Description helgekraak 2007-12-19 13:54:56 UTC
In a listbox which is being used in a dialog you can select entries by clicking
on them. To select more than one entry you can use the CTRL/STRG key or the
SHIFT key. Deselection of single entries is done as well by using these keys.
This behaviour is common with other applications offering listboxes. But in my
view there is one really important feature missing to offer easy usable end user
applications: The opportunity to select and deselect entries without using the
CTRL/STRG/SHIFT keys. This would help a lot users who normally don't know about
this functionality.
In my current project this missing feature leads to the necessity of inserting a
"delete selection" button into the dialog, because once the user selected an
entry he can't remove this selection anymore by just clicking on it. If the user
decides to not select anything in the current listbox he has to know that this
can only be done by using the CTRL/STRG key.

Please change this behaviour either in general or please offer at least an
option in the listbox preferences to activate this behaviour.

I haven't tested this with listboxes in forms. Maybe this is also an issue for
these objects.
