Ref: IRC conversation with zarroba.
<zarroba> The situation is the following <zarroba> I have a window that is shown and then I activate it with activate() for the window to gain input focus <zarroba> when I hide the window and if I select an editbox I can't write to it <CE|away> you select the editbox with the mouse? <zarroba> the first window is still active and the root checks it first, so sends the event to it <zarroba> yes <CE|away> hmm that does not sound right at all :) <CE|away> the edit box and 'hidden' window are siblings at the same level in the hierarchy? <zarroba> yeah, I've added a call to deactivate when I hide the window and it works just fine <zarroba> nope <CE|away> ok. Definitely sounds like a bug :) <zarroba> the window I'm hiding and showing has an editbox and the activate is on this editbox <zarroba> maybe I have too many editboxs :) <CE|away> Ah, so the editbox on the window that gets hidden is active, and this prevents subsequent activation of a different editbox? <zarroba> yes <CE|away> ok. I have made a note and will investigate properly tomorrow. This is with version 0.6.0? <zarroba> that's it. getActiveChild of root returns that editbox instead of the visible editbox that I have selected with the mouse <zarroba> nope. 0.5
