Description Luca Bruera 2005-07-15 13:54:36 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Epiphany/1.4.4

Description of problem:
The version 2.10 of gnome-python-extras does not include a wrapper for the gnome_applet_request_focus method, thus, due to the new focus policies in gnome 2.10, it is not possible to write a python applet including a text entry of a component needing keyboard focus. Old applications need to be ported to this new API, or won't be able to get focus.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-python-extras-2.10

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run a python applet with a text entry
2.Click on the text entry

  

Actual Results:  No cursor in the text entry, so it is not possible to input text.

Expected Results:  Cursor to appear in the text entry field, and being able to input text.

Additional info:

A wrapper is available in the unstable release (2.11) of this component.
