Find Keeps Focus

Post by therube »

Find (Ctrl+F) Keeps Focus


(search_for_text_when_you_start_typing=false
- immaterial, but it helps to see the issue)


open Find (Ctrl+F)
close Find (ESC, or hit the 'X' in the dialog)

- at this point in time, focus is NOT

not in the searchbar
not in the results list
arrow keys (up, down, left, right) do not work
ESC does not work

- focus IS still in Find, actually

if you start typing something (that can be found), that something will be found


with above, not using Ctrl+F, instead using FAYT [search_for_text...],
even though the Find dialog box opens, so long as you do not interact
with it - even as much as using the next/prev match keys [instead using
F3/Shift+F3 hotkeys], ESC, arrow-keys, or other actions do properly set
focus / exit the Find dialog as expected

Nice find.

Thanks for the detailed instructions to reproduce the issue.

The issue is caused by hiding the findbar for tabs and not clearing the focus order.
The issue will be fixed in the next alpha update.

Everything 1.5.0.1374a fixes an issue with the focus being lost after closing the findbar.

This fix also applies to the quick findbar if it had focus. (press / in the result list = quick findbar)
