#13643 assigned bug

BRefFilter un-filters ESCAPE key

Reported by: owenca Owned by: waddlesplash
Priority: normal Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: Kits/Interface Kit Version: R1/Development
Keywords: BFilePanel, BRefFilter Cc: humdinger
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: All

Description

The ESCAPE key is supposed to close a BFilePanel window, but if the file panel is constructed with a BRefFilter argument like in Expander and Filer, the ESCAPE key will clear the file/folder list instead.

Related to #13151 ?

I think so.

A guess about this: the escape key is used by Tracker to clear its own filter if you have type-ahead filtering enabled. Maybe that filter interferes with the BFilePanel one somehow? What if you disable type-ahead filtering?

Disabling type-ahead filtering doesn't make a difference.

Replying to pulkomandy:

You are right about the Esc key being used by Tracker. I submitted a patch for #13151. It should fix this ticket, too.
