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:
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
display a large number of macros without requiring scrolling
Page navigation buttons will be automatically displayed if there are too many macros to fit
provide a filter to query macros by partial name and/or code
By default all macros will be displayed
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 now moves to the first entry in the list when the dialog appears.
Changes applied to vpms, revision 3939
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.
Focus order fixed in vpms, revision 3942
Tested VPMS. OK.
