From: Simon Wistow Date: 16:08 on 14 Aug 2003 Subject: auto-highlighting dialogue boxes in X This may just be in GTK or maybe just a particular piece of suckage on behalf of Yahoo Messenger for *nix but ... HIGHLIGHTING THE GROUPS BOX AUTOMATICALLY WHEN OPENING A 'NEW USER' WINDOW IS RETARDED, MMMMKAY Imagine this scenario - I obtain someone's user id, maybe in an email. It matters not. Because I'm in XWindows I highlight it, move to my messenger client, click on New User ... and now I have to go deselect the 'group' entry field, go back, re-highlight the user id and then go back and paste it in. I mean, what use is highlighting that dialogue? In case I want copy the group name back somewhere when I'm done for some reason but am pathologically lazy and so can't do it myself? And whilst I'm ranting about Yahoo Messenger ... people stick interesting URLs in their status messages. Can I somehow click on those urls or maybe even get to somewhere where I can copy them? No. Because that would make too much sense.
