Yes / No dialogs and keyboard control

#1 Post by Castler »

It would be very nice if Dialog.yesnoPopup and Dialog.yesnoLongPopup optionally or always responded to "Y", "y", "N", and "n".

I would agree with this, but actually I think that's more of a module-based thing. The engine definitely supports this kind of thing, already. It's just that the modules you are playing quite frankly weren't coded with that in mind.

It is up to the engine to some extent; modules can do whatever they like, but simple Yes / No messages (both within each game module and within the boot module) are handled by the engine's base Dialog:yesnoPopup and related functions, so if Dialog:yesnoPopup and related functions responded to keystrokes, it would be helpful.

Here's a patch that accomplishes this, if DG is interested.
