#3884 new defect

items selected on drop-down controls not inserted into GRASS command

In a number of modules, when you select something from a drop down control with a mouse, it shows up in the control text box, but does not get inserted into the actual GRASS command. For the command to work, you have to either type the name of the item into the control or paste the text of the name of the item into the control (the latter is made more difficult because many controls do not recognize key shortcuts like cmd-x, cmd-c, and cmd-v at least on the Mac).

Here are some examples where this is a problem:

  • selecting image subgroup in multiple image processing modules (i.*)
  • selecting location and mapset for r.proj and v.proj

I'm hoping this is a generic problem with the control rather than having to find it in every module. I don't know if this is Mac specific or not, but suspect not. It's been a problem for some time and affects later GRASS versions too.
