RE: Escape key closes commit dialog

In TortoiseCVS if you hit Escape and you have already entered anything in the Log Message field, it shows a dialog asking something like "Do you want to discard this Log Message ?" before closing the dialog. (If it is blank Escape will close the dialog unconditionally)

Perhaps it could be done like that. Perhaps with a configuration setting like "do you want to be prompted about losing partially completed log messages on selecting escape from the Commit dialog" so that those that want strict instant escapes at all times can get that.

Possibly,

Richard.

First: pressing escape always closes dialogs. Even today. It doesn't
close main windows but it always closes dialogs. And the commit dialog
is as the name says a dialog.

Second: While you want the escape key to NOT close the dialog, others
want the escape key to close any TSVN dialog immediately without any
confirmation or anything else even if it would mean getting corrupted
working copies:

So the behavior as it is now will stay for now. Sorry - can't do it
right for everyone.

Stefan
