Using the keyboard

Learn how the keyboard control works in bamboolib

When working with bamboolib, you need to know 4 things:

  1. Navigate between input fields with Tab (to next input) and Shift+Tab (to previous input)

  2. Inside a dropdown, navigate through the option list with Arrow up / Arrow down

  3. Select elements inside of a dropdown with Enter

  4. Push a button and toggle a checkbox with Space

Additional shortcuts for Pros:

  • Inside dropdowns, you can type to filter the options. If you started typing, you can auto-complete the current suggestion with Tab

  • Inside a single-select dropdown, you can select an element and move on to next input field with Tab (instead of hitting Enter and then Tab). This doesn’t work in multi-select dropdowns, because you might want to select another value.

  • Inside a text box, you can hit Enter to execute the transformation instead of navigating down to the Execute button

See the Keyboard reference for a full list of all keyboard shortcuts.
