Description

Name: jk109818			Date: 01/14/2002


FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.4.0-beta3"

Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build
1.4.0-beta3-b84)

Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0-beta3-b84, mixed
mode)


FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION :
Windows Millennium [Version 4.90.3000]


EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
German keyboard layout

A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
Entering a character via ALT + a combination of
numpad digits (for example ALT+0227) doesn't
work properly anymore in Merlin-Beta3.

Characters that have an ASCII code which contains
the same digit twice in a row - such as 55, 166
or 223 - cannot be entered. This means that, when
pressed in a JTextComponent, a keystroke like
ALT+0227 has no effect (it should produce an ??).

This bug results in a total of 41 characters not
being typable (within the range of 32 to 255).
Many of these cannot be accessed by any other
key or key combination which makes it a serious
problem.

It used to work in 1.3.1.


REGRESSION.  Last worked in version 1.3.1

STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
Try to type a keystroke such as ALT+0227
in any standard JTextField or other
JTextComponent (SwingSet can be used).


EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
The character corresponding to the
ASCII digit combination is supposed
to be entered into the JTextComponent,
however it doesn't happen.


This bug can be reproduced always.

Release Regression From : 1.3.1
The above release value was the last known release where this 
bug was knwon to work. Since then there has been a regression.

    JTextComponent process the KeyEvent produced by entering ALT+Numpad
and reflects the corresponding sign at the text area. The problem is
reproducible for AWT text components as well. This is not a Swing bug.
