Text fields do not have a focus outline
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:04 EDT
Description of Problem:
When you focus a text field by clicking on it or tabbing to it, in a gtk2 app,
the text field doesn't have a focus outline. Not sure if this is intentional,
but I suspect not, as it could be an issue for accessibility.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Focus a text field in a gtk2 app by clicking on it or tabbing to it
No focus outline appears
A focus outline should appear on the text field.
It doesn't seem to matter which theme I use; I see this on all of the included
GTK2 themes. However, with BlueCurve on GTK 1.x applications, a focus outline
appears as expected.
This is working as intended. Similar to the way it works in
Microsoft Windows the focus is indicated by one of:
- The presence of the cursor
- The selected text being displayed in a more vibrant color.
(It's possible for a theme to specify a more Motif-like way of
drawing the focus)
