Search Result Context Menu Item and Underlining
« on: September 29, 2012, 11:06:09 PM »
Puzzled by difference in behavior...

With some search results in FARR (2.200.01) under Windows 7 Professional:

  Right-clicking brings up context sensitive menu with no letters underlined

  Pressing the apps / menu key on the keyboard instead of right-clicking brings up a context sensitive menu that does have underlined letters

Any ideas why?

Looks like mouser has two separate sets of code for the on_rightclick and on_keypress functions. Might need to consolidate those into a single function to resolve this inconsistency.

Very strange.. I'm not even sure how this is possible but I will look into it.

Isn't that directly related to the feature of not underlining the menu-trigger letters by default? Unless that menu is triggered by a keyboard event, that is, and it can be set to always show, but with quite different procedures depending in the Windows version (XP, 7).
