Description Bill Chatfield 1999-06-09 02:39:21 UTC
Deiconifying a window does not set the focus to that window. This is functionality that is critical to usability.
Comment 1 Jay Turner 1999-06-29 14:39:59 UTC
This works correctly under "click to focus", but not under "sloppy focus" Would not expect it to work under "pointer focus" as that does not make sense for it to.

I have upgraded to all the new RPMs on www.gnome.org. It still does not work under "click to focus" for me. Actually, about 30% of the time it does, but most of the time it does not. Try minimizing all your windows and then "unminimize" them by clicking on the task bar with your left mouse button. They don't get the focus for me. I'm using enlightenment with the "big clean" theme. Using "pointer focus" makes the problem irrevelant. I've not tried "sloppy focus" because I don't understand how that could actually be a usable option.

How are you deiconifying the window? ------- Additional Comments From 08/31/99 23:11 ------- I deiconify the each window by clicking on its task bar button with the left mouse button. This deiconifies the window, but the window does not get the focus. This is the normal way to deiconify a window in systems like Microsoft Windows and KDE. Your users are going to expect it to work the way I am expecting it to work. I have several machines with GNOME and they all work this way, which I think is incorrect. Certainly, with the default settings of GNOME it works this way. In CDE, KDE, and Microsoft Windows anytime you deiconify a window, it gets the focus. Certainly in Microsoft Windows and KDE when you deiconify a window by clicking on its task bar button with the left mouse button, the windows gets the focus.

This was a bug in the gnome-pager applet with a race condition between showing the window and giving it focus. I've fixed the problem in our package now.
