menu item hotkey without immediately enter?
hi, i not find any user option for assign hotkey to menu item which would only change focus, and user must manualy press enter... can be please this option be added? if not can someone please point me to part of src where i can disable it before compile? thanks Smile

btw: as novice with iPXE (before longtime PXELINUX user) i have more questions, is better create separated thread for each? or better make one thread with more "novice question" ? :-)

RE: menu item hotkey without immediately enter?
you can use hidden key to change menu default item

Code:
#!ipxe

:menu
menu
item a a itemA
item b b itemB

item -k a selecta
item -k b selectb
choose -d ${m} -k m
goto ${m} || goto menu${m}


:selecta
#prompt Aselect
set m a
goto menu

:selectb
#prompt Bselect
set m b
goto menu

:menua
prompt A
goto menu

:menub
prompt B
goto menu

RE: menu item hotkey without immediately enter?
many thanks, this workaround work, but i have many (~130) items(in main and sub and subsub/subsubsub/... menus) with hotkey, then if all change to double items menu + create for each item_select part, this make whole ipxe scripts little confusing for me :-)

i still hope someone point me to source part, i try 2 hours search&read .c/.h files where find "key" "shortcut" "menu" etc, try make some change, but without success, because sure one word/line for change disabling enter for hotkey i miss :-)
