Hi!
He is a question I got from one of my clients that I am supporting.

"When users click in a field, e.g. Description, it automatically selects all text in that field. Alt+Tab-ing to another window and back again also automatically selects the entire field. This is most annoying because they/I often don’t notice and as soon as you type something, the previous content is deleted. Can this behaviour be changed to NOT select the content?"

I wonder if anyone knows if this behaviour can be "swithed of"?

My client is running MBPM 9.3.2.2.

Regards,
Henrik

Found a bunch of javascript in BpmAjaxLibrary.js where they're doing this.select() ... you could try removing that i suppose and play around to see which one removes the behavior. But like everything else with metastorm - this is almost guaranteed to break something else.

The other sad workaround is attach a global event to fields on the form to check if a field is selected and throw a warning if a keyDown happens when the field is selected
