Description Shoshannah Forbes 2001-09-04 05:54:47 PDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.3+) Gecko/20010831
BuildID:    2001083103

in windows systems, left ctrl+shift changes alignment/directionality to LTR and
right ctrl+shift changes alignment/directionality to RTL. This is a standard
feature, that works in almost all windows applications.
However, it does not work in textarea under Mozilla

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load any form with textarea into Mozilla (you can use the attached one)
2. Use Left ctrl + shift or right ctrl + shift to change the
alignment/directionality


Actual Results:  Nothing happends

Expected Results:  The alignment/directionality should change

Lots of Isralie web sites depend on this feature in there web forms. It is very
common to see directions telling the user to use this method if they wish to
write in the other langues (Hebrew or English).
With this feature missing, it is a real pain to right English in RTL forms, and
Hebrew in LTR forms.

BTW, this is not limited to textareas- almost no dialog boxes in Mozilla respond
to this, which makes creating Hebrew folder names for bookamrs, editing Hebrew
bookmark names etc. a real pain.

Comment 2 Shoshannah Forbes 2001-09-17 06:03:49 PDT
I discovered the same problem with Mozilla mail- you can't set plain text mail
to right-to-left, which makes it a real pain to read/write Hebrew email.
Should I open a separete bug for it?
Comment 3 Simon Montagu :smontagu 2001-09-20 01:45:50 PDT
Yes, please do open a separate RFE bug for directionality in mail. It was
discussed as a side issue in bug 95371, and is on my personal TODO list, but it
deserves its own bug.

Comment 7 Konstantin Vainer 2002-11-22 01:53:22 PST
The bugreport was initially submitted for a windows system....
But i would rather like this feature be introduced in mozilla-linux, too.
The textareas as well as regular <input type="text" ..> are hardly usable on all
systems when dir="rtl" secified for them in the document.
Comment 8 Prognathous 2003-01-10 13:40:28 PST
Please change the title of this bug to "Can't change alignment/directionality in
a textarea" and mark this as a problem for all operating systems and all platforms.

The Ctrl+Shift shortcut is only valid for Windows, but the problem affects
everyone - including users of operating systems without native Hebrew support
(such as BeOS and most unices).

When Bug 85420 ("Need Bidi UI") is solved we'll have a reasonable solution, but
a keyboard shortcut will definitely be a welcomed addition to Mozilla users on
platforms other than Windows.

Prog.
Comment 9 Tomer Cohen :tomer 2003-06-11 12:58:08 PDT
Jesse Ruderman from squarefree.com made for us a quick direction switcher for
textareas, which has a bookmarklet installation. 

javascript:(function(){var
D=document,B=D.body,sx=B.scrollLeft,sy=B.scrollTop,k,i,f,j,x,r,p,a;for(i=0;f=D.forms[i];++i)for(j=0;x=f[j];++j)x.onblur=function(){for(p=k=this;p&&!p.dir;p=p.parentNode);r=p?(p.dir=="rtl"):0;k.dir=(r?"ltr":"rtl");};a=D.createElement("a");a.href="#";B.appendChild(a);a.focus();setTimeout(function(){for(i=0;f=D.forms[i];++i)for(j=0;x=f[j];++j)x.onblur=null;if(k)k.focus();else
alert("No focused
textbox!");B.removeChild(a);B.scrollLeft=sx;B.scrollTop=sy;},0)})() 


Still, we have another two workarounds, which have been discussed here and at
mozilla.org.il (hebrew):
A. Ilya Konstantinov's -
http://toast.unwind.co.il/hacks/mozBidiBindings-0.3.tar.gz - No automatic
installation, XBL based.
B. Mooffie's  - http://archive.takilla.com/SiteBuilders/msg01342.html (Hebrew,
but still readable) - One line addition to platformHTMLBindings.xml, shorter, no
automatic installation.

Now if we will get the ability to bind ctrl-shift to one of those...

