Comments on Action Items

  1. These items are waiting for the creation of high contrast ready bitmaps by Stella Schulze (STS). The implementation of the interfaces to set bitmaps/image list for high contrast mode is done.

  2. Not all SvTreeListBoxes of our office enable the key handling of right/left cursor to expand and collapse an entry. This is inconsistent and so we decided to change this behavior in a next version.

  3. The SvTreeListBox supports the key <ALT><ENTER> to change into the Inplace-Edit-Mode. But because this is the normal key to show the properties dialog, we decided to delete this feature. However you can change into the Implace-Edit-Mode by <F2>.

  4. It is not possible to travel through the main entries in the TreeListBox of the options dialog. When the main entry gets the focus, it shows instantly its sub entries. The Box should behave consistently to other TreeListBoxes or contain a delay.
