we are using ONE 4.8 and 4.10.2.

It could be interesting to automatically focus the Search box to permit automatic searching items when typing on keyboard, without moving the mouse.

Some views may have better default, like the Create Virtual Machine in cloud view, the Virtual Machine Name should be the default one.

For the Create Virtual Machine, if the Virtual Machine Name is the default focus, I want to be able:

  • to quickly move to the Search box
  • Switch between System, VDC and Saved with the mouse focus the Search box

I think the Search box should be the next tabulation after Virtual Machine Name, then each Template in turn, a use case for example:

  1. Click on the [+] to create a new VM
  2. Type the VM name
  3. Hit Tabulation
  4. Search for template name
  5. Hit Tabulation until I reach the wanted Template (the previous step narrow the list to avoid too much typing)
  6. Hit Enter to select the template
