PR# 3846 Suggestion - Double-click or <Enter> in Type Selector

Problem Report Summary
Submitter: peter_gummer
Category: EiffelBuild
Priority: Medium
Date: 2004/07/15
Class: Feature Request
Severity: Non-critical
Number: 3846
Release: 5.4.0907
Confidential: No
Status: Open
Environment: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1
Synopsis: Suggestion - Double-click or <Enter> in Type Selector

In the Object Editor, it would be nice if double-clicking or keying <Enter> on a type would add an object of that type to the Layout Constructor.

The object would be dropped under the object currently selected in the Layout Constructor, subject to exactly the same rules that currently apply to pick and drop.

Holding down the Shift key whilst double-clicking or keying <Enter> would have exactly the same effect as it now has during drop.

This would often be easier than have to pick and drop an object. It would also help old Delphi and Visual Studio programmers to learn EiffelBuild. :-)

 A correction to the description that I wrote in my report.
 At the start of the description, "In the Object Editor" should say "In the 
 Type Selector".
