On 3rd edit of cell, resource file is opened

there is a quite annoying bug in the plugin for VisualStudio.

When I edit the text in the ResX Resource Manager window, I double click on a cell and edit the text, then double click on another cell and edit the text, then double click on a third cell.

Each time when I double click on the third cell, the resource file is opened in the VisuaStudio with the visual studio editor.

This is actually incredibly annoying when editing. It would be great if you could fix it. Let me know if you need more info.

Problem is on the latest version

I can't reproduce this - and I don't have any clue what could cause such a behavior. Maybe you could investigate some more.

Is this three clicks in the same row, or column, or does this matter at all?
What SCM are you using? Is the file already checked out when you start editing?
What VS Version?
What code generator?

scm in p4v and the file is already checked out. Visual Studio 12.0.31101.00 Update 4. I have 4 languages.

It doesn't matter which cells I click. It's really simple to reproduce (on my computer anyways), and it happens every time.

1) Open ResX manager in VS. Placed in the central panel

2) Double click on a cell. The text becomes editable. Add a character

3) Double click a different cell. Add a character

4) Double click a third cell -> The default language resx file is opened in a separate tab

Very strange, this seems to be reproducible only on your installation.
  • can you try temporarily disabling the p4v plugin?
  • maybe you have another extension installed that causes this?

I've tried disabling all plugins, including p4v, VisualAssist, etc. The problem persists.

Sorry, then I'm out of ideas. All the Mouse clicks are handled by the data grid, I don't do anything special.

However there are two workarounds:
Use Ctrl+Enter instead of Mouse DblClick to enter edit mode.
If you write text into an empty cell: Just use a single click and start typing.
