If you look at any Windows application you will
see that even though a system menu item is greyed out it still
gets focus when you move the mouse over it. The
same happens in Swing for a JFrame. However, for
a JInternalFrame if a system menu item (like restore)
is greyed out it doesn't get focus.

EVALUATION The complaint is valid: we follow the motif feel even on Windows. Should fix. hania.gajewska@Eng 1999-09-17 This is a problem with JMenu and JPopupMenu, not the JInternalFrame itself. joutwate@eng 2001-01-27 Name: pzR10082 Date: 09/05/2001 Disabled components are never notified about mouse events. Mouse events that are normally forwarded to a component are discarded when this component is disabled. There's no way Swing can recognize that mouse have entered a disabled menu item. ###@###.### 2001-09-05 ======================================================================
