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.
Adding Hyatt on cc list in case he knows of a better person to direct this bug towards.

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.)
QA Assigning to originator for verification; no response received to 8.31.99 query requesting the specifications required to verify this bug. Thanks!
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!
