Description Matt Reid 2012-08-21 11:07:33 EDT
Description of problem:

We don't recognize hitting enter when users are entering credentials in subscription-manager, but do in our Classic tooling.

Registering through rhn_register register dialog:
1. User fills out username
2. fills out password
3. presses enter, dialog advances to next screen

Registering through subscription-manager register dialog:
1. User fills out username
2. fills out password
3. presses enter, waits for something to happen, nothing happens
4. presses tab 4 times to navigate to register button
5. presses enter

It would be nice to be consistent across these tools and allow them to hit enter after entering their credentials if they don't want to change anything else (this would skip over setting System Name & opting out of auto-subscribe in subscription-manager).

    850430: Pressing Enter in the password entry now activates registration.

    By setting the "Can Default" and "Has Default" properties on the
    register button and by setting the "Activates Default" property
    on the password entry field, we can make pressing Enter in the
    password entry field automatically begin the registration process.

Available in subscription-manager-1.1.6-1+

Verifying Version...
[root@jsefler-6 ~]# rpm -q subscription-manager-gui

The new enter key bindings while the focus is on the password field works great.
This function has been desired for a looooong time.  Thanks.

Note: This same binding does NOT apply in firstboot.
