[squeak-dev] Another oddity

Hi, there.

Yes, it was the simplest way to implement key-press response with sync between textfield and list-filter state. It occasionally bugs me too. See ListChooser >> #filterEvent:for: and the end of #buildWith:.

One could forward #textEdited: from the input field to set the list's item filter. Yet, there is no way to forward a "filter changed" event to the text field. Well, you could choose to only install the keyboard-event filter for the list morph and combine that with #textEdited:. Then you would spread the sync code across 2 methods, but you could improve the user experience. :-)

Text cursor placement seems to be ignored.


The essence of object orientation is that objects collaborate  to achieve a goal.
