Description

One should be able to use the Doomsday UI with only the keyboard or a game controller.

Anticipated features:
  • flag for making widgets focusable
  • visual focus indicator (appears when keyboard-navigating), cf. tutorial focus rectangle
  • when using just the mouse, the focus indicator appears briefly but fades right away
  • Tab / Shift-Tab to navigate focusable widgets as a cycle
  • Esc to close all popups (including dialogs), remove focus from edit widgets
  • Enter/Space to activate focused widget
  • arrow keys to navigate by view position (cannot get out of dialogs, though)

Tab/Shift-Tab has been implemented. They rely on the widget tree structure to find the next/previous focusable widget. Also, Enter/Space can be used to press buttons.
