Description Jon Kåre Hellan 2002-05-07 20:16:32 UTC
In the search center (normal tab), range selection only works when keyboard
focus in the range entry.

It is particularly confusing that range selection doesn't get 
activated when you press the "Range" radio button.

(I solved this in the zoom dialog by moving focus to the "custom" entry
when the corresponding radio button was selected. But I wonder if the HIG
people consider that PC.)

In this particular case, it shouldn't matter where focus is in the dialog,
since there is only one field which accepts range selection.

I take i tyou would like at least the behaviour frm the analysis
tools: clicking the range radio button focusses the range entry field
and clicking on the range entry field selects the button? 
Comment 2 Andreas J. Guelzow 2002-05-08 14:18:15 UTC
Clicking on the radio button now focusses the entry field.

I have tried the unfocused range selection idea and am not sure
whether I like it since we can add up with keyboard focus in the
search text entry and range selection in the range entry... Well, I
implemented it anyways but to enable it the appropriate pref must be
set to TRUE on the next to last sheet of the pref dialog. If we decide
we don't like it we can remove it, if we like it we can have the pref
default to TRUE or set it permanently.
