Pluggo : entering text or precision control in general

Hello,

I know it’s a pluggo matter but i’d love not to have to sign to the
pluggo list for just a little question.

I have very bad time trying to improve my pluggo’s interfaces, and,
beside the fact we can’t use ubumenu or drag & drop, we can’t select
flonum/numbox objects to enter precise values with the keyboard.

Do i run writing a keyboard events handler to flonum/numboxes for pluggo
or is it fucked already ? (pardon my french)

What are your solutions, guys, to get usable precision controls in
pluggos ?

Thanks in advance

The (select) message sent to flonum/numboxes puts the focus on them and allows you to use your keyboard to enter precise values.
With the right oulet of flonum/numboxes (bang when tab key is pressed) connected to a select message that goes in the next flonum/numbox, you can jump between numboxes with tab and use your keyboard values.
This is used in the "color" part of lots of inspectors patches.
(and it works in pluggo here, on osx)

But this will only work in hosts which pass the keystrokes. This is not
always the case, and probably the problem of f.e. (he described it as
such…)

I guess the only way would be to have a precision mode which will
control the values more precise…
