Delphi: Alt+Down Arrow is the keyboard shortcut for ellipsis buttons

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/09/01

Thanks Primož Gabrijelčič for reminding me on Stack Overflow that Alt + Down opens the dialogs behind ellipsis buttons in the Delphi IDE.

It’s the CUA and Windows short-cut to open drop-down lists (comboboxes) and for opening drop-down list for a property in the object inspector, but I never realised also would work for these ellipsis buttons.

This was my original stack-overflow question: Is there a keyboard shortcut for the ellipsis buttons of the Project Options in the Delphi IDE?

The Project Options in the Delphi IDE has a few option (like the Search Path) each with an ellipsis button (the one on the right having only three dots ... in the image below) to pop-up a dialog.

What keyboard shortcut activates that button?

Mercurial/Hg; syntax/tips for amend commit adding/reming files to latest (non-pushed) commit

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/09/01

Sometimes your latest commit isn’t what you intended. Fixing can be done, but isn’t always obvious hence these links:

Remove a new file from a commit:

cp somefile.txt somefile.txt.bak
hg forget somefile.txt
hg commit --amend

If the file was new (i.e. you had used hg add).

If that file already existed try:

cp somefile.txt somefile.txt.bak
hg revert somefile.txt --rev .~1
hg commit --amend
cp somefile.txt.bak somefile.txt
