Subject [jira] [Commented] (PIVOT-685) SHIFT+DOWN keystroke within TextArea do not expand the selection past an empty line
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2011 13:27:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-685?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13042161#comment-13042161

Noel Grandin commented on PIVOT-685:
------------------------------------

The problem here is that the way we have defined selection indexes, it is impossible to distinguish
between the index that indicates before the first newline, and the index that indicates before
the second newline.

The obvious fix is to include the \n character in the calculation of indexes, but that will
introduce a bunch of special cases elsewhere.

> SHIFT+UP & SHIFT+DOWN keystrokes can be used to expand the selection to the previous
or next line respectively.
> However SHIFT+DOWN fails to extend the selection past an empty line.
> SHIFT+UP appears to work as expected
> Given the following text, and the caret positioned at the start of the TextArea, the
first press of SHIFT+DOWN will select 'abc', the second will also select 'def', but third
and subsequent presses will have no effect due to an empty 3rd line.
> 'abc <newline>
> def <newline>
> <empty line>
> ghi'
> Workaround by using the mouse, or SHIFT+LEFT & SHIFT+RIGHT
