-Cannot ESC message F4 in archive

The behaviour described in the bug report is either by design, or would be far too complex/time-consuming to be changed

-Cannot ESC message F4 in archive

Post by *HPA »

When you press the F4 button to edit a file which is in an archive, the ESC key doesn't close the query that appears.

The query is: "Do you really want to unpack the selected file to a temporary directory and edit it?"

This also was in the TC 8.01.

Recently I've written a tiny program allowing to close Yes-No messageboxes by Esc. I think Esc may work as No perfectly.

Yeah, you can click the Yes or No button.

But when I press the F4 key with my keyboard, I want to close the dialog with the ESC key. I don't want to grab my mouse and move the mousepointer and click the No button.

I could press the Alt+N keys to close the query.

I think about every window in TC you can closed with ESC.

I'm using Yes-No-Cancel in some places because of the misfeature of MessageBox, but this is confusing people too. So for now I will leave it as it is.

Since there was no need to stop or pause its functionality, there is no exit or close function, just kill the process. I start it from Task Scheduler with elevated rights and never close, it just always does its small job while PC is on.

I also start it this way. So just to make it clear: killing rundll32.exe process which starts the library should completely unload dll from memory?

Yes, that's correct. This will stop loading the DLL into new processes, but it will remain loaded to some processes for some time (that's how global hooks work).
