2.5.2 not working as a drop in replacement to 2.5.1

Alex;

I thought 2.5.2 would be a drop in replacement to 2.5.1. When I replace 2.5.1 with 2.5.2 my buttons stop responding. I can click aand see the button depress, but my function does not work. Is the issue with the ID tags fixed?

Here is how I'm calling the button function.

<script>
var ViewLeadsbutton = new AW.UI.Button;
ViewLeadsbutton.setControlText("View Leads");
document.write(ViewLeadsbutton);

ViewLeadsbutton.onClick = function(){
if (Password()){if (Level>=1){window.parent.showProgressBar('Loading Leads',1);window.parent.content.location='showattendees.exe';} }

}
</script>

Some additional information. The buttons stop working if I set focus to a text field. I'm using IE 7.

Here ia a sample of the problem:

<!-- fix box model in firefox/safari/opera -->
<style type="text/css">

-moz-box-sizing: border-box;
-webkit-box-sizing: border-box;
}

body {font: 12px Tahoma}
</style>

<!-- include links to the script and stylesheet files -->
<script src="../../runtime/lib/aw.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

obj.onClick = function(){

};

</script>

<Textarea id="text1" rows=19 cols=40 onblur="Javascript:document.getElementById('text1').focus();"></textarea>

This is actually the correct behavior - if the button is denied focus then the click event will not fire (but you can still use mousedown or mouseup).

Then the button action in 2.5.1 was incorrect? Or was this a refinment?

Yes, I would say that was a bug in 2.5.1 and it is now corrected in 2.5.2. In general if the control is unable to receive focus it should not do anything (all operations are blocked).

The onmouseevent works. Should I remove the onClick event to pervent a possible conflict?
