Re: How to select from ContextMenuStrip without using the mouse?
Hi. I'm a long time visual studio + visual assist user. I've only recently started using vim at home for light coding on my macbook. I found ViEmu and it seems like it can greatly improve my productivity at work plus help me towards my goal of never having to use the mouse.
I've been using the trial version for about a week now and it's mostly fit into my daily workflow. One issue I do have though regards the "Goto Implementation" feature in Visual Assist (VAX). Before ViEmu, I would move the cursor over a keyword and press Alt + G (which is mapped to to VAssistX.GotoImplementation ) to goto that keywords declaration. If there were multiple possibilities, a ContextMenuStrip would pop up. And I could either use the keyboard arrows or the mouse to select between them.
However with ViEmu installed, the arrow keys no longer work. Once I press Alt + G, the options pops up. But then the focus goes back to the text editor. The arrow keys or hjkl move the cursor in the text editor. The only way to select an option from the popup is to use the mouse.
Do other people encounter this issue? Is there a solution that would enable me to use the keyboard to select an option? I posted a screenshot to show the issue.
For reference, I'm using Visual Studio Professional 2005 SP1, Visual Assist X 10.4.1626.1 built 2008.01.17, and ViEmu 2.2.9.
Thanks in advance. And thanks to the ViEmu author for a great product. I will be purchasing a license soon.
