Can't open file using 'Find File in Project'

Reported by marzapower | April 20th, 2009 @ 08:53 AM | in 0.2

I am using redcar under Jaunty, updated to the latest release.

When I use the 'Find File in Project' functionality, I can find the files I am looking for, but I can not open them.


  1. Open redcar using 'redcar .'
  2. Project -> Find File in Project
  3. Type 'routes'
  4. Select 'routes.rb'
  5. Press enter => nothing
  6. Double click on file => nothing

    I think this is that I have only implemented basic keys for the file finder. You can only type, press up/down and press Enter. Clicking doesn't work and if the text entry box loses focus it will not let you open the file until you click back into the text box and press 'enter'.

    I will get on and fix this up. Thanks.

    I still cannot open files, even giving focus back to the text box and pressing 'enter'. I tried each "intuitive" combination of up/down/click/focus/enter but got no results.

    Thank you!

    I haven't worked in any open source project so forgive me if I make extra work by just posting here ;)

    The problem here is that key = Gtk::Accelerator.get_label(kv, ks) returns a representation for the user (as stated in the api). My system language is german so it doesnt return "Up" "Down" "Return" but "Hoch" "Runter" "Eingabetaste".

    This works fine for me:

      def entry_key_press(gdk_eventkey)

      kv = gdk_eventkey.keyval
      key = Gdk::Keyval.to_name(kv)
      if key == "Down"
      elsif key == "Up"
      elsif key == "Return"

    I actually cloned redcar now and am working on improving the open file dialog so you don't need to paste the code in by hand.

    I am gonna add some functionality and comments.
