#728 closed bug (fixed)

BListView does not allow selection of a list item if no item was selected previously

Due to not having a PS/2 mouse or a USB mouse that works via emulation, I found myself unable to do a lot once I booted up Haiku. Thus, I saluted it and brought up Team Monitor, to see what I could kill. As in BeOS 5.03, no item is selected by default in the BListView. I could keyboard navigate to the BListView, but pressing the arrow keys did not select any item in the list at all. Since I don't have a mouse that works, I couldn't select via the mouse at all, and requiring that is not BeOS 5.03 compatible behavior.

Comparing notes with BeOS 5.03, the correct behavior if an item is not already selected in a BListView is to select the top list item, regardless of whether the up or down arrow key is pressed.

Fixed in hrev18480. BTW, you could also have pressed home/end keys to select an entry - that would have worked before as well :-)
