In our application there is a form to specify command line arguments to run an EXE with. We also want to provide some keywords that the user can use, now we put them in a listview. Currently, it looked like this:
When the user double click on an item in the listview, it will be added to the current caret position in the textbox. The text can really span a few lines, that's why the text box is quite big.
Is there a better way to have this functionality? The problem with current design:
- It looks weird because the listbox is not as wide as the textbox
- It takes a lot of vertical space (listbox + textbox)
- The two controls are quite separated vertically, due to the height of the textbox.
How can this be improved?