This doesn't seem to work with Camino :-(
Comment 11 Jesse Ruderman 2003-06-11 14:39:42 PDT
Btw, you have to put that bookmarklet on your bookmarks toolbar to use it; you
can't use it directly from the address bar.  That's because it depends on a
textbox or textarea being focused.

If Camino makes the bookmarks toolbar take focus when you click a bookmarklet,
you can use a bookmarklet that does one of the following instead:
- changes direction of all textareas.
- adds the ctrl+shift shortcut for the current page.
- changes the cursor and waits for you to click the textarea you want to change.
Comment 12 Shoshannah Forbes 2003-06-11 15:31:18 PDT
Hmm.. restarted the browser and now it seems to work. Perhaps it was a fluke.

>adds the ctrl+shift shortcut for the current page

As far as I know, that shortcut is windows only. Camino runs on mac OS. Am I
mistaken here?

Comment 17 Mano (::mano, needinfo? for any questions; not reading general bugmail) 2004-08-16 16:21:58 PDT
"Switch Text Direction" menu item (see bug 85420) has been checked in for
Firefox, and will be checked in soon for Seamonkey. The current keyboard
shortcut is Accel+Shift+Y. We know it is bad, but because of bug 166240 we can't
implement ctrl+right/left shift at the moment.

As crtl+shift is windows-only standard, I suggest ctrl (not accel)+right/left
arrows on other platforms.

(as far as I know, only on windows ctrl+arrows select a word in textareas,
correct me if i'm wrong).
Comment 18 Steffen Wilberg 2004-08-18 15:30:02 PDT
Ctrl+Left/Right arrow jumps to the previous/next word in a textarea on
Linux/GTK2 as well. Add Shift to extend a selection.

Chromium is gaining users and have recently got ctrl-shift change direction support in its nightlies. Please implement this in Gecko, so we will be able to get rid of the ctrl-shift-x hotkey and the 'switch direction' context menu item.

Comment 24 Mark Goodhand 2010-07-01 08:05:14 PDT
Several times recently (using FF 3.6.6 on OSX 10.6.4) I've enabled RTL by mistake, probably because the current shortcut is so close to Cut (Cmd-X).

The lack of context menu makes the mistake difficult to rectify.  In the end, I resorted to google, and found this page:

http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Text+entered+into+Firefox+is+backwards

The proposed Ctrl-left/right sequence still seems prone to accidents (e.g. if using Alt-left/right to cursor across words).  It makes me wonder: should this feature really be enabled for all locales by default?  I don't know what percentage of Firefox users want this feature, but I expect they are small minority, and highly localised.

I think it would make sense to have a preference for "Fast RTL toggle", which would be disabled by default for most locales.

Hello,

Please find in attachment a patch for fixing the problem on Windows/Linux
In this pacth the direction of the text is changed upon Ctrl+Shift key pressing
Please observe that no distinction is made between Right Ctrl+Shift and Left Ctrl+Shift.
It seems even impossible to implement (at least by looking at the following article: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2847135/check-ctrl-shift-alt-keys-on-click-event).

The current shortcut keys are implemented here: <http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/browser/base/content/browser-sets.inc#346>.  But XUL <key> elements do not support events for ctrl+alt, which is sad...

wajnberg@il.ibm.com, I'm terribly sorry that I missed your earlier comments and patches on this bug.

While your general approach works, the correct fix is a bit more involved here.  Specifically, Ctrl+Left/Right Shift is a Windows only key combination, and it should only be handled if there are bidi keyboards installed on the system.  Also, this combination is not a mere toggle, if the left shift key is pressed, the direction should be switched to LTR, and if the right shift is pressed, it should be switched to RTL (thanks to Microsoft for coming up with this really complicated detail!).  I'm morphing this bug to be only about Windows.  For other platforms, we should file separate bugs if we find out about existing platform conventions.

