Focus Can Be Given To E, Without E Focusing

Post by therube »

oh, this is a weird one...

focus can be given to Everything
- without Everything having focus ;-)

i believe it will have to do with an overflow condition
- say of the /name/ field...

say you've got a mp3 playing (in your mp3 player), right-hand side of screen
Everything is open, left-hand side of screen

mp3 player has focus
move mouse cursor over Everything window (do not click)
move mouse cursor over an overflow item
- because it is an overflow item, & because mouse is hovering the item, Everything will display the item including overflow data
now, /gently/ click on that item (actually, it doesn't even need to be too gentle)
- at that point, item is highlighted
BUT
notice that /focus/ is actually still on mp3 player
& that Everything does not show it to be focused

mouse cursor is still over Everything
overflow item is highlighted in Everything
press a mp3 player hotkey (say F8, on my end, Next item in playlist)
mp3 player plays the next song


no big deal, & it is an odd occurrence, but i guess it could have undesired consequences
say if you hit the DEL key, expecting to delete (highlighted) file in Everything,
& instead some other program reads that DEL keys & (hard) deletes... something...



(Reminds me of a Mozilla bug..., here, Bug 1554490 Firefox is not focused on first open of a NEW Profile.)

Thanks for the bug report therube,

Everything is not being brought into the foreground after the tooltip is shown.

I am working on a fix..

There's still an issue with Everything not being set the foreground window when full row select is disabled.

It will be fixed in the next alpha update.
