Description Jan-Marek Glogowski 2018-08-24 12:32:41 UTC
This is a regression introduced by commit 3f31455fdd10 ("tdf#109353 - Base: Listbox doesn't show a value."), which tried to fix my rollover handling from commit 3f94cf15f9bb ("Fix focus and rollover for vcl::ListBox") in KDE.

The commit fixes KDE but breaks at least Windows and the gen plugin.

Now I'm not sure if rollover for a focused widget makes much sense.

My implementation drops the rollover highlight when focused and just draw the focused text highlighted, if focus rects are actually supported by the platform.

This needs review on all platforms and VCL plugins.

Patches for master are already commited. I'll post a backport, if it's ok for all platforms.

Quick test: start the LO math module (soffice --math) and click on the binary operators list box.
