nextgrid, cursor keys home/end orientation preference
Posted 20 September 2012 - 03:09 AM
i'm not sure if this would require a lot of re-working into the component. but i thought i would ask since i work in a lot of ms access databases, the table during viewing, and not having this feature in the nextgrids makes things fustrating at times since i've been using these features for years.
currently, in nextgrid, when you press the Home key, the rowselector goes to the First record, and when you press the End key the rowselector goes to the very Last record. however, there is no feature to have the rowselector (when set to individual cells--for editing purposes) (or, cell selector) to go either First column or Last column in selected row.
ms access functionality:
in ms access, while in table view, pressing ctrl+up or ctrl+down keys will bring the rowselector to the top of the First or Last row's record. and, when you want to travel left/right within the selected row, (cell editing), pressing the Home or End keys bring the cell selector to the First column or Last column. this helps me to move quickly to a column and make quick editing in the tables or viewing query results.
is there a flag you could add in the nextgrids properties ?, like opAccess and opNextGrid for instance.
would you consider adding this feature into the nextgrid / nextDBgrid component ?

I have a suggestion for solving this problem:
in file NxDBGrid.pas:
VK_HOME: SendMessage(Handle, WM_VSCROLL, SB_TOP, 0); VK_END: SendMessage(Handle, WM_VSCROLL, SB_BOTTOM, 0);change to
VK_HOME: begin if not FDataLink.Editing then SendMessage(Handle, WM_VSCROLL, SB_TOP, 0); end; VK_END: begin if not FDataLink.Editing then SendMessage(Handle, WM_VSCROLL, SB_BOTTOM, 0); endPlease boki, you can change the source code or insert another option like "goAlternatePosKey"?

Added something like this:
VK_HOME: if not ((gtEdit in GridState) or (gtInput in GridState)) then SendMessage(Handle, WM_VSCROLL, SB_TOP, 0); VK_END: if not ((gtEdit in GridState) or (gtInput in GridState)) then SendMessage(Handle, WM_VSCROLL, SB_BOTTOM, 0);
I hope that this is fine too.
