E-508: Users Able to Tab Out of Focus When a Modal Window Opened in a Navigation Collection (Doc ID 2693975.1)

Last updated on JULY 24, 2020

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.58 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The keyboard focus is moving to the actionable items in the background (grayed-out section of the page behind the modal window). This creates several problems, including hidden keyboard focus (when behind the dialog module) and color contrast failures (for items in focus and grayed-out), and makes it more difficult to navigate overall for keyboard-only users.

An example of this behavior can be seen when adding Process Monitor to a Navigation Collection.

Steps to replicate:
1. Create a Navigation Collection with Process Monitor.
2. Run any Process.
3. Using only the keyboard, tab to the details link to open the Process Detail modal window.
4. Tab until you are able to tab outside of the Process Detail Modal Window.
5. The user is able to select the home, search, notification, action list, and navbar buttons even though they are outside of the modal window.
