Ticket #11630 (confirmed defect)
unable to tab out of a GenericDatePickerCtrl
|Reported by:||mrooney1||Owned by:|
Reported after requested to do so in http://groups.google.com/group/wxpython-users/browse_thread/thread/77a4396249dc984d.
I'm noticing that on Ubuntu 9.10 with wxPython 188.8.131.52-0ubuntu1 I can tab into a DatePickerCtrl (Generic as is the case on GTK), but not tab out of, either forward or backward. I've pasted a minimal sample to demonstrate this at http://python.pastebin.com/fe7c1621 (and attached it); you'll notice you can tab into it from the second control and shift+tab back from the fourth, but there is no way to get out of it it appears!
Apparently on OSX tabs work as expected, so perhaps it is a bug in a GenericDatePickerCtrl?
Anyway, if this is a bug that needs to be fixed in wxPython but there is a workaround, I'd LOVE to hear it, however dirty it may be, as this bug in my app is milestoned to be fixed for the impending release.
