A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
This is an upstream bugreport for:
We initiallly closed this bugreport as a duplicate of JDK-8031485 and patiently waited for its correction in JDK 8u20.
It appears the problem is still here: we cannot close a dialog by pressing "Enter" key in a combobox which has focus. It works fine with JDK7.
I suspect the fix of JDK-8031485 is incomplete as its comment only mentions handling of Escape key, not Enter, and the added test does only check correct handling of Escape, not Enter. We tried to close the dialog with Escape key and it works, so there's still something to do in JDK8 to get Enter key works as it does in JDK7.
REGRESSION. Last worked in version 7u67
This bug can be reproduced always.
