Hi XFormers,

I'd like to know what the current status of "file selector double-click"
bug is? There were a couple of messages regarding this in May, starting
with a patch proposed by Mike Heffner, but the discussion that followed
raised some doubts. It ended with following message from Mike: 

> However, we still have the same problem that the callback is never getting
> a ButtonPress event. ;-(
> This weekend I'll try rewriting the file selector's callback using the
> fl_set_browser_dblclick_callback(). It seems that might be a much easier

Mike, did you try the rewrite?

If no, is Mike's patch included in any (CVS maybe) version of code?

I have some heavily-used XForms apps dating back to ver. 0.88 and I'd
like very much to rebuild them with 1.0 (also because of problems with
static libraries under RedHat 9) but all users here are quite used to
double-clicking in file selector. The problems started already in 0.89
and, sadly, have propagated into 1.0.

regards, Michal.
