Default Defining an ArrayList Variable and adding items - 05-06-2008, 09:12 AM


We are using a Mac OS 10.4, a student defined an arrayList variable of type Object. When she attempts to use the new item button to add items to the list, we are able to see objects to select to add to the list. In fact, a dropdown of objects currently in her world is presented but when we mouse over and click an object to add to the list, nothing happens. Is this a bug on the Mac with Alice? Here is what we see? A simplified example.

Things should work like you expect - just verified that on a PC with XP. I do reacall that some mouse setups didn't work as expected with Mac's - particularly if they were set up for a left handed user. In particular, I seem to recall probelms in actually selecting items - but couldn't find anything with a very fast search.

Might check to see if that was the case and then do a search of the forum with Google keys for "left handed," etc.
