Double-click to select on quoted string

  • Hi Opera, would be nice if you could implement a simple but very useful way of selecting a string on the string that is surrounded by single or double quotes.

    Here's the validation rules:
    1-if user double-click on a quote or double quotes char, the string between the quotes is selected
    2-a maximum length of 100 char is search for the end-quote
    3-only the quote is selected (as working now) if no end-quote found
    4-up to you if you want to select or omit the quotes in the selected string

    Here's a few examples:
    "this is an example"
    'here's another'
    "thanks in advance!!"

  • how hard can it be to implement this lil feature? I dont see any problemo except lack of will

  • Just because you requested the feature, doesn't mean that it will be implemented.

  • Keep in mind, your second example won't work. They would find the apostrophe and stop there. So when you ask how hard can it be - you already proved that.
