Shortcuts in the dialogue object

November 17, 2012 | 7:41 pm

I’m working on a patch that uses YouTube videos, and as part of it, users would need to be able to copy/paste URLs (because nobody is going to type that whole thing out). I have a dialogue pop-up where they should be able to do that, but attempting to command+v (or command+c/command+x) all just make an error noise. You can still cut/copy/paste in the dialogue box using a secondary click, but that’s a drag. Is there something I can change in the inspector to allow shortcuts?

Looks like it’s impossible to paste directly into dialogue. Works into textedit though – here is a patch you can edit to suit.
