Affects Version/s: 1.5.1
Fix Version/s: 2.5
Environment:Tested on Windows XP with Firefox 3.6.13 and 8.0.552.224
A pivot applet will never gain focus after a page load. You always have to click on the applet, before it accepts key events. It seems not to be a JDK issue.
I've created to examples which include textfield in the applet. One applet with pivot and one without. Only in the native applet the textfield gains the focus (works with Firefox and Chrome). The pivot never gains automaticly the focus without clicking the applet.
Applet Version (immediate focus works):
Pivot Version (immediate focus doesn't work):
Try to start typing after reload. It works only for the applet version.
