Subject [jira] Resolved: (DIRSTUDIO-234) Greyed out menu items should have a tool tip explaining *why* they're greyed out
Date Sun, 08 Feb 2009 21:14:59 GMT


Stefan Seelmann resolved DIRSTUDIO-234.

    Resolution: Fixed

There seems to be no easy way to have tooltips for disabled menu items (it is necessary to
draw them yourself). 

The following actions are now always enabled:
- New Attribute/Value
- Edit Value
- Delete Entry/Attribute/Value

If an action makes no sense a warning message pops up, these situations are:
- Add another value to single-valued attriubte
- Add attribute that is not allowed according to the object classes
- Add, modify or delete a read-only attributes
- Delete the RDN attribute
- Delete a mandatory attribute
- Delete a object class and not all attributes are included in the remaining object classes

What is missing now is an option to avoid these warning popups, see DIRSTUDIO-459.

to be done to make it active (and it needs to be *useful* information, not just "it doesn't
apply" or "you're not allowed to do that now" --- it's obvious the *application* thinks that
because it's greyed out).  In this case, I did a search against our ldap server, found an
attribute that needed removing and did so.  Then I did another search.  This time the font
changed to italic, and when I go to delete an attribute, Delete is greyed out.  There is no
clue anywhere as to what's going on.  I searched in help for the ldap browser, and found very
