extragear/graphics/digikam/digikam (2009-08-13 17:03)
SVN commit 1010882 by aclemens: setFocus whenever the mode of the iconview changes. Right now we only setFocus when we where in preview mode, so if you previewed an image and changed the album, the iconview was focused and keyboard actions where possible. If you just selected an image and changed the album, the focus was lost. BUG:202779 1 file changed
