Add popup to edit dialogs to display available macros

Description

From http://www.openvpms.org/project/macro-list-popup-hot-key

Currently the only way to view available macros is via the Administration -> Lookups workspace.
Macros should be able to be viewed while performing editing where macros are supported.
Currently, this applies to:

  • EditDialog (all IMObject editing)

  • ParameterDialog (report parameters)

This change would have a macro dialog pop up when a specific key combination is pressed.

This dialog would:

  1. display a table of macros
    The table would display the code and name nodes of the macros
    By default, it would be sorted on name

  2. display a large number of macros without requiring scrolling
    Page navigation buttons will be automatically displayed if there are too many macros to fit

  3. provide a filter to query macros by partial name and/or code
    By default all macros will be displayed

  4. be closed by pressing an OK button, or the ESC key

Focus not on first entry in list when dialogue appears.
Takes two tabs to go from Search field to Find button.

Focus fixed .

Tab order still incorrect. Now takes 3 tabs from Search text box to Find button. Tab order seems to include UI components not in dialogue.
