Hi,

I have a problem with FocusListener behaviour on Mac (OS X 10.3.5 and
Eclipse 3.1).

See my problem in the example below.

I use a FocusListener on Text widget text1 and I display a message in the
focusLost method.
If the focus is currently on text1 and I click on the button, this message
does not appear, whereas it works fine with Linux.

Any suggestion ?
Thanks
Helene

Buttons don't take focus when clicked on the Mac?

This seems to be the correct behavior on MacOS X (but I couldn't verify it
with Apple's HI Guidelines).
If you "turn on full keyboard access" on the "Keyboard Shortcuts" page of
the "Keyboard & Mouse" preference panel, you can better see the control that
has focus.
Now in any Apple application (e.g. Finder) open a dialog that has both a
text field and a button (e.g. "Connect to Server" in Go menu), click into
text field. Then click onto "+" button. Observe that focus isn't removed
from text field.
If you use the Tab key, you can assign focus to buttons too (and focus is
removed correctly from the text field).

Hi Steve,

Sorry for my late answer (and my english too !) but I've just found it.

My problem is that I need to capture focus lost events on each of my Text
controls, howeover, on Mac, this event isn't triggered if I click on a
button, without leaving the Text control with TAB.

.... because focus doesn't actually leave the Text control. Is the blinking
i-beam still in the text control after the button is clicked? If so, the
Text control still has focus.

Did you ever found a solution to this? I'm having the same issue.
