Tested versions: - 2.0.3 Win64 - Wireshark-win64-2.1.0-3015-g21090ca.exe (2.1.0-3015-g21090ca (v2.1.0rc0-3015-g21090ca from master))

If I capture on LAN with no capture filter and then select a filter in the filter input and no packets are found, the filter input always loses focus after approximately 200 ms if I focus it with a mouse click. Do I do something wrong or is this a bug?

Thanks in advance!

I assume the capture is still going? It sounds as though the packet list/last packet (which is not visible) is getting the focus, which is not okay IMHO.

What happens if you do stop the capture?

@Jaap: Yes, the capture is still going. If I stop the capture and then click into the filter input, the focus stays there.

This seems like a bug in the Qt interface. If not already there (haven't checked), you could file a bugreport describing this scenario.

Found the bug in bugzilla Sry, I thought checking here would also show tickets.
