Smartfield - Key Shortcut for Browse New [message #902068] Wed, 15 August 2012 17:47 Go to next message

I am using getConfiguredBrowseNewText() and execBrowseNew(String searchText) on a Smartfield. This displays the "New" link as desired:

index.php/fa/11198/0/

How do I create a key shortcut for this link? Simply adding a key stroke to the smartfield doesn't seem to work when the proposal form is open.

By overriding

protected ISmartFieldProposalForm createProposalForm() throws ProcessingException;


and patching the New Button to IButton.DISPLAY_STYLE_DEFAULT

import org.eclipse.scout.commons.exception.ProcessingException;
import org.eclipse.scout.rt.client.ui.form.fields.button.IButton;
import org.eclipse.scout.rt.client.ui.form.fields.smartfield.ISmartField;
import org.eclipse.scout.rt.client.ui.form.fields.smartfield.SmartTableForm;

public class KeyStrokeSmartTableForm extends SmartTableForm {

  public KeyStrokeSmartTableForm(ISmartField<?> smartField) throws ProcessingException {
    super(smartField);
  }

  @Override
  protected void execInitForm() throws ProcessingException {
    super.execInitForm();
    getNewButton().setDisplayStyleInternal(IButton.DISPLAY_STYLE_DEFAULT);
  }

}


it is at least possible to use button mnemonics to execute the button using the keyboard.

However, it would be great to use f-keys as well without replacing the whole SmartTableForm.

Hi Adrian

Defining a key stroke for the browse new link does not seems to be supported yet. I tried it with adding a class of AbstractKeyStroke to the SmartTableForm, but with no success either.
The approach we usually use is to define a new menu on the smartfield (which supports key strokes).

      @Order(10.0)
      public class SectorField extends AbstractSmartField<Long> {

        @Override
        protected String getConfiguredLabel() {
          return TEXTS.get("Sector");
        }

        @Override
        protected Class<? extends LookupCall> getConfiguredLookupCall() {
          return CompanySectorLookupCall.class;
        }

        @Order(10.0)
        public class NewSectorMenu extends AbstractMenu {

          @Override
          protected String getConfiguredText() {
            return TEXTS.get("NewSector_");
          }

          @Override
          protected boolean getConfiguredEmptySpaceAction() {
            return true;
          }

          @Override
          protected void execAction() throws ProcessingException {
            newAction();
          }

          @Override
          protected String getConfiguredKeyStroke() {
            return "F3";
          }
        }

        private void newAction() {
          // add desired action here         
        }

        public class F3KeyStroke extends AbstractKeyStroke {

          @Override
          protected String getConfiguredKeyStroke() {
            return "F3";
          }

          @Override
          protected void execAction() throws ProcessingException {
            newAction();
          }
        }
      }

Thanks for your suggestion, Stephan.

But the key stroke action of the menu is not executed when the proposal form is open.
What I want, is a user-friendly way to add new entries to a smartfield:
- user types a 'ABC'
- smartfield proposal form opens, 'ABC' is not found
- when the value is not available, the user should be able to press a key shortcut and open a form to create the new entry with 'ABC' prefilled

Hi Adrian

This does not seem to be possible right now. What you need is something like a getConfiguredBrowseNewKeyStroke method on AbstractSmartField, am I right? Can you create a bugzilla ticket for this.

Thanks!

Stephan
