Chat window unexpectedly losing keyboard focus

Post by Nom » Tue Mar 10, 2009 8:00 pm

Situation: Typing in chat window, when event happens that causes focus shift (e.g. a die roll is received, and roll window pops up).

What happens: Focus is immediately lost from chat window while I am still typing, which means I then send random control commands to the main battleground app. I then need to figure out what the heck I just did and put it all back.

I may have to change it so that the Dice Roll Results window never pops open on its own, and provide a quick and easy way to see the last roll that came in.

That might be a good change anyway. Because another pet annoyance of mine is working on a die macro when someone else rolls, and suddenly the window changes and clobbers my working.

We already get roll notifications via the chat, and you could perhaps add a button on the chat console to activate the recent rolls info too? I figure that rolls should only be pro-actively shown if the roll display window is showing. Otherwise just notify the user and let them voluntarily open the history?

In v1.4f, incoming die rolls won't disrupt what you're doing if you're in the middle of creating a macro, but the dice roll report will still appear in the Chat window.
