Remember my patch to consolidate taskbar buttons by using the owner of a
In the IDE the designer form, 'Form1' so to say, is not under parental
control, so it has it's own button. This has the effect that when you
click the MainIDE window, it focuses the source editor on top of the
designer form. This is annoying because if you want to drop components,
you will have to focus form1 again each time.
Actual question: could the designer code be easily modified to make the
owner of a designer form the mainide too? And the environment options
window and such too? Then this problem will disappear and everything
will be under one button.
Question #2 (related): Because the environment options dialog (and the
others too i presume) have their own button but are shown modal a
strange thing happens. When the dialog is shown, you can click the main
lazarus ide window, it gets focus, but it won't respond to any clicks.
This is very annoying as one would think the ide has hung itself.
