Description

19 years ago
Multiple selection in a tree widget on the Mac needs to support the Shift and
Command keys.  Currently it supports the Control key instead of Command.  This is
not the correct behavior for the Mac, it also conflicts with the Mac standard
meaning for Control-Click which is Right Mouse Button.

Dave, now that the command key is acting properly on the Mac, the control and
shift keys are not behaving.

Shift-click should select a range but it has no affect; this should be fixed.

Control-click should behave like the right-mouse-button but currently is behaves
like a click; I am not sure if you need to fix it here to get this behavior but I
am pointing it out just in case.

I am re-opening the bug.

I already have a bug about SHIFT+CLICK.  As for CONTROL+CLICK, that should be
handled by the context menu code, so it isn't actually a bug in the tree widget.
If you want to open a context menu bug that CONTROL+CLICK isn't treated like a
context click, then do that.  But this actual bug (namely that COMMAND+CLICK
wasn't working) has been fixed.

Umm...I have no idea how to verify this bug, and would greatly appreciate a
pointer to the relevant source material.

(The most recent Macintosh Human Interface Guidelines (1992) do not include a
tree widget behavioral specification.)

On 8/23/99 I verified that the command key was working.  Hyatt says that there is
another bug that covers SHIFT-CLICK and should be one for CONTROL-CLICK.  If both
of these bugs exist then this bug can be closed.

In that case, rubber-stamping as fixed.

* control-click isn't yet implemented (contextual menus)
* hyatt says a shift-click bug exists

thanks!
