Ticket #2734 (closed defect: fixed)
Log activity should not update search results every keystroke
|Reported by:||greenfeld||Owned by:||humitos|
|Priority:||Unspecified by Maintainer||Milestone:||Unspecified by Release Team|
Searching a log file using the Search toolbar up top updates the result every keystroke. The updates also highlight every example found in the text of the current value of the search bar (even if a single letter), and may shift the text side-to-side to show the results if word wrap is disabled.
This can make it very painful to use on an XO-1 with large log files such as shell.log with Sugar and debug logging enabled.
To borrow what seems to be a common (but not necessarily the most user obvious?) Sugar search box approach, we likely should return new search results in Log only when the <Enter> key is pressed, and somehow indicate when no results are returned as well.
Seen in OLPC 11.2.0 os14.
