[TSVN] Suggestion: Repo Browser - "expand all children"

From: Stefan Hoffmeister <google.groups_at_arcor.de>

the repository browser essentially is a tree of directories. By default, child in this tree is collapsed - but more often than not, repository browsing requires expanding of child items.


Implement UI functionality in the repository browser that allows users to recursively expand (and collapse) all children beginning from a to-be-selected parent item.

I see two ways how this could be implemented:

1.) Add context menu entries "Expand all directories" and "Collapse all directories".

Problem: This adds even more context menu entries.

2.) Add keyboard accelerators, e.g. the "+" key recursively expands all child items underneath the currently selected item; the "-" key recursively collapses all child items.

Problem: Users would have to read the documentation to find this feature.

Best regards
