solved:lost focus of the search field after 2,3 or 4 letters

Post by hostelli » Sat Nov 19, 2011 9:15 pm

Hi,

every time I fill the search field with some letters, it stops after 2, 3 or 4 inputs an the focus is lost.
I´ve to click in the search field to continue my input.

I´ve tried a lot of things in the options (Everything-1.2.1.451a and Everything-1.2.1.371) without success.

Thks for help

Is "Everything" still the the foreground window after the focus is lost?
Try pressing tab, are you able to re-focus the edit control after focus is lost?

When the edit focus is lost, can you see what control has stolen the focus?

Try running in debug mode (Everything.exe -debug), what is displayed in the debug console when the focus is lost?

For a long time I searched for this focus grabbing prog - but I can´t identify a systematic correlation between Everything and another prog.

Trying the debug mode, I could not find anything suspicious.
Here a part of the log if I try to write "hostelli" - focus is lost after "hos"

restore selection <proir count 0 folders, 0 files, 0 special)

It´s not a big problem for me to reactivate the window - so, if there is no solution...

Thanks

after uninstalling AnVir Task Manager Pro, the focus remains in the searchfield :roll:

Wonder if AnVir may have used some hotkey combo or the like that was conflicting with Everything?
