#4494 grid-view data entry can require double tab to change focus

R2.6.0

We've built a custom dialog using the grid control or entering some data. And we have found that when trying to tab from the first field to the second, you have to tab twice in order to switch the focus.

If you look at this package, we feel the issue is here, but were hesitant to modify given how common the routine is:

org.compiere.grid.ed

1-VLookup at actionText()function line:889 (Request text Focus)

We'd really like to see this fixed.

Thanks,
Peter

    What version of compiere are you using?

    Did you only notice this in your custom window? I did a quick test in 2.6.1 in one of our windows and did not see the double-tab issue.

    Is the functionality affected? Or is this a UI-only issue where you are being forced to tab twice?

    I should have remembered that other bug report...i even appended to it last year.

    One reason is that I thought it was fixed - there were some improvements to the grid in 260c - which by the way is the release we are on.

    The issue I'm referring to is the first item in that other bug report - that at times you have to hit a key before entering data after you've tabbed into that field.YOu should be able to run into it if you try to do order entry completely in grid view.

    So it is still very much here in 260c.

    If you want to close this support request in lieu of 410218, that's fine.
    Thanks,
    Peter
