Subject Multiple selections in List
Date Thu, 03 Feb 2011 21:26:31 GMT
I just compiled the lists tutorials rewritten in Scala (needs a little 
more work to be complete), and I was surprised that I cannot do multiple 
disjoint large selections. Same behavior in the online applet.

Let me explain: in most lists/tables I use, be it in Windows Explorer 
(list of files), Thunderbird (list of messages), Java's JTable and so 
on, I can click on an item to select it (exclusively), then Shift+click 
to select a range, then Ctrl+click beyond the last place, resulting in a 
range and one distinct item selected.
So far, that's the behavior of Pivot.
But in the above lists, I can further do a Ctrl+Shift+click below to get 
two ranges. In Pivot, it just selects between the first click and the 
last one. :-(

Is it intended or just an overlook? In the latter case, is there any 
chance to see this fixed? It is typically the small (?) task one can 
attack to scratch their own itches, but I need to improve my Pivot 
knowledge before daring to fix code there.

In case I wasn't clear:

bbbb <-- click
cccc  |
dddd  | selected range
eeee  |
ffff <-- Shift+click
hhhh <-- Ctrl+click
iiii  |
jjjj  | second selected range
kkkk  |
llll <-- Ctrl+Shift+click
