Description Frank Schönheit 2008-10-20 19:50:19 UTC
- open the attached database document
- in the context menu of the contained control, select "Form..."
- in the form's property browser, switch to the "Data" tab page
- click the drop down button of the "Content" property
- in the drop down window which contains the current value of the "Content"
  property (an SQL command), click, with the mouse, on an arbitrary position
=> the drop down window is closed

The expected result of course is that the cursor is positioned where you clicked
at, like with any other normal text window.

fs->pl: This looks like a VCL problem to me.
When the floating window is opened, then the mouse events occurring in the left
half of the window are indeed forwarded to the floater, while events in the
right half seem to be passed to another window.
You can see this in two ways: Moving the mouse over the left half changes the
mouse pointer to the usual "text input" shape (which is the expected behavior
over a text control), over the right half, it is an arrow.
Also, clicking into the left half of the control indeed focuses it, and sets the
cursor to the click position. Clicking into the right half closes the floating
