mouseMove not being called (before clicking) in Plugins in Juce Host


#1

mouseMove only will be called after the mouse has once clicked on the GUI (even when the plugin-window was in the forground)

Tested on Mac with latest tip, in JUCE Plugin Host and my own juce based host as AU and VST2 (Component is child of other Components)

In Standalone applications it seems to work! (Maybe a juce plugin hosting problem only)

That's just how OSX works - no mouse-move events get sent until a window has focus.

In a stand-alone app I use some tricks to do it differently, and send events to all Components, but that's not possible for windows that are hosted.
