Description

Currently the Column Annotation and Context Annotation tabs are always in edit mode, so to speak. Any changes made to the UI are auto-saved when a different column is selected or a different tab is clicked. This can be:
-overkill (if you've not actually made any changes)
-confusing/annoying (if you didn't want to save the changes)
-complicated (on the implementation side)

An alternate mode could be that the fields are disabled until switching to "edit mode" at which point the editable fields become such. Exiting edit mode will save the changes made, while switching to another column or tab will prompt to save if still in edit mode, or do nothing if edit mode is disabled.

History

#1 Updated by ben leinfelder over 10 years ago

i've got the pages set up so that they can be enabled/disabled.
Now for the toggling and saving.

#2 Updated by ben leinfelder over 10 years ago

the toggle button is now in charge of issuing the save. not a full save-to-disk, but a save-for-when-you-navigate-away.

The toggle button with the mac L&F is not too snazzy, I almost want to change it to be a checkbox instead. Thoughts?
