QSL Manager: Enter Key Action

Post by AE0S » 30 Jun 2020, 01:47

Usability request:

Pressing the ENTER/Return key in the callsign field of the QSL Manager should cause the same action as clicking the green search button.

Current behavior: Nothing happens when pressing enter.

If this is not a beginner mistake (setting?) then I have also the same pain. It would be much more convenient just to hit Enter instead of grabbing mouse and clicking on Search.

In my case there is a reaction on Enter: Windows plays its "attention" sound. But nothing else happen.

Cheers,

Lele has changed this in the past when Users asking about this changes.. The reason was a that
there was a lot of traffic and processor usuage work with automatted refrehses. Therfore Lele
has changed to the "Search" Button. This is much better for the processor usuage.

I don't get that this requires automatic refreshes. The program wouldn't refresh anything until the enter key is pressed in the call sign field. Nothing automatic here, nothing that should cause performance issues.

This bugs me so much that I'd learn whatever programming language Log4OM is written in just to add an event handler for the enter key and rebuild the program for my personal usage. Unfortunately the source isn't available so that's not possible. :(

Claus,

New release of V2 will have the "enter" key enabled. I tested on Alpha this morning and it works FB.

V 2.9.0.0 should be available later today.