I wrote a patch tonight to add this support, which I will attach shortly.  I wrote it on a Mac, so it's totally untested (it may not even compile!).  I'll submit it for review when I test it and make sure that it works as expected.

I find it difficult to use both key combinations, and sometimes find myself unable to change the direction because my right hand is actually used for the mouse movement. If I remember correctly, it was added only to more recent versions of Windows and before that it used to be a toggle key. If it doesn't take too much, I'd prefer if we can change this behavior using a preference or by an extension.

For now, I would rather us be compatible with the platform conventions.  Note that the existing shortcut (Ctrl+Shift+X) is being preserved.

Comment 47 Shai Berger 2011-09-16 05:02:33 PDT
For reference, note that Qt also uses Ctrl+Shift the way Windows does, that is, the left pair changes the field to LTR (and left aligned) and the right pair to RTL (right aligned). Qt only enables this when you enable support for RTL languages.

I don't know if GTK+ has a similar convention, but the Qt one, added to the fact that most Linux users (at least here in Israel) are well aware of Windows conventions, makes me think that Mozilla should adapt a similar behavior on Linux too.

Please file a bug to add this support to Qt.  I don't know a lot about the Qt APIs myself, so I would appreciate some help there.  :-)

From attachment 560299 [details] [diff] [review] [1] I understand that this fix is intended for Windows only. Will we have to keep using the other key binding under Linux and Mac? 

I understood previously that we intended to fix this bug when DOM3 events will get implemented in Gecko. Since this fix is not based on DOM3 (Am I right?), does it mean that we will prefer to remove this additional code in the future?

Yes, this fix is Windows only.  I talked to Behdad about how GTK handles text direction change, and he told me that the way that GTK works natively is that when changing the keyboard layout, if the text field doesn't contain any characters with a strong direction, its direction is automatically switched to the direction of the keyboard layout, which is a behavior that I think is a lot more intuitive than what we have in Windows.  He also told me that we need to use _gdk_x11_keymap_state_changed in order to get notified when the keyboard layout changes.  So we can file a bug to do this on GTK.

For Mac, I'm not personally aware of any native keybindings for text control direction change.  Do you know of any?

Well, the solution that I implemented works today!  :-)  When we get enough support in DOM3 so that we can avoid using Win32 API, we can remove that code.  But still I think that we want to emulate platform native behavior here, instead of adding Ctrl+Shift on all platforms.  Do you know of any other Linux/Mac app which handles the Ctrl+Shift keyboard toggle to direction of text controls?

Umm, sorry to chime in this late, I was only following dependent bugs. But I would still hope Ehsan or others could answer a couple of questions. 

- Is it now the case that Right-Shift can be told apart from Left-Shift?
- If not, how does the patch code differ (if it at all differs) from the Ctrl+Shift direction switching logic in BiDi Mail UI? i.e. the finite-state machine described here: 
http://www.mozdev.org/source/browse/bidiui/source/tbird/chrome/content/bidimailpack/bidimailpack-composer.js?rev=1.183

Not using the DOM APIs yet.  I just used the Win32 API for doing that.

It differs to that logic in two ways:

1. It doesn't implement Ctrl+Shift as a direction toggle switch, it implements the Windows behavior of differentiating between right and left shift keys.
2. It only implements this behavior on systems with at least two keyboard layouts of different directions, to be compatible with Windows.

I seem to have been misunderstood: The intention was not "I need something like this in Qt", it was "Qt already has this, please copy their feature into mozilla".

I see by comment #51 that there is no intention to do this (on Linux); I think that's a pity, but, oh well.

Thank you for fixing the problem on Windows.

Hi, I can not use "right ctrl+shift" in last Firefox Nightly (11.0a1 (2011-11-17)). Is it disabled because I could use this feature around one week ago but now I can not and I must use ctrl+shift+x in Firefox (still I can use this shortkey on chrome or other windows programs)
Thank you.
