Reading and in particular "All operations could be done with either the mouse or the keyboard;", I checked IDLE's dialogs.

The Windows dialogs accessed as common dialogs work correctly.  I will assume true for other OSes until told otherwise.

The new Query widget recogizes <Return> for [Ok] but not <Escape> for [Cancel].  My omission, easily corrected.

Search boxes cannot set options with keys.  Notepad++ can.

The Options dialog has no key equivalents.

Issue #27620: Escape key closes Query box as cancelled.
msg271331 - (view) Author: Terry J. Reedy (terry.reedy) * (Python committer) Date: 2016-07-26 06:35
#27621 is about <Return> invoking [Ok] even when the focus is on [Cancel].

I agree that Esc should always cancel regardless of where the focus is.

Issue #27620: Make htest box respond to <Return> and <Escape>.

ConfigDialgo.__init__ has commented out key bindings for the buttons, including Esc for [Cancel].  We should establish 'IDLE Dialog Conventions', document (add to README.txt?), and follow consistently.
#27621 is about polishing Query box behavior.  It should be generalized to other boxes.
