Re: [XaraXtreme-dev] Galleries and focus handling

The reason I say that is, if we let external agencies move the focus around it will; (a.) break various parts of rules 1-7, thus making focus handling not meet the streamlined requirements any more and (b.) it could break the implementation of those rules which is likely to be moving focus around and relying on it being in certain windows at certain times.

So we need to so /something/ about it even if that just means detecting that that's going on and suggesting to the user that he turn it off!



As far as a user is concern what they have just done is tantamount to clicking on the control. I should also make it clear that I'm talking about _editable_ controls and not radio box, etc. If a user has set his system up to behave in a particular way (no distributions would be shipped with this enable), we shouldn't be dictating this policy. The same code that stops a user giving focus to a non-editable control, in the click-focus setup will stop it happening in the hover-focus setup.
