suggestion: make "Confirmation needed" window a Windows standard window

#1 Post by flow » 2019-04-05 09:26

I'm using Logitech's SmartMove feature, which automatically moves the cursor to a window's YES button when that window pops up. My issue: the "Confirmation needed" window (that pops up when deleting remote files) is different from the Windows standard, so it's not recognized, and thus SmartMove isn't working. I'd like to be able to benefit from SmartMove when deleting stuff with the mouse, so please make the "Confirmation needed" window (more of) a Windows standard window.

A small bug: unlike Windows' confirm delete windows, the "Confirmation needed" window can't be closed with ESC (nor with Alt+F4).

It already is a standard Windows TaskDialog. Contact Logitech so that they can add support for this standard Windows feature already added in Windows Vista.

Damn, then I'm f*cked... they haven't updated the software for my mouse in ages.

Weird though that FileZilla is the only program where it's not (fully) working. (It works when deleting local files.)

No idea which Windows you use, but I have that feature built in (Windows 7). It's in Mouse properties and called "Snap To - Automatically move the pointer to the default button in a dialog box". That may be the reason Logitech stopped development on the tool (which was for the XP era, I guess).

But, I can confirm that the Windows built-in feature does also NOT work at all for the "Confirmation needed" window that appears when trying to delete a remote object. It works for the same operation at the local side.

Could be because it's a Yes/No question it has no default.

There are some tickets about how wxWidgets uses TaskDialogs, but the important ones are won't fix. :(

Thank you for confirming. Windows 10 here.

Deleting local and remote files both lead to a Yes/No question, but it only fails for the delete window that remote files get.

I tried a couple of things, enabled the "Snap to" feature boco mentioned. Pressed Win+R and entered a program that does not exist, e.g. flooblecrank and click on OK to get an error message. The mouse cursor does not jump to the only button in the TaskDialog. Looks like not even Microsoft itself implements its own "Snap To" feature to work correctly with even the most basic Windows functionality.
