ComboBoxCellEditor keyboard navigation [message #1058839] Wed, 15 May 2013 11:28 Go to next message

The ComboBoxCellEditor in NatTable 1.0.0 seems to close the drop down box immediately whenever the user hits the UP or DOWN arrow key once. This prevents the user from cycling through all the choices in the drop down box via the keyboard only. In other words if the user wants to select a different choice he's almost required to use the mouse.

Is there a way the ComboBoxCellEditor allows the user to make a selection strictly with the keyboard using the up/down arrows and possibly the space bar/enter keys ?

Thanks
Steve

Hi,

thanks for reporting this. This is indeed a bug regarding multiple selections and checkbox support in ComboBoxCellEditor. Of course key navigation should be supported as expected.

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=408130

I fixed this bug immediately as we are close before release. There should be soon a new SNAPSHOT be available containing the fix. It would be great if you could update and test if everything works correctly now.

Thanks,
Dirk
