Edit multistanza groups- interface closes when you click enter

Component: Ecopath Version:
Severity: minor Keywords:


Minor problem with exiting cells. Clicking enter after editing a cell such as K parameter (first parameter on top) will cause the interface to close instead of moving to the next cell.This happens with the top 4 parameters (not in the table at the bottom) When editing the stanza parameters (age, mortality, etc) clicking enter locks the number into the cell- this doesnt close the interface.

This is a direct result from the Windows user interface guidelines. By default, pressing [ENTER] will invoke the default ok/apply button on a dialogue box. Edit groups and Edit Multi-Stanza are such dialogue boxes.

A conflicting user interface guidelines pertains to grids, where [ENTER] will apply the value being edited in a cell.

When [ENTER] is pressed while entering a grid cell in a dialogue box, the conflict is clear. What happens now is that the [ENTER] keypress is literally eaten-up by the grid, never to reach the ok/apply button. THe same confusion will apply to the [ESC] button, which both cancels a grid edit and cancels a dialogue box

I don't know what to do here. Let's file the bug but not waste time on it.

Ok, ok, *resolved* ;)
But know that this violates the Windows User Interface Design guidelines!
