Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-549) notification.confirm UX is missaligned
Date Thu, 19 Apr 2012 22:24:40 GMT


Joe Bowser commented on CB-549:

We don't choose where the choices go, we let Android decide that.  If you wish to target the
latest version of Android (and you don't care about the menu changes), you can add this to
your Android Manifest:

<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="5" android:targetSdkVersion="15"/>

However, please note that this will break any menu plugin or menu setup you're currently using,
since Honeycomb and later use ActionBar style menus.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Callback
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Android
>    Affects Versions: 1.6.1
>         Environment: Android 3.0 and above
> Android 2.3 and below
>            Reporter: Trevor N. Suarez
>            Assignee: Joe Bowser
>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: android, confirm, ios, notification, ux
>             Fix For: 1.7.0
>         Attachments: Android Confirm.jpg, iOS Confirm.jpg
> The notification.confirm() function places the options in the wrong order.
> iOS and Android 3.0+ should always use the dismissive action on the left and the confirming
action on the right. Android 2.3 and below used the UX paradigm of having those orders reversed.
> Right now, if one were to set the buttons as 'No,Yes', then iOS would show the correct
order, but Android 3.0+ has the buttons backwards, as the confirmation API uses the older
Android 2.3 and below style. However, either way the Android implementation is backwards.
The Android 2.3 button order should NOT match up with iOS like it currently is. And the Android
3.0+ order should be the same as iOS.
> "As a rule, the dismissive action of a dialog is always on the left whereas the affirmative
actions are on the right."
