jsui and TAB key

Mar 08 2014 | 4:18 am

Hi all,

While designing a jsui interface I noticed a very strange behavior with the TAB key: although jsui does not receive any keyboard information, it seems that it somehow blocks the reception of the TAB by a "key" object. It blocks it once if the jsui is in the same patcher as the key, and completely if the jsui is inside a bpatcher. Here’s an example:


— Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. —


For the interface I’ve designed, it’s pretty annoying. Is it a bug? Any workarounds?

actually clicking anywhere in the bpatcher hijacks the tab key…

Is it possible that the mouse click listener also blocks the tab information (for instance to be used in the second outlet of the number box)? Is there a way to avoid it?
