  • Shift+Ctrl+mouseclick select bug

    Shift+Ctrl+mouseclick select bug
    This bug exists in BC2 and BC3

    What does work: (Shift+Ctrl+click lets you add a second block of items to existing section)
    File1 (click)
    File2
    File3 (Shift+click)
    File4
    File5
    File6
    File7 (Ctrl+click)
    File8
    File9 (Shift+Ctrl+click)

    Results In:
    File1
    File2
    File3

    File4
    File5
    File6
    File7
    File8
    File9

    Where BLUE is the resulting selection.

    What doesn't work: (Shift+Ctrl+click should let you remove a block of items from an existing section)
    File1
    File2
    File3
    File4
    (Ctrl+click)
    File5
    File6
    File7
    (Shift+Ctrl+click)
    File8
    File9

    Should result in:
    File1
    File2
    File3

    File4
    File5
    File6
    File7
    File8
    File9

    But both BC2 and BC3 leave the entire block selected!

    How Windows Explorer does it:

    The Shift+Ctrl+click selects or deselects all items in the range based on the last item clicked. In other words:
    • If the last item is already selected, then a Shift+Ctrl+click will deselect all of the items in the range. (excluding the last item itself which remains selected)
    • If the last item is not selected, then a Shift+Ctrl+click will select all of the items in the range.

    In build 454, we will change [Ctrl+Shift+Click] to deselect the entire range from the anchor if the item clicked on is selected. We feel this behavior is closest to the Windows Interface Guidelines.

    FYI, the behavior you describe in Explorer which uses a listview control does not perfectly follow the guidelines. The listbox control which our treeview was originally designed to mimic doesn't follow them perfectly either.

      Thank you Erik. I would actually prefer that the entire range be deselected...but assumed the Scooter team would prefer to mimic Windows Explorer. I am pleased that you intend to implement the functionality as I also would prefer it...
