Handling arrow keys in a text control
Question: Is there a way to handle special keys while editing a field (ITextControl)?
The answer appear to be "No", at least for OS X.
I want to handle up/down arrow keys to increment and decrement the field's value. The user can type a value (milliseconds), and bump the value in 10 ms increments with the up/down arrows.
The immediate solution for OS X appears to be implementing doCommandBySelector. (I don't know Cocoa at all, so there remains the hurdle of figuring out exactly how to work that in. Edit: OK, that was really easy.)
I haven't looked at the Windows side. It seems that the text fields should be handled in a more generic way instead of handing off to a platform-specific control, but I'm not going to head down that path at this point of trying to ship a product.
Comments? Ideas? Thanks...
Edit: Maybe I should have stated that differently. I'm not stuck, just don't want to recreate something that might have already been done in a branch, or if I'm going to submit a change, want to do it in a way that will be most helpful.
