Description (last modified by michael) (diff)

Guest machines in seamless mode are not aware of the host machine's focus. This creates some odd behaviors.

Example one:

  • Create a virtual machine in seamless mode.
  • Switch to a window in the virtual machine.
  • Switch to a window in the host machine.
  • The virtual machine's window still has its titlebar highlighted, as if it has focus.

Example two:

  • Create a virtual machine in seamless mode.
  • Open a menu in the virtual machine.
  • Switch to a window in the host machine.
  • The virtual machine's menu is still open, even though activating another window would normally close it.

This could probably be solved by creating a hidden "focus is outside the machine" window in the guest and focusing it when the seamless window loses focus in the host.

Valid issue, but no time to look at it in the foreseeable future. We might accept contributions if they did not need a lot of time to review.
