If you say about Tracker menu navigation; it is generic BPopUpMenu behavior, not special Tracker behavior. This behavior allow to invoke menu item by keyboard. Clicking on item or call item by keyboard have same behavior.

What do you mean by "jump to it"? Open executable location?

He means how you can type the first few letters of a filename in a Tracker window to highlight that file. Note that there are no menu objects involved in TeamMonitor anyways.

If so I think it should be generic BListView behavior.

1) Tracker doesn't use BListView.

2) Nothing about BListView/BListItem requires the list items to contain text.

I just fixed the two other Team Monitor bugs you logged diver but I don't think this one is very useful. Using the Team Monitor should be a fairly rare event, and unlike Linux the list of processes in Haiku is generally quite small. So adding this isn't really worth the trouble in my opinion.

Also the list isn't sorted alphabetically, which makes the jumping less useful. I think the sorting by start time is more useful, as it helps identifying processes (when you have several "bash" in the list, at least you can see when they were launched)

I somehow missed comment:5 and I agree that it's worth the trouble.
