grid 2.5.1 focus problem if FORM has an id field

i have been having a strange problem with grid version 2.5.1. i have posted a couple of times but only now can i identify the problem.

the code below is taken from grid.htm in quickref. i have put the page in a FORM tag, and added a text field

<input type=text name="id">

on both IE7 and firefox, if you click on the grid, nothing happens - it does not take the focus.

remove the text field or rename it and the grid behaves as expected.

obviously i can rename the text field to get it working but i am surprised at such behaviour.

code below:

<script src="../../runtime/lib/aw.js"></script>
<link href="../../runtime/styles/system/aw.css" rel="stylesheet"></link>
/* Alternate row colors */
.aw-alternate-even {background: #fff;}
.aw-alternate-odd {background: #eee;}

<FORM name=viewTest action="" method="post">
<input type=text name="id">
<input type=text name="xx">

I can reproduce this but still do not understand how it could be possible :-( I will try to find out - this is a very strange one.

This is actually a bug in AW - a form element with name="id" breaks mouse events processing. Will be corrected in the next bug-fix release.

We can't use version 2.5.1. because of this problem. When the next bug-fix will be released?

I got bit by this as well, but the element with the ID tag was a <Div> containing the form and form elements. Thought this might help.

Fixed in AW 2.5.2.
