right click live item

Asked by Timothy Cooper on 2017-03-15

When right-clicking or middle-clicking an item in the Live list view, the selection changes to the clicked item, but it does NOT go live. Is this a bug or an undocumented feature of some kind? (Windows 10 user, OpenLP 2.4.5)

Hi Timothy,

It's more of an unintentional side-effect. The live list view control supports reacting to right and middle clicks, but we don't act on them (which is why the slide doesn't change).

We'll see if there's a way to switch off right and middle clicks, but if it's more than a simple setting, we probably won't spend the effort on it as it is a corner case that no one has encountered up until you.

Fair enough. I don't know a ton about cross-platform GUI stuff, but I can't think it would be simple to intercept the right/middle clicks. If there's no way to switch it off, would it be possible for the right/middle click to call the left-click subroutine? Then it's at least consistent (although I've no idea if that's a "better" way to handle things).

Hi Timothy,

I had a look last night, and we'd basically have to intercept all mouse events, and then selectively ignore or engage them. Not hard, but not a simple switch either. It's unlikely to be fixed immediately as there are much more pressing issues at the moment, but please create a bug report for this so that we can keep track of it.

Thanks for alerting us to this.
