Description

Name: skT45625			Date: 12/05/2000


java full version "1.3.0_01"

I'm local = FR
I use Netscape 6 but same problem with Netscape 4.75
I use english version of these navigators.

Really simple to reproduce the bug:
test the applet
http://192.9.48.9/products/plugin/1.3.0_01/demos/jfc/SwingSet2/SwingSet2.html
and try to type '%' and some others characters in a JTextField:
Nothing appends !

Rq: no pbm with JRE 1.2.2

EVALUATION I am unable to reproduce this and have emailed the submitter for more details. scott.violet@eng 2000-12-14 From the submitter: Their is not only '%' whish doesn't work. List of characters doesn't displaying ( one key per line ): 1 & (same key ) 2 ? 3 " 5 ( 7 ? 8 _ 9 ? 0 ? ) ? % ? ^ ? $ ? * ? ! ? : / Displaying: 4 ' 6 - = + ; . , ? Notice: when a key doesn't display, the corresponding shifted key doesn't work neither. >I'll plead ignorant, do you use a special keyboard too? I use a standard french keyboard. Additional informations: 1- I set local=en_US from local=fr_FR but it doens't change anything to this point. 2- The problem doesn't occur inside a stand-alone application. It's an applet 1.3-specific problem. 3- The bug occurs in JRE version 1.3.0 and 1.3.0-01 but NOT in 1.2.2. Waiting for a patch or next JRE version, I use JRE 1.2.2 but I have to recompile our projects which are usually built in 1.3 and it changes many things in installation processes of our products. This bug is a pretty hard problem for our company. scott.violet@eng 2001-01-03 Name: pzR10082 Date: 01/25/2001 I can't reproduce this with Merlin, too. I use: - Mandrake Linux 7.2, kernel 2.2.17 - Netscape 4.75 - Java plugin 1.4.0-beta-b48 ###@###.### 2000-01-25 I've attached a test program I sent to the submitter. I have also attached the output they got from running it. You'll notice that for many of these key combinations keyTyped events aren't generated. As this appears to be an AWT issue, I'm reassinging. Submitter noted that problem doesn't occur with IBM vm. I'll also note that submitter is very helpful, email him for more information if you needed it. scott.violet@eng 2001-03-05 This is probably another instance of 4347983. Commit to fix in Merlin. eric.hawkes@eng 2001-03-05 I tested on redhat linux by hooking up a german PC keyboard and changing the xmodmap to a french layout. It's pretty broken with 1.3, but seems to work well with Ladybird. Probably a dupe of 4371923. eric.hawkes@eng 2001-03-07 Emailed the submitter for more information (i.e. his xmodmap) on March 7, 2001. eric.hawkes@eng 2001-03-07 The submitter's xmodmap is as follows: keycode 8 = keycode 9 = Escape keycode 10 = ampersand 1 onesuperior exclamdown keycode 11 = eacute 2 asciitilde oneeighth keycode 12 = quotedbl 3 numbersign sterling keycode 13 = apostrophe 4 braceleft dollar keycode 14 = parenleft 5 bracketleft threeeighths keycode 15 = minus 6 bar fiveeighths keycode 16 = egrave 7 grave seveneighths keycode 17 = underscore 8 backslash trademark keycode 18 = ccedilla 9 asciicircum plusminus keycode 19 = agrave 0 at degree keycode 20 = parenright degree bracketright questiondown keycode 21 = equal plus braceright dead_ogonek keycode 22 = BackSpace keycode 23 = Tab ISO_Left_Tab keycode 24 = a A ae AE keycode 25 = z Z guillemotleft less keycode 26 = e E keycode 27 = r R paragraph registered keycode 28 = t T tslash Tslash keycode 29 = y Y leftarrow yen keycode 30 = u U downarrow uparrow keycode 31 = i I rightarrow idotless keycode 32 = o O oslash Ooblique keycode 33 = p P thorn THORN keycode 34 = dead_circumflex dead_diaeresis dead_diaeresis dead_abovering keycode 35 = dollar sterling currency dead_macron keycode 36 = Return keycode 37 = Control_L keycode 38 = q Q at Greek_OMEGA keycode 39 = s S ssharp section keycode 40 = d D eth ETH keycode 41 = f F dstroke ordfeminine keycode 42 = g G eng ENG keycode 43 = h H hstroke Hstroke keycode 44 = j J keycode 45 = k K kra ampersand keycode 46 = l L lstroke Lstroke keycode 47 = m M mu masculine keycode 48 = ugrave percent dead_circumflex dead_caron keycode 49 = twosuperior asciitilde notsign keycode 50 = Shift_L keycode 51 = asterisk mu dead_grave dead_breve keycode 52 = w W lstroke Lstroke keycode 53 = x X guillemotright greater keycode 54 = c C cent copyright keycode 55 = v V leftdoublequotemark grave keycode 56 = b B rightdoublequotemark apostrophe keycode 57 = n N keycode 58 = comma question dead_acute dead_doubleacute keycode 59 = semicolon period horizconnector multiply keycode 60 = colon slash periodcentered division keycode 61 = exclam section dead_belowdot dead_abovedot keycode 62 = Shift_R keycode 63 = KP_Multiply keycode 64 = Alt_L Meta_L keycode 65 = space keycode 66 = Caps_Lock keycode 67 = F1 keycode 68 = F2 keycode 69 = F3 keycode 70 = F4 keycode 71 = F5 keycode 72 = F6 keycode 73 = F7 keycode 74 = F8 keycode 75 = F9 keycode 76 = F10 keycode 77 = Num_Lock Pointer_EnableKeys keycode 78 = Scroll_Lock keycode 79 = KP_Home KP_7 keycode 80 = KP_Up KP_8 keycode 81 = KP_Prior KP_9 keycode 82 = KP_Subtract keycode 83 = KP_Left KP_4 keycode 84 = KP_Begin KP_5 keycode 85 = KP_Right KP_6 keycode 86 = KP_Add keycode 87 = KP_End KP_1 keycode 88 = KP_Down KP_2 keycode 89 = KP_Next KP_3 keycode 90 = KP_Insert KP_0 keycode 91 = KP_Delete KP_Decimal keycode 92 = keycode 93 = keycode 94 = less greater keycode 95 = F11 keycode 96 = F12 keycode 97 = Home keycode 98 = Up keycode 99 = Prior keycode 100 = Left keycode 101 = keycode 102 = Right keycode 103 = End keycode 104 = Down keycode 105 = Next keycode 106 = Insert keycode 107 = Delete keycode 108 = KP_Enter keycode 109 = Control_R Multi_key keycode 110 = Pause Break keycode 111 = Print Execute keycode 112 = KP_Divide keycode 113 = Mode_switch Multi_key keycode 114 = keycode 115 = Super_L keycode 116 = Super_R Multi_key keycode 117 = Menu keycode 118 = keycode 119 = keycode 120 = The remaining entries in the list are all empty. The percent is under keycode 48 (looks like shift-ugrave). eric.hawkes@eng 2001-03-08 This was probably fixed with all the keyboard work we did in Ladybird and Merlin (e.g. 4371923). eric.hawkes@eng 2001-03-26 We tried to contact the submitter, but no response. I'll ask again after beta3 is released. ###@###.### 2001-08-25 This bug requires a French keyboard to verify, which most of us do not have. Therefore, SQE does not need to verify this fix. ###@###.### 2002-04-17
