Text is being selected while resizing dhtmlxLayout in Opera!


When I resize “a” part of dhtmlxLayout from below sample by dragging mouse cursor from top right corner of the “a” part to bottom left corner of the “a” part text beneath mouse cursor within grid attached to “a” part is being selected (though this is not what I intend to do, I only want to resize dhtmlxLayout). I use the following DHTMLX sample: http://www.dhtmlx.com/docs/products/dhtmlxLayout/samples/04_components/02_grid.html

I tried both Opera 9.51 and Opera 10.60 in Windows XP (in Google Chrome 5 and Internet Explorer 8 everything works well without any text selection).

Please explain the reason for such behavior (is it a bug in DHTMLX?).

Thanks in advance for your reply!

it is not a bug. Opera doesn’t provide css property to block selection. Layout covers the cell with the transparent container when a cell is being resized. However, it also doesn’t affect the selection in Opera.
So, unfortunately there is no way to change this behaviour.

Thanks for explanation, it’s clear now!
