Cannot Type in Some Dialogs

System:
Xubuntu/Ubuntu (issue on both)
JDK 1.6.0_10
DBVIS 6.0.9
Compiz turned off

In some dialogs, primarily create new database/table and alter table, the textfields won't allow me to type in t hem. The only way around that is to do something that forces an error. For example, if I choose to create a new database I can't type in the name for the database until I hit Execute, the error dialog shows up, I dismiss that, and then I can type in the text field.

I did a search but didn't find a similar thread. And ideas?

Gregg,

We are running Ubuntu 7 and 8 (standard configs) and it works fine. I suspect that what you are seeing is related to your environment.

I found the following which may assist finding the cause:

Thanks. As I said, I do not have Compiz turned on. It is disabled. I also run IntelliJ IDEA and I do not have this problem with it. Only DbVisualizer. I might try running with with Java5 and seeing if the problem still exists. I don't believe this is an environment issue.

Just be to be more clear....

The compiz/java issue typically produces the blank dialogs which I don't get. I've researched this bug quite a bit in the past. It is the reason I don't use Compiz. I run quite a few java based applications. There is another focus issue with Compiz + Java if you try and use an AWT_MTOOLKIT environment setting (hack) to try and deal with the compiz + java bug. This causes similar behavior to what I am experiencing.

However, the Java+Compiz bugs are intermittent where as the issue I described happens every single time. And again, it only happens in DbVisualizer. I tried Java 1.5.0_16 and the bug still exists.

In case it matters, I do own a license for DbVisualizer.

Thanks. Gregg

Gregg,

Problems like these are very difficult when we are unable to reproduce, along with the fact that it only happen a few users.

Do you see the same problem in the latest 6.0.13 version? Have you tried different look and feels (set in tool properties)?

Does the text fields that don't accept input have another look than a text field accepting input (like shading, color, etc)?

Regards

Is there a Solution for this?

Urkman,

The workaround is to press Execute in the actions dialog then press No in the confirmation dialog that appear. Once it disappear you are able to edit text fields... Note that this procedure must be repeated every time the actions dialog is displayed.

We are working on a permanent fix.

Thanks!

Best Regards
