GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 651407
Deprecate unneeded focus-related methods from AtkUtil and AtkComponent
Last modified: 2013-10-18 11:36:37 UTC
The following methods should be marked as deprecated within ATK:
After marking them as deprecated, we should file bugs against each toolkit which is using the newly-deprecated methods.
[Mass-reassigning open atk bug reports for better trackability as requested in https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=653179 .
If you have watched the previous assignee of this bug report as a workaround for actually getting notified of changes in atk bugs, you yourself will now have to add email@example.com to your watchlist at the bottom of https://bugzilla.gnome.org/userprefs.cgi?tab=email to keep watching atk bug reports in GNOME Bugzilla.
Sorry for the noise: Feel free to filter for this comment in order to mass-delete the triggered bugmail.]
I just discovered the extra layers of obfuscation around focus tracking in gail and I have to full-heartedly agree: get rid of these; I'm going to drop the implementations of atk_component_add/remove_focus_handler in gail soon.
As for deprecation notes:
atk_component_add_focus_handler is just a glorified way to connect to the AtkObject::focus-event signal.
Sorry for the delay, I was on holiday.

Yes, as I already said on bug 649575.
In fact this bug is just a offspring bug of 649575. Most of the reasons, discussion and atk hackfest conclusions are explained there.

Bug 650669 tracks the same but for the case of Cally.
All this methods were deprecated as part of bug 649575. Closing bug.
