Definehotkeys assignments continue in Graphics Mode


#1

Hot keys that are active on a form in data mode remain in effect in graphics mode.

Is that the desired behavior?

My example: I’ve defined arrow key “hot keys” on a form using the formFRONT: label commands. It works great… even better with the 10.1.1 update.

But, when I need to edit/update the form in graphics mode, the arrow keys no longer nudge objects or move the text cursor in text boxes, i.e. object procedures, etc. They are still linked to the hot key definitions.

Is there a way to automatically disable hot key assignments when entering Graphics mode - then re-enable them when returning to data mode?

No, but that might be a good suggestion for a possible future feature, so I have added it to BitBucket.
