Description Todd 2011-01-04 08:01:51 UTC
Version:           SVN (using KDE 4.5.90) 
OS:                Linux

When navigating items in programs like Dolphin and Konqueror, the left and right arrow keys wrap around rows.  In other words, pressing left when at the beginning of a row moves up to the last item of the next row up, while pressing right when at the end of the a row moves down to the first item of the next row down (for left-to-right languages, at least).

However, when using grouped views, however, this doesn't work.  If you press left at the beginning of the line or right at the end, nothing happens.

Reproducible: Always




I was told this is not a bug in Dolphin, instead it is a bug in KCategorizedView (see the discussion in Bug 152985)

Please check bug report #237553.

This is indeed a feature, but with left/right I can be less restrictive and fix this bug. I take it.

Please note this was intended to be a feature, but I think this very case (changing row with left/right buttons) makes sense, so yeah.

Fix keyboard issues when groups are enabled

When groups are enabled in Dolphin the key-up and key-down keys did not behave
consistent in comparison to traditional views or like done in editors.
