Description nicolas 2003-09-08 11:04:14 UTC

ListView and IconView miss an easy way to go back 
to parent node once you have entered its 
children. For the moment it seems the only way 
back is hitting backspace.

A nice feauture would be to have some sort 
of "come back to parent node" icon with ".." 
associated text like in Windows' explorer for 

Yours respectfully.

Comment 2 Antonin Nebuzelsky 2008-02-07 16:02:23 UTC
Reassigning to new module owner Tomas Holy.
Comment 3 Jaroslav Tulach 2010-04-02 16:25:37 UTC
".." is nice idea. Anyone wants to implement it?

JAR file with the change for those who want to test it

If you want to test the above JAR, don't forget to not only replace existing JAR, but also start with empty userdir. Otherwise the content of the previous JAR may be cached...
