Quotealt_key_abort.patch : makes the <ALT> key the permanent and only script abort key.I'd be OK with this, but in addition to the issues waterwingz brought up earlier, I think a broader consideration of what alt mode means is required (ref http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=10589.0 )
alt_key_abort.patch : makes the <ALT> key the permanent and only script abort key.
Normally, I'm in favor of more script control, but I think it might be confusing to have a different abort key for each script.
Windows has one abort key: ctrl+alt+delete.
I've been using the <ALT> key as the script abort key, and it's pretty easy to get used to.
While we're at it, how do you like the idea of also eliminating the shutter key as the script start key?
There are actually 2 <ALT> modes. <ALT> with script not running, and <ALT> with script running. Pressing <ALT> currently always switches you to normal mode. I think that behavior shouldn't change.
While we're at it, how do you like the idea of also eliminating the shutter key as the script start key? I take a lot of unwanted pictures trying to start a script when I'm not in <ALT> mode. I'm thinking it would be good to make the first option in the script menu "Run Script".
I am in favor of making all or most keyboard actions configurable. In that case, you'd be free to assign "start script" to whatever button you wanted, or none at all. Having a "run" option on the script menu wouldn't be a bad idea in this case, so people could unassign it but still be able to start scripts.
It looks like you can only start a script with the shutter key when you're in <ALT> mode, and the CHDK menu isn't active. Is that correct?
If so, then the only key that you couldn't use as a script start key would be the MENU key?
QuoteIf so, then the only key that you couldn't use as a script start key would be the MENU key?Why? If you want to be able to reassign keys, you might as well go all the way and let the user reassign the Menu key to whatever he/she wants it to do.
I was thinking you need the menu key to get out of the <alt> mode CHDK menus before the script would start. I guess you could press the menu key again to start the script, but I bet that would lead to a lot of accidental script starts.
I'm guessing that key usage will probably remain somewhat context sensitive (modal) if / when they become re-assignable.
