Parent page hotkey fires when popup is being displayed

  • 1
  • Problem
  • Updated 3 years ago
In a situation where an element on a page (e.g. table global action) contains a hotkey sequence, when a popup is displayed, the hotkey for the parent page is firing when the keystroke is pressed.

This can lead to unintended results that might not even be visible to the user since the popup would hide the parent page components from view.

There have been threads about hotkeys in the past (see here and here) that might be related.

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Create page from xml below
2) Preview page
3) Press Ctrl+Shift+I to add an new contact
4) With the popup now visible, press Ctrl+Shift+I 

Expected Behavior
Hotkey for global action does not fire and row is not added to contact table

Actual Behavior
Hotkey fires, row is added to table and another popup appears
