Cursor activation on selecting ssh-tab

Postby frankijskes » Wed Apr 21, 2010 12:20 am

When selecting a ssh-tab it would be nice to be able to type immediately, without also selecting the screen.

Now: when mutliple tabs are open, selecting a previous tab will show that session. When I want to enter commands, I have to select the screen first (another click with the mouse)
Wanted: when mutliple tabs are open, selecting a previous tab will show that session and activate the cursor, so I can begin typing immediately

Oh yeah that would be nice to do this because this is really annoying to click a second time inside the selected windows...

Any chance this feature could be added into the next release? It does get a little annoying to have to click a second time within the window to get focus. This is probably compounded by the fact that I always forget to do that!

Its likely it will not. I implemented this before joining the mRemoteNG project and this causes a number of issues. The main issue is with dual monitors. When dragging between screens mRemote would switch back and forth between mRemote and PuTTY. It also will cause PuTTY sessions to swap tabs when switching from one to the other. This option would need to be given the ability to disable.

For me it would be great. As you say, could be a voluntary option is enabled, and those who work with 2 monitors do not activate and those interested in this functionality, yes.

I have gotten other people to use your software, the only thning that everyone complains about is the screen not becoming active for putty. I agree with the last post that this could be an option that could be turned on or off. You could set the default to off and then most of us could turn it on, the few that wanted to could leave this option set to off :)

I know its already been said but I would like to further support the implementation of this feature. It would make the work with mRemoteNG better for most users I think, the minority of the user can configure this feature off.

If it wasn't for this "problem", mRemoteNG would be perfect for me (I previously used Poderosa, but I'm having some display problems lately and that project is no more developed since years).
This is because I often switch from a text editor to mRemoteNG and back using Alt-Tab, so when I switch from the text editor to mRemoteNG (where I have some Putty consoles open) I need to use the mouse and click to focus Putty. This is really weird, since I don't even have my hand over the mouse at that moment.

So the problem is almost the same.

For the solution, anyway, I would suggest a compromise: can you implement a key combination to switch focus from mRemoteNG to the hosted application (Putty in my case)?

I explain it better, if mRemoteNG would provide, for example, Tab (or Ctrl+Down or something else) to do that job I could use mRemoteNG this way:
  • from editor to mRemoteNG: Alt+Tab followed by Tab (no need to use the mouse and I already have my finger over the Tab key)
  • from mRemoteNG to editor: Alt+Tab (no need to use the mouse)

Unless this is already implemented and I wasn't able to find that key (in that case, please, let me know which is that key/key combination).

Then you implemented it wrong. Calling SetFocus when clicking on a tab shouldn't change the behaviour of dragging a parent window from one monitor to another.

This seems to be a really common request. I'll take a look and see what I can do.
