Subject Re: Strange focus issue on Windows XP with tables
Date Wed, 17 Aug 2011 16:01:06 GMT
Thanks for the fast response and for your help.  This issue has been
happening for a while and has finally gotten to me.  See my responses below.

*So I have not gone through debugging the Pivot code but it appears as
though it may be a focus issue, but I'm not sure.  No, this does not occur
when focus changes to another application and back to the pivot app.*

*No, it appears to behave fine when I use Windows+L.  I don't even
technically lock my screen but when I press ctrl+alt+del I get a Windows
security window that asks me what to do (Lock Computer, Log Off, Shut Down,
Change Password, Taask Manager, Cancel), from here I just have to hit cancel
and I see the pivot issue.*

*Firefox 3.6.13

Java 1.6.0_22*

*Yes I see multiple rows being selected, now i can cause multiple rows to go
blue bg with white lettering, and I am not holding shift or ctrl.  It
behaves as if I were holding ctrl though.

Here's another wierd thing I'm seeing, once I cause this issue and am
selecting multiple rows, if I hit any button on my keyboard it goes back to
normal.  If I hit the letter 'a' or the space bar it stops selecting
multiple and returns to normal. *
