    Default The F5 key

    Now I like the F5 key as much as the next man. But now my users want me to refresh the data in my app with the F5 key

    I object to this new fangled webb thing dictating to the more mature desktop design. The tail is wagging the dog, mark my words

    Hope they are not using my Macbook then as all they'll accomplish is jiggling their screen brightness.

    Your app should obviously auto-update.

    I once had a director of IT ask me to rewrite Lotus Notes so that unread emails were not highlighted red as this was too aggressive a color.
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    You can also use F6/Shift-F6 to move focus to the next/previous frame.

    Well, you could on Netscape Navigator, which IIRC was where the "F5 for refresh" thing started back in the mid-90s.

    That mid-90s is "new fangled" to EO is probably the biggest concern to his client...

    Now, EO2, don't get ahead of yourself. EO1 is still mastering the Shift key yet.
