Issue/Introduction

When editing an active schedule in Internet Explorer, if you use the 'enter' key to perform the edit, the schedule may go into an uneditable status and all changes will need to be discarded and the schedule closed before your edits can be accepted.

To replicate:
1.) Open the monitor of an active Schedule. 
2.) Click Modify 
3.) In the last displayed line, change the time and hit enter. 
4.) A new line is inserted with time 00:00: 
5.)Click save. An error appears with a stacktrace): 
An unexpected error occurred. Further details are available in the logfiles. 

Now you cannot edit the schedule anymore. You must close the monitor with _Discard & Close_ and open it again. 

Cause

The problem was caused by the non-standard way in which IE handles blur events: Enter was handled first, before the model disabled the table. Now, the AWI explicitly processes Enter after the model changes.

Environment

Release:
Component: AAUTWI

Resolution

The issue was found and fixed with:
Automic.Web.Interface 12.1.5 in UI released 05-20-2019
Automic.Web.Interface 12.2.3 in UI pending release.

Hotfix-Description: Changing a task in an active Schedule and pressing Enter throws an error in IE

A problem has been fixed that caused an error when modifying a task in a Schedule object and pressing Enter instead of Save. It was not possible to edit the Schedule anymore. The problem was caused by the non-standard way in which IE handles blur events: Enter was handled first, before the model disabled the table. Now, the AWI explicitly processes Enter after the model changes.
