0.84: Tabbing impossible in dialogs with multi-line fields

Post by helmut » Sun Mar 26, 2017 12:51 am

XnView: MP 0.84 - 64 bit
OS: Windows 10 - 64bit

In all(?) multiline textfields the user cannot navigate to the next field by pressing "Tab" key. Neither Tab key works, nor Strg+Tab.

Effect: User cannot fill out dialogs using keyboard, only.

To reproduce:
1. In XnView browser select one or multiple images.
2. Select Create » Contact sheet...
3. In "Create contact sheet" dialog press Tab key till focus is in field "Information".
4. Press Tab key one more time
Actual behaviour (bug): A tab character is inserted into the Information field. :bug:

Expected behaviour: Tab key should tab to the next field. Strg+Tab should insert a tab character into the Information field. (On Windows Strg+Tab is de-facto standard keyboard assignment for inserting tab character).

Note: The above example is for the dialog "Create contact sheet" but it applies for other dialogs like "Edit IPTC", too.

O.k., thank you, I can also reproduce the problem. Issue 1267 is fixed in next version.

This bug started in 0.85 because in 0.84 there was no Contact sheet implemented yet...

Tested with 0.87 beta 3, fixed.

Wile tabbing through the Create contact sheet window, one can now get pass the box below Show information with tab. No tab is enetered in the information box.
