SOLVED DWC2 autocomplete escape key
A Former User last edited by A Former User
When working with DWC and editing g-code DWC2 will send the entry closest in autocomplete even if you hit escape and the list of autocomplete suggestions dissapear.
have previosuly sent command. i edit it and hit escape to remove the auto suggestion.
after hitting escape the input area shows the desired command, and no auto complete suggestion.
After hitting enter DWC has transmitted the undesired command as well as populating it in the input area.
I.e. what was shown when I pressed enter is not what was transmitted. Could lead to potentially icky situations.
@bearer Yes, I noticed this a while ago, and it's really annoying behaviour! I believe it has been reported to @chrishamm. I tend to have autocomplete turned off, so haven't noticed it for a while, except that I logged into the DWC with a different computer, and had this issue. Turn off autocomplete in Settings > General > Disable auto-completion.
I do recall there being issues about it being in the way and a general pain in the rear section. At which point I did some dirty tricks. But here we're actually doing something that could be potentially harmfull and given the user thinks (rightfully so) he has sent one command but DWC sent another he may not notice until its too late.
IMO autocomplete should be turned off by default until its both safe, and, preferably usable.
The auto-complete list has been slightly improved in DWC 2.0.5. Please give it a try if you can.

I tried the update 2 hopefully you can work out the issue from this.
I see, thanks. Looks like I'll have to do another DSF release in order to generate a new
duetsoftwareframeworkpackage. Can you check if
sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get install --reinstall duetsoftwareframeworkfixes it?

@bearer said in DWC2 autocomplete escape key:

I had that when I was doing PID tuning on the weekend. After tuning completed I entered
M307 H1to see the results and instead if started auto tuning again. It took me few seconds to realize what was happening.
Let's see how 2.0.5 will behave in this regard.
@bearer It's valid but perhaps you had a wrong date set when you performed the last update. I did an update on my RaspPi yesterday and that worked without problems. You can get those
invalid for another xxxerror messages if the system time is (or probably was) wrong.
@chrishamm thats the first think i considered and the reason the system time and date was included.
idk what the issue is, but last time i removed the duet packages and reinstalled it only to find the "sd" "card" got wiped as well. i'll test it when it sorts itself out. guess i'll try next week
@chrishamm date didn't changed but the issue seems to have sorted itself, anyways;
Thank you! it seems the issues have been resolved, and we now have the option of selecting from the autocomplete list with enter or tab. Where enter sends immediately and tab just populates the input area for editing. Hitting escape to dismiss the autocomplete list and subsequently pressing enter will send what is shown in the input area.
Using arrow keys up/down will bring back the autocomplete list, I guess it could skip that if the only stored entry is identical to the input area, but other than that a nice feature. Allowing the delete key to act as a hotkey to remove the currently highlighted autocomplete entry would be the cherry on top.
two thumbs up!
