-> Would it be possible to add a modified TAB completion
-> feature? This could be done in two ways:
It's time to move this discussion off gtk-devel. Please subscribe
to the list mentioned in the last message of this thread.
I will be subscribing on Monday.
-> 1) While typing, the file list reflects only the matched
-> files. So after typing the letters "ran" you would only see files with
-> names like "random_notes.txt", "ranFromMyParents.doc", "ransom.c",
-> etc. This would update as you type.
This would cause a great deal of flashing in the list, confusing
users. Bad Idea.
-> 2) Something more like IE's URL entry widget. As you type, it
-> adjusts a drop down list in a similar way, and "suggests" possibilities
-> which you press a key to accept. (say... TAB?)
I like this idea. We need to think these things through. I
already see that I need to defend a "New Directory" and "Rename File"
button in the widget. I suggest all interested parties read this month's
Gnome-UI archive, it has some good threads on this.
Remember, don't reply to this list. See you guys Monday.
