Go to and open a dialog and tab around the tab cycle. There is an extra tab stop on the dialog itself that should not be there.

Dialogs should always have at least one widget inside, e.g. an OK button for a message. If the author left one off then as a fall back the dialog itself could be given focus.

I thought the "extra" tab stop was on the dialog title and was therefore necessary. If not, then this is related to #4025, #4411, #4413.

Also see #4025, #4411, #4413.

oops, meant that last comment for 5134.

Yes, the goal is that in 1.1 focus will go to the first item in the dialog. Thus, this ticket depends upon on #4413

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

fixed in [12144]. Now the first focusable item in the dialog gets focus when it is opened. If there is no focusable item the dialog container itself gets focus (rather than the title bar).
