Class: Bug
Severity: Non-critical
Number: 3889
Release: 5.4.0907

Status: Open
Environment: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1
Synopsis: Yes/No/Cancel dialog boxes do not respond to the Y and N keys

When a Yes/No/Cancel dialog is displayed, the Y and N keys do not behave in the standard way expected of a Windows program.

The keys do nothing. The Y key should click the Yes button and the N key should click the No button.

This non-standard behaviour is annoying. After hitting the key, and finding it does nothing, I have to Tab to the button I want and then hit Enter, or else I have to use the mouse.
To Reproduce
1. Make a change to a class.
2. Click on another class in the Cluster tool.
3. A dialog appears, asking for confirmation to save the modified class.
4. Type Y, which in any self-respecting Windows program will click the Yes button. Type N, which should click the No button. In EiffelStudio, they do nothing.
