Re: [PATCH] filechooser: restore pre-3.16 type-ahead-find with setting (off by default)

Hi Thomas;

thanks for the patch.

GTK tracks patches on Bugzilla, not on the mailing list; you should
open a new issue at:


and attach your patch there, for review and discussion. You can also
send an email to gtk-devel-list pointing at the bug you opened, if you
want to ensure that more people are aware of it.

As for the type-ahead find: GTK+ 3.18 will have a better keyboard
handling, which will go into search mode as soon as you type
something; the search mode will also list the files that match the
query starting from the current directory. This improves the behaviour
of the file chooser in 3.16, to the point where type-ahead find should
not be necessary.
