I have an RCP application. In one of my views I had a Text control with a
Button next to it and a Table under them. I set the button up as the
default button for the view's top composite' shell - using code like this:
myTopComposite.getShell ().setDefaultButton (myRetrieveButton);

This worked as I expected. After typing in the text box pressing the
<enter> key caused the button's selection listener to recieve the
widgetSelected event.

Then I changed to a CCombo instead of the Text control. The default
button is still being set the same way but now after typeing (or selecting
a prepopulated selectin) pressing the <enter> key has no effect. If I use
the mouse or <tab> key to put the focus on the table and pres the <enter>
key things behave as I expected.

There seems to be something about the CCombo that is preventing the
default button from getting the widgetSelected event when I press <enter>.

Any advice or suggestions would be appricated.

Thanks,

Ian

I just tried Combo (instead of CCombo) and that worked fine. Since, in
this case, I do not need the extra features of CCombo I can use Combo. I
would still like to know how to get this to work for CCombo boxes too.

Thanks,

Ian
