Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-1506) UI : UI should be able to ignore same multiple subsequent message boxes
Date Tue, 05 Mar 2013 00:51:13 GMT
Parth Jagirdar created CLOUDSTACK-1506:
------------------------------------------

             Summary: UI : UI should be able to ignore same multiple subsequent message boxes
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-1506
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-1506
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: UI
         Environment: NA
            Reporter: Parth Jagirdar
            Priority: Minor


Currently in UI if an, 
Action X has an associated message Y. For example say X is changing a global variable and
Y can be message that prompts user to restart the Management Server.

If user changes 3 global variables he will be presented with 3 message boxes; all displaying
same message !

See attached screen.


Proposal ::

Approach (Different than what we have in place now) is to have only one “Save” button
for group of actions that produce same message

Now 2 common Scenarios::

Upon clicking “Save” button :: User changes gets realized and relevant message box is
presented. Due to fact that each web page has similar actions and thus have similar messages
this makes life very easy. (Multiple global variables changed and only one box presented requesting
to restart MS)

Upon navigating away without clicking Save :: Present a warning and if accepted, discard changes
and continue with requested navigation; else ignore navigation request and present user the
same page and wait for user to click "Save" button or to perform another action. (Repeat till
either Save is clicked or user accepts warning)


Current implementation:: We can see that small green “correct/right” ticker (Screen: ticker)
next to global variable input box as the Save button. Clicking which our changes gets realized
message pops up.

But the problem with our current approach is of association.

We have associated each message with each action. If we associate set of actions that produce
the same message; say the whole table that contains Global Variables and associate only one
Save (And in turn which results into associating only one message) with it then we can achieve
what I am trying to propose here.


I believe this is most common approach in UI based tools.

Suggestions / Inputs?
