Difficult to get to 4th addressing line in New Msg window


(MailNews Core :: Composition, defect, P3, major)


(Not tracked)



(Reporter: esther, Assigned: bugzilla)



Using builds from 12/13 and 12/14 the Addressing area of a Compose window is not
allowing the entry of a address in the 4th line without some difficulty.

1. Launch Messenger
2. Select New Msg
3. Enter a name in the 1st addressing line press <Enter> to get to the next
line, continue adding a name to the 2nd line, then 3rd line then <Enter>

Result: Focus is not moved to the 4th line, the 4th line doesn't even display
until you move the scroll bar up and down.  At this point you have to click the
cursor in that 4th line to add more addresses.
Expected:  After the <Enter> on the third line the cursor should move to the 4th
line and be ready for text entry.

Note: another bug deals with some of the addressee's not getting the message
(bug 21656) this bug is just for the easier access to more than 3 addressing
lines in the Compose window.
Whiteboard: needs hyatt triage
Is this really a general tree bug?  needs triage from hyatt.
Assignee: hyatt → alecf
There should be an EnsureVisible function on the tree that will do this.

Do EnsureVisible on your new row and then set focus to the text field.

Reassigning to alecf, so that he can mark this as dependent on EnsureVisible.

Target Milestone: M13
In order to fix this problem, I need the EnsureVisible API. Alec, what the
status with this function? do you have an open bug for it?
