Grids do not properly allow users to set a selection via keyboard

Description (last modified by jeroens) (diff)

Commonly, the keyboard interface to make a selection in a Grid in Windows is as follows:

  • Move the focus to different cells with the arrow keys
  • Select cells by press and holding the [Shift] key. The cell that the [Shift] key was first pressed becomes the first anchor point of the new selection; the current position of the focus becomes the second anchor point of the new selection. Whenever the cell focus moves, the rectangular range from first to second anchor is selected
  • Behaviour of the [Ctrl] key is not standardized among applications

In EwE6, navigating a grid with the keyboard and [Shift] and/or [Ctrl] only selects the new focus cell, not the range between cells

Let's not fix this for now

Known, confirmed and not a big deal. If any deal at all. Let's keep this on record but I presume we'll not solve this unless we decide to upgrade to a newer version of SourceGrid?

  • Milestone changed from Ecopath 6 to Ecopath 6 TODO

Can only fix this with new version of SourceGrid?. We need budget for this. For now there is no good solution
