  • DCR: Enable accessing most buttons on each module via a single (arrow) key

    What version of StreetDeck is this bug report for?

    1.0.6.3


    Please give a basic description of the issue here.

    DCR: Enable accessing most buttons on each module via a single (arrow) key


    Is the systemt that is listed in your CarPC specs under your user name the same system where you encountered this bug?

    yes


    If no, please describe your system here.




    Please provide any relevent information regarding the issue you have encountered.

    Using keyboard only.
    As it is, you must use all four arrow keys to navigate the various buttons in SD. For example, on the home screen, there are 3 rows and 3 columns of buttons. If the center most button is highlighted, you must use the up arrow if you want to highlight the center button in the top row, or the down arrow if you want to highlight the center button in the bottom row. If you click the right arrow, you will be at the right most button in the center row. Clicking the right button again, will result in no action.

    Desired functionality: one should be able to use a single button to continuously circle through the buttons on any one module, or set of buttons on any one module. In essence this is tab stop functionality.

    Example 1: on home screen, you should be able to use the right arrow key (for example) and by turning it repeatedly, cycle through all of the available buttons.

    Example 2: On the music screen, you may want to split this functionality into two sets of tab stops: one for the menu options on the left (select music, search, etc.), and then require a TAB button - or any other button, to get into the list of currently queued media. If that media 'set' is then selected, you should be able to cycle through all songs in the list in a looping fashion also.

    Both good points. These should be user-selectable options, if possible, as they would add significantly to the ease of keyboard use.

    User selectable because I don't want/need to repeatedly cycle all options with a single key at the present time and would prefer to have the focus highlight "stop" if there are no more buttons above (if hitting the up arrow) the current button as it is now.
