Re: Cocoa from carbon - cursor tracking issues

  • Hello list,

      I am implementing a cocoa modal panel in a carbon app and just experiencing the same symptoms with the I-Bam cursor not reverting back to the arrow cursor.

      Has there been a solution to this issue.



    and get a similar kind of behavior. When I use the menu command Open Cocoa Window, the window that opens has a text field. When I activate the field, I get an ibeam, when I leave the field, it stays an ibeam. Even after I leave the window it stays an iBeam. If I click in the menu bar, it turns back into a pointer, when I mouse back over the text field, it does not turn back into an iBeam.

    This is quite confusing to users - is there a way to fix it? I tested under both 10.4.2 and 10.3.9.

      Any ideas on this? When I run the dialog in interface builder, cursor tracking works fine. When I call the dialog from carbon, cursor tracking is all messed up. We're trying to migrate our app to cocoa, but we can't move the whole thing at once. Is it possible that our carbon code (MacApp) is simply receiving an event intended for my cocoa window and isn't passing it on to the window?

    I have noticed that some Carbon applications aggressively change the cursor back to arrow at regular time intervals. Could this be something MacApp is doing on your behalf? Can you try creating a simple Carbon application (not MacApp based) and see if displaying your Cocoa dialog from that works as expected?
