If double-click is on empty area, then invoke back.
Review Request #123658 - Created May 6, 2015 and discarded
If mouse double click is done on the empty area, then go to parent directory.
RR 123929 (kfilewidgets)
Sometimes when double click is done on the directories, it goes into that directory and comes back. That's because of some other bug due to which "-1" index is passed, although index should not be -1 if there is successful click on some directory.
Actually two meanings are possible for going back. Either going into the parent directories or go back to the directory in the history. Current patch is in accordance with later one.
Which one would have better use case ? ;)
Please also add usability group for such reviews. I have never seen an application that does this nor would I consider that intuitive behavior. Also, many mice have dedicated back/forward buttons you can use.
Hi I made a bug report about this behavior because it is the only missing feature in dolphin. and my bug report was a duplicate. so also other users want this feature.
I know it from qttabbar an qt extension for the windows explorer (file manager). feel free to test it there.
why I think it was a realy good feature:
- because you can navigate with the mouse in the main window without using buttons or the keyboard
- it's fast
I never had problems with qttabbar that I change the folder when I would select an file but maybe you can offer this feature only in areas where there are realy no folders/files. most of the time you have less files in an folder that it would be no problem to click in an empty area.
please add this feature. at least optional with an setting.
Double click to go back works fine for the people who uses activate item on single click. But the ones who uses activate item on double click may find problems with it. They can accidentally double-click on an empty area but instead they wanted to double click on item/folder, making whole set of icons disappear and go up. As suggested by David, we can set this feature to enable only when single click mode is enabled, otherwise keep it disabled. I think that would be good and that's what I have changed it this revision.
