]- i mean the ability for me to code something like this w/o using C/C++ of cource, but perl &/or bash :

1. User click say F2
2. choose option inserted there by me.(up to here everything is ok)
3. dialog box pop-up (created by my program) wich ask for a string/text
4. I enter say "SELECT * FROM table1" 
5. When I hit ENTER, my script get's the input makes query to the database and then prepares output as 
required by MC (like the other vfs scripts... tgz,rpm-browsers)
6. The results is displayed say on the right pane

What I described here is simple Database browsing.. directly into MC

]- sorry for not clarifing, this is Burland Interbase database (but the open sourced version).

]- !!!! 
As I stated Alt+Tab is used by GNOME, so it can't be used by MC when I'm runing it in console under GNOME.
If I'm under "pure" console then there is no problem..

|Shift-middle-click should work on therminals that support it.  If it
|doesn't, report it as a bug, i.e. with version number, OS version, output
|of "mc -V", terminal name and whatever else you think is relevant.

]- aha my mistake... it works , sorry....

|> - On the most dialog-boxes there is  [^], how can I access it with the keyboard ?!
|Alt-h or Escape h.
]- thanx
