialogs modal to the document window, I'm not sure
whether this works, we must ensure then that the property browser keeps
non-functional as long as the dialog is open. This might be very difficult to
achieve, across the wide variety of window managers we encounter in the wild.

Reset assigne to the default "".
