Option Search auto-enter

Post by Reiquel »

GZDoom currently requires pressing enter after selecting "Option Search" before search terms can be typed. Since "Search:" is the only field on this screen, I find that a bit silly. Can we have it auto-enter?

The Option Search Field class is in wadsrc\static\zscript\engine\ui\menu\search\searchfield.zs

I think this is a limitation of the menu system. The option search is just a generic options menu which just happens to have an input control as its only active content.

sounds like we might have to add an "auto-enter-first-control" property to the menu
