Minor issue with Search field, confirmed still present in 2173

Just a minor but frustrating bug still present and confirmed. When entering text in the search field, albums and artists begin populating, taking focus away from search. Confirmed present and reproduced in current build. Focus always stolen after two to three characters entered.

Hi,
I cannot replicate the issue.

Which kind of search are you doing?
Is it contextual search (typing in view)? If yes, which view?
Is it global search (Ctrl+F or clicking search button on the toolbar)?
Any addons installed?

Hi there,

I can confirm (and replicate) the behaviour Lancer talked about. It occurs with the global search and it is very annoying. I am able to type three maybe five letters and then the focus is lost. And if i remember right, Barry told about it too in an earlier posting about search issues.

greetings

Hi,
I also can't replicate :( It must be some timing issue that both Ludek and I missing.

I tried type, pause, Type again, all worked.

I also still cannot replicate, maybe it somehow depends on the last view that is used before performing the global search?

Could you please write down the exact steps to replicate or even better catch it / demonstrating this in a video? e.g. using screencast?

Namely:
- what is the view used before performing global search?
- how exactly you entered the global search (Ctrl+F, search button click) ?
- where is the focus once it is stoled?
