    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.8.0_141"
      also reproducible with java version "9" (build 9+179)


      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      ProductName: Mac OS X
      ProductVersion: 10.13
      BuildVersion: 17A315i

      EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
      Reproducible over VNC / Mac to Mac screen sharing

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      When connecting to macOS 10.13 via VNC/screen sharing, switching between applications causes Java windows to lose keyboard focus, preventing text input.



      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Connect to macOS 10.13 using VNC / screen sharing
      Launch the attached TextDemo.java
      Type some text in the text field
      Switch to another application, e.g. System Preferences
      Click back on the Java window and try to type in the text field

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Java text field gets focus back and text can be input
      ACTUAL -
      Java text field does not receive focus and cannot type text

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      Focus can be restored by clicking on the Java dock icon to switch applications instead of clicking directly on the Java window
