Re: [yast-devel] Cant capture key events using libyui in ncurses mode

I am developing a tool in ncurses mode and in c++ using yast2-libyui on SLES

I want to do following in my app:

1. If user presses enter or return key when entering text in Input Field, I
want to trigger some action in app.
The option `notify has to be set for the InputField to get events if the user presses a key. At the moment a ValueChanged event is sent for any user input. From source code I can see that for the return key an Activated event is assigned but is overwritten later with ValueChanged.
I have attached the patch for to avoid this. I will provide yast2-ncurses containing the patch for SLES11-SP2.

2. I want to make navigation between widget items using arrow keys instead of
tab or shift+tab keys. My dialog contains combo box, input field, buttons,
selection box and table.

I tried setSendKeyEvents( bool doSend ). but no luck. only selection box widget
sending event for left, right arrow key presses.
Yes, sendKeyEvents are only available for the selection box widget. They were implemented for easier use of the text mode control center and the file selection widgets (switching between 2 selection boxes).
