I am currently developing an addon and I am trying to figure out how to have NVDA jump to another NVDA object.
Essentially I am wanting for when the user presses NVDA + E, the current focused object’s siblings are searched and the first one that is editable text is focused. Here is my code:
@script(gesture = 'kb:NVDA+e')
def script_findEditor(self, gesture):
# get the first sibling of focused object
obj = api.getFocusObject().simpleParent.simpleFirstChild
while obj is not None:
if obj.role is controlTypes.ROLE_EDITABLETEXT:
obj = obj.simpleNext
ui.message('couldnt find editor.')
I am developing this for use in IntelliJ which uses Java Access Bridge GUI. It does not work as expected, if the object doesn’t have a editor sibling it correctly outputs the message, but if it does, it doesn’t output the message and nothing happens.
Some help in understanding why it might not be working is greatly appreciated.
