Too many times I need to drag something on a window that dissappears if i try to click on another larger window underneath (in Windows XP).
| [ ] item0
| [ ] item1
| [ ] item2
| [ ] it[window2]__
| [ ] it|
| [ ] it|__________
| [ ]item6
If i try to drag something from window1 to window2, the window1 becomes active, and windows2 becomes inactive and goes under window1. Therefore when I grab the item, the window i want to drop the items goes away. So I have to go back and move window2 somewhere else and try to drag and drop.
To solve this the windows should become active/inactive at mouse releases NOT mouse clicks.
Also, related to this. If there is a mouse release, but on the same window, then window remains inactive, even if i have clicked someplace else outside the window.
 I’ve tested this in Zeta and it seem to do it diffrently, but works. I’m not shure if BeOS does the same thing. In Zeta, if I drag something no window dissappears but waits to see on which I want to drop. And the window on which I drop the item becomes active and the rest inactive.
