Keyboard functions to change windows

Post by pwdiener »

I've been looking at the keyboard functions to manipulate the current window. In the help file, I see WindowNext and WindowPrevious. In the keyboard function list, I see WindowNextFocus and WindowPreviousFocus (not in the help file). I can see the differences in behavior between the 2 - WindowNext/WindowPrevious wrap around and keep going while WindowNextFocus/WindowPreviousFocus do not wrap. I can't quite figure out the sequence for WindowNextFocus though.

I also see the undocumened ActivateNext/ActivatePrevious functions, but they don't appear to do anything perceptible. Are they intended to serve some function or are they obsolete?

Neither can I :(

The truth is I think the ordering of the Windows is little broken.

In earlier times the ordering of the window was much simpler.

But over the years I got so many e-mail saying why doesn't the windowing work like Visual Studio :?:

So I finally got sick and tired of this and tried to make it like Visual Studio.

I the process I think the ordering is now a bit chaotic, but I am a little scared to try and fix it :(

These functions move the focus between the document, navigator and search combo box found in the toolbar.

To see this bind ActivateNext to any key and watch the focus move.

Having said that it looks like ActivatePrevious has a bug :(
