If you call context menu in tracker you will see "Open Parent" menu item wich should be assigned accelerant key - (ALT/CTRL + arrow up). Instead you'll see square like this '[]' without ALT or CTRL image.

Looks like DrawChar(B_DOWN_ARROW) (and drawing a string with DrawString() which contains that charachter) doesn't work (in BeOS R5 as in haiku).

I added a TODO item in MenuItem.cpp. If someone wants to tackle it...

Fixed in BMenuItem, but still doesn't work. Maybe we need a dedicated font for this, even though it looks like our fonts have this character.

comment:6 Changed 13 years ago by axeld

Ok, our standard fonts doesn't seem to have the arrow symbols :/

comment:7 Changed 13 years ago by diver

In R5, if Tahoma font is used, it draws arrow symbol, but not in Haiku.

Sure, R5 obviously uses a special symbol font for them.

This has been working for some time. Although if the selected font is missing this glyphs, they won't show up. IOW: We still need a fallback in BMenuItem :) Let's close this, anyway.
