Feature request: umenu selection and staying open

May 14 2009 | 11:24 pm

I love the umenu and autopopulate, it’s fantastic. Plus I like that you can move around with the up/down arrows, or without dragging, if you click and release on the actual menu without selecting right away. So while you’re using the arrows/mouse to move through the items, you can hit Enter to select one and close the menu, or hit Tab to close without selecting. Is there a way to select without closing the list?

Depending on whether it’s a real pain to add, I’d love to see:

Enter — selects and closes
Tab — selects without closing
Backspace — closes, no selection

Mouse click — selects and closes
Shift-click — selects without closing (maybe)

The combination of arrow keys/mouse and Tab in this design would make file browsing even better with the umenu.

If I’m missing something that’s already there, do tell…
