Description Alexander Todorov 2008-08-07 08:56:17 EDT
Description of problem:
When adding comments sometimes people use the <Tab> key to navigate to the submit button. This will go throught the need info checkbox which is right after the text entry field and will make it selected.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Focus the add comment text entry field
2. Navigate with <Tab> to the submit button

Actual results:
Need info checkbox is selected /and will change bug state also I guess/

Expected results:
Need info checkbox is not selected. It should be only selected when the user decides to do so, i.e. presses the <space> key

Additional info:
I think this is a regression against the previous version because it changes behavior and will cause many bugs to go into wrong state
Comment 1 Alexander Todorov 2008-08-07 08:57:35 EDT
The checkbox is selected after the focus moves to the "need info from" drop-down list.
Comment 2 David Lawrence 2008-08-08 14:19:37 EDT
This is because I was using onfocus for the javascript that automatically checks the box when the drop down or text field for needinfo info was focused. I have now changed it to onchange will will not automatically check the needinfo checkbox by simply tabbing across it. You will now have to choose a value from the drop down or type some text in the other field.

Committed and should show up in the next update.
