Description Syam 2016-07-09 10:01:28 UTC
Pressing Delete to delete an article while the 'search articles' text box has focus does not work.

In general, I think there's some bigger problem with the way the article list widget and the feeds list widget gets focus. The colour of the selected item in both of these widgets is duller than the usual colour used for selected items. If you doubleclick an item in the feeds list, the feed's name becomes editable and then the item's background colour resembles that of a properly selected item.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select any feed to display the list of articles
2. Select any article to read it in the preview pane
3. Click on the 'search articles' text box
4. Select some other article
5. Notice that the focus is still on the search text box
6. Try to delete the selected article by pressing delete key
7. Nothing happens because the search text box still has the focus
8. The only way to get out is to click somewhere in the preview pane to shift focus out of the search text box and then press Delete key

Akregator version: 5.2.2
KDE Frameworks 5.23.0
Qt 5.6.0 (built against 5.6.0)
