Subject Re: [ACS4.5] GUI Question
Date Tue, 29 Jul 2014 01:49:05 GMT
Just to add a bit more detail:

Seif is looking to create a new dialog that can utilize this control. One
could access this new dialog - perhaps - by clicking on a new button to the
right of the Storage Tags text field (ex. in the Add Primary Storage
dialog). This new dialog would utilize the new control to show the admin
all existing storage tags, allow for tags to be selected, and provide hints
when a user types in a new tag. When this dialog is OKed, the storage tags
can be listed in a comma-separated fashion in the, say, Add Primary Storage
dialog. This way the admin doesn't have to guess at storage tags when
entering them in a manual fashion.
