  • In-game chat commands cause the chat box to lose focus

    If you attempt to use a chat command in-game (/clear, /roll, /whisper, etc.) it will cause the chat window to lose focus as soon as you start typing it, making it nearly impossible to write any chat commands unless you continually press enter to re-open the chat window after every character.

    Repro Steps:
    1. Enter a match.
    2. Press Enter to open the chat window.
    3. Type a '/' into the chat window.

    An informational window pops up above the chat bar showing you the available chat commands, but at the same time the chat bar vanishes as if it is no longer in focus. Any subsequent keys pressed are treated as hotkey presses instead of chat characters. Pressing Enter brings focus back to the chat box but typing another character causes it to lose focus again.

    Expected Result:
    You should be able to continue typing a slash command into the chat box without it losing focus.
