Pressing Enter in the Find Results does not expand tree.

Hi,

I am not sure if this was there before but I keep pressing Enter instead of + so it must have been :-)

Even if it wasn't it would be useful that the tree expanded on pressing Enter since it would simplify the navigation of the tree when looking for a usage.

R# 5 Beta 2, VS2010rc.

Cheers,
Jose

Hello,

Even if it wasn't it would be useful that the tree expanded on
pressing Enter since it would simplify the navigation of the tree when
looking for a usage.


I'm sure the tree expands at least with these actions:
• Mouse clicking on
• Mouse double-clicking a non-navigable node
• +
• Right arrow
• *
• ExpandAll button in the toolar
• R# | Options | Env | S&N | Expand...tree by default
• Enter key on non-navigable nodes

I think the expand-by-default thing could prove useful (used to be broken
in a few pre-release v5 builds).

As for the enter key, it only expands the non-navigable nodes (namespaces,
for example, if they're included by the current grouping). On navigable targets,
it navigates to highlight the target without focus leaving the find results
tool window (Ctrl+Enter navigates completely). Having Enter key do double-action
(navigate and expands) confuses because one of the actions is always unexpected.
So I don't think it could be changed right now. Hope the workarounds (right
arrow key, or expand-by-default option, or choosing another grouping) helps
with your scenario.

Hi,

Thanks for the long explanation.

I see now that the difference is that in 5.0 the usages are grouped whereas in 4.5 they weren't. This makes sense when searching for usages of very popular members but for members with a few usages it is adds one more step/keystroke. The Expand by Default should go a long way to solving the problem although it is not working on the build I have at the moment which is a week or two old. I will install Beta 2 later today and try it.

Cheers,
Jose

Hello,

I believe there's no difference in groupings between v4 and v5. You can choose
any grouping like, or no grouping altogether.

Yes, expand-by-default was broken in a few builds. Not quite sure about Beta2,
but in the most recent nightly builds it's definitely working once again.

You are right, I had different Group By options in both installations (doh!)
