Summary0000506: Modifying focus when creating pad.
DescriptionCurrent version behaviour (SVN 5207):
-New part
-Create sketch, draw & close sketch
-Click pad in tasks

The default length of '10.00' is selected, but it does not have focus
-since it's selected I instinctively directly type in what length I want.
-since it doesn't have focus, my number input instead goes into selecting one of the default views

I'd like to request that the behaviour is changed so that the pad parameters, and the selected '10.00', has focus and that my number input goes to changing the length.

Alternatively, if this behaviour is not deemed desirable, I'd like the '10.00' not to be selected which would indicate that it doesn't have focus.

I've modified the code to reflect my preferred behaviour, if this is deemed desirable. The patch files attached are from SVN diff, but I'm not sure they'll work - the original diff file includes other modifications I've made not relevant to this, I don't know how to exclude them - instead I've also attached a diff file I've modified where I've removed the non-relevant bits, but I'm not sure it's that simple?

If it's not clear what I've done then I'll be happy to post the entire modified files.

Affected are

The fix seems a little convoluted, but if the instruction to setFocus was implemented inside any of the constructors then it failed to work.
TagsNo tags attached.

Perhaps should have been clearer - don't use pad_task.patch - it includes other modifications.

modified_pad_task.patch may or may not be usable as I removed the other modifications by hand.

Oh, also, if this is deemed a useful change (and in the way that I've done it), I'll happily do the same for pocket and fillet.

Ok, ignore all that, much neater, in TaskPadParameters.cpp, at the end of TaskPadParameters constructor, simply replace



       QMetaObject::invokeMethod(ui->doubleSpinBox, "setFocus", Qt::QueuedConnection);

Much better. I thought I'd tried that, but I think I had 'this' instead of 'ui->doubleSpinBox' as the target.
