6.2.3 Navigating in dialogs

Dialogs usually have a lot of elements in them such as buttons, edit fields, memo fields, list boxes and so on. To activate one of these fields, choose one of the following methods:

  1. Click on the element with the mouse.
  2. Press the Tab key till the focus reaches the element.
  3. Press the highlighted letter in the element’s label. If the focus is currently on an element that allows editing, then Alt should be pressed simultaneously with the highlighted letter. For a button, the action associated with the button will then be executed.

Inside edit fields, list boxes and memos, navigation is carried out with the usual arrow key commands.
