Mouse select moves window (Mac)

Discussion in 'Java' started by Magnus Gunnarsson, Feb 2, 2004.

  1. This problem occurs in several places, but it is most obvious in this
    example: In a simple dialog with e.g. a JTextArea the user should be
    able to press-and-drag to select a portion of the text. As it is now,
    press-and-drag *does* select, but at the same time the window moves the
    entire dialog, as if the top bar had been pointed at. That makes the
    selection very difficult.

    As I understand it there is something strange in the message handling,
    so that the select mechanism does not consume the event properly, but
    passes it on to the window move mechanism. I tried to consume the event
    in a separate event handler, without success.

    This must be a known problem. Anybody?
