#549 closed patch (invalid)

make 3/9 act as pageup/down in three places that need it

Reported by: gnassas@… Owned by: cpinkham

There are probably more than three places that could use this but I added it to three dialogs that frequently vex me: 1) the category search in schedule recordings; 2) the list of videos in mythvideo setup 3) the list of thumbnails in mythvideo setup.

Since 1) is an update to MythListBox? there are other dialogs which are affected but I don't believe any of them carry as long a list as category search.

What's wrong with mapping PageUp/PageDown? on your remote? I think you could also do this in mythcontrols by binding your '3' and '9' keys to PageUp/PageDown? for the 'qt' context since that context applies to these widgets.

I've never seen a remote with PageUp/Down?. Certainly none of mine do and the existing buttons are already mapped.

you could also do this in mythcontrols

If it's true then the ticket might be inverted to remove the 3/9 mapping from the places that already do it. I'll have to poke around.

I think the issue is that '3' is mapped to PAGEUP in the "TV Playback" context, but the actual PgUp? key is mapped to PAGEUP Globally. Even if PageUp/PageDown? are not on a remote, a lot of people map something to PageUp/PageDown? because these keys are used in quite a few places. I map the keys on each side of my "0" key so one side is PgUp? and the other PgDown?. I'll have another look at this as well.

This ticket has been moribund for a while but a few weeks ago I did follow up on this suggestion:

without success. The idea was to add a 3/9 mapping to the Qt context to achieve the same behaviour. I tried that with two sql inserts but couldn't get 3/9 to act as pageup/down.

Is it possible that the global context comes before the Qt one? If so then this change needs to be done through code. I'm out of the country for a week and can't test that until next week.

Milestone: 0.190.20

I really think we should be going the opposite direction with this patch, not adding more places where 3/9 act as pageup/down. If people want 3/9 to act as page up/down on a screen, then they should setup they keybindings appropriately. If keybindings don't exist in that area then maybe they should. I'm going to move this to a 0.20 milestone since as George stated it may require code changes and we're frozen for 0.19.

Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed

Revisted this and noticed that I had tested using "Qt" as a context which is wrong. The correct name is "qt". If you add 3 and 9 there you get the desired behaviour.

So, this ticket is withdrawn.
