Description CSights 2008-01-22 14:40:53 UTC
Version: 1.0 (using 4.00.00 (KDE 4.0.0), Debian packages) Compiler: gcc OS: Linux (i686) release 126.96.36.199 Hi, Dolphin's filter bar is very much like "find as you type" in konqueror, which is activated by default using '/'. It would make sense IMO to make the activation and behavior of filter bar more like "find as type". I.e. the filter bar appears upon pushing '/' (instead of default ctrl-I), you type, non-matching files and directories disappear, and then when you click or do anything else the filter bar disappears. Thanks and congratulations on KDE 4.0.0! C.

Thanks for your input, we originally wanted to take '/' but this shortcut clashes as soon as the terminal is opened :-( Do you have a suggestion how to solve this problem (I mean not technically, but more what should happen if someone presses '/' during the terminal is open)? > Thanks and congratulations on KDE 4.0.0! Thanks for testing and giving feedback :-)
Comment 2 CSights 2008-01-22 20:38:20 UTC
I'm not sure what you mean by "terminal". I tried opening konsole and then typing '/' with dolphin in the foreground and konsole in background. I didn't notice anything happening. Maybe the '/'-find-while-typing would only work if the focus is in the dolphin file listing pane. So one would have to click in that pane or tab to it before using '/'. (It would be better if the focus just needed to be on dolphin, but my guess is "terminal" is part of dolphin.) Thanks again! C.

> I'm not sure what you mean by "terminal". I meant selecting View -> Panels -> Terminal (F4), so that the embedded konsole is part of the Dolphin window. Now when '/' is the shortcut for the filter, it would not be possible typing any '/' inside the konsole/terminal ;-) > Maybe the '/'-find-while-typing would only work if the focus is > in the dolphin file listing pane. Hmm, as typing is not possible anyway without the focus, this might be a solution. I'll play around with this a little bit, let's see... :-)

Actually it would be even better if "find as you type" worked like in konqueror 3.5.x. From whatever position in the file listing, if you type a letter find the next directory or file that matches. many keystrokes within a short time should result in longer search term. (just like in old konqueror)
Comment 5 Nicolas Brisset 2009-01-16 18:07:28 UTC
I also think that this would be a nice feature, and I don't see a problem with the embedded console as this should work only when the file list pane has the focus.

Resetting assignee to default as per bug #305719
Comment 7 Todd 2012-09-02 19:51:15 UTC
Is there a reason you can't manually change the shortcut? Changing the shortcut by default now would probably be confusing for many people used to the current shortcut.

Dolphion 2.0/KDE4.8.5. I'm not sure how it worked in the old Konqueror, but partially typing in the filename, will automatically select the file.
Comment 9 Jekyll Wu 2012-10-31 23:08:07 UTC
FYI, if you use KDE SC 4.9.x (can't remember clearly about 4.8.x), "/" will always be intercepted by konsolepart (the embedded terminal) when it has the focus, instead of triggering a action. So Peter's concern in comment #1 is "solved". (In reply to comment #5) > I don't see a problem > with the embedded console as this should work only when the file list pane > has the focus. It was a problem, because typing "/" in the embedded terminal would trigger the filter bar, which made the embedded terminal practically useless.

It is quite *different* from "find as you type" . And dolphin supports "find as you type" too (no shortcut is needed to activate that feature ), just maybe not as friendly and noticeable as in other filemanagers (thunar, pcmanfm). Or, have I misunderstood what that "find as you type" feature mean in the old and new konqueror?
