Description ccv 2003-02-06 13:19:54 UTC
1. It is impossible to move to any pane with the
Ctrl-PgDn key in the "Properties of ..." window if
focus is on any sheetbutton, not on tab's title.
It is very inconvenient for a user.

According to Java L&F the following keybord
operations should work for tabbed panes:
Ctrl-down (up) arrow
Ctrl-PgDn (PgUp)

2. It would be better to have mnemonics for a
tab's title and a user can navigate from tab to
tab using keyboard operations.

Property sheet is being rewritten as a JTable (there is a prototype
in progress).  One of the main reasons is problems with keyboard
navigability.  This issue will be resolved as part of the rewrite.
Comment 2 _ tboudreau 2003-07-16 19:44:34 UTC
Fixed - new property sheet committed.  Tabs eliminated by
default;  once Form editor implements tabs, can be tested
there, but no reason it shouldn't work - we're using standard
JDK components now, not SheetButton.
