Filtering with selection lists

Reported by: Jari Häkkinen Owned by: everyone
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: web Version: 2.7
Keywords: Cc:

Description

The selection list filters in list views works if the green check box is used after selection but if the selection is finalized with hitting the return key something goes wrong. The selection is altered such that additional selections are added to the filter. I have tested this with selecting different plugin types in the plugin definitions listing.

It is intentional and needed if using only a keybord and follows the same usage pattern as dropdown lists in most other applications.

Pressing ENTER should select/deselect the currently highlighted option and submit the page.

Pressing SPACE should select/deselect the currently highlighted option but not submit the page.

I agree on the SPACE usage but is ENTER really what one expects? I'd expect ENTER to submit the currently selected list not change it depending on highlights and selected/not selected. So, it does what it is supposed to.
