Changes to support inverse autofill (9.91 KB, patch)

Description Alex Barnes 2001-10-27 18:52:59 UTC

1. Put 10 in C7
2. Put 15 in C8
3. Highlight C7 and C8
4. Move mouse to bottom-right of C8 to get autofill mouse cursor
5. Move mouse to C6


Autofill does not highlight C6

The same thing happens if you try to fill to the left.

Ok, so maybe I use auto-fill in a little bit of a weird way, but I wonder
if this is a serious problem with a right to left language such as Hebrew
or Arabic where left-filling would be more common?

P.S. Keep up the good work; I'm very impressed with 0.71 -- huge
improvement over 0.67.

Filling up or left would potentially decrease a series.  We may support it one
day, but it is not high on our list of priorities.
Comment 2 Alex Barnes 2001-10-29 02:41:28 UTC
If I provide a patch to do this, will you accept it?
Comment 3 Jody Goldberg 2001-10-29 03:03:50 UTC
Patches are always welcome.  I'll warn you that it is not trivial.
Please have a look at XL's behavior before attempting this.

Comment 4 Alex Barnes 2001-11-01 01:45:06 UTC
Well, if it's not trivial, then it's fun :)

As noted in Bug 63510, Edit, Fill, Autofill doesn't actually do
anything; I'll take care of that here too (maybe as a separate patch).

Comment 8 Alex Barnes 2001-11-03 21:47:20 UTC
OK, attachment 5962 [details] [review] is ready for QA.  I used a gboolean to indicate
whether inverse autofill was happening.  As you can see in the patch,
I'd like to replace it with an enumeration:

Feel free to commit as is, or to re-assign to me and I'll do the enum
thing (in sheet-autofill.h I suppose).

Oops, I just noticed that I forgot to put src/ in front of most of the
filenames in the Changelog.  Sorry.
Comment 9 Jody Goldberg 2001-11-17 19:02:43 UTC
Code looked pretty reasonable as has been applied.  The enum would be a nice
touch.  I tweaked the visiblity handling during an autoscroll but the majority
