Change key behavior in "Find symbol" tool window
« on: November 18, 2014, 09:07:04 am »
Hi,
I have a keyboard shortcut which pops-up the "Find symbol" tool window.
After pressing this shortcut, the focus is in the "Search for" field in this window.
Then I type in the symbol and results are displayed.
At this point, I would like to use Up and Down keys in order to select the desired symbol.
Currently, those keys operate on the "Search for" field (The Down key reloads previous queries).
Is this possible via "Key bindings" or Slick-C macro?
Thanks,
Noam

SlickEdit 2014 V19 does this- I think it was a change from V18.  What version are you using?

I'm using v18.
So you're saying it's impossible in v18?

If think after hitting TAB (moving the focus to the result list) you can navigate within the list e.g. with cursor up/dn.

Indeed, TAB can be used to move the focus but this is exactly the stage I want to eliminate.
I used to work with VS and VAssistX. In VassitX tool windows there is no need to press TAB.
