Description PJ 2012-05-09 18:54:48 UTC
VS 2010
MFA 4.2 RC4 

Steps to reproduce:

Add a button to a layout
Double click the button to open the text/resource editor

Textbox text is selected (MD behavior) or the box at least has focus

Text box does not gain focus


Press tab twice and the box gains focus (but text does not select like MD).
Comment 1 PJ 2012-05-09 20:13:02 UTC
While the assignation is correct - this issue does not occur on MD so I am putting back into MFA/VS (as that's where the code lives).

If you think that's incorrect definitely let me know, but otherwise you'll be changing the product on a number of bugs.

Bugs that were for both I tried to file in MD/Designer with a line saying that it affects VS as well.
Comment 2 PJ 2012-05-11 05:30:57 UTC
Verified fixed in MFA 4.2.0 RC5.

New behavior puts cursor at the beginning of the default string. Filed an enhancement about the consistency of this behavior between VS and MD on this now (bug 5026).
