Description

After edits a data package, a user click the "save" button and a destination selection dialog will show up. The user can choose which one, local or network to save. Then the user click save button, the docid collision dialog may show up. If the user click the "okay" button in the docid collision dialog, the "save destination" dialog will show up again and disappears when the save process is done. It is very confuse when the dialog come back again.

History

Do you mean that the destination selection window remains visible during the save?

#2 Updated by Jing Tao almost 8 years ago

Yes.

If there is no id collision window disrupting it, it is fine that the destination selection window remains visibile. But it is confusing that the destination selection window disappears when the id collision window shows up, then it comes back when the id collision windows disappears.

#3 Updated by ben leinfelder almost 8 years ago

Isn't it just that the collision window is on top of the save dialog? It doesn't really "go away" it is just hidden while the modal id collision window is displayed.

#4 Updated by Jing Tao almost 8 years ago

Yes, I believe the collision windows is on the top of the save dialog. But it covers it and make users think the save dialog disappears.

#5 Updated by ben leinfelder almost 8 years ago

I think it is good to have the save dialog showing while we wait for the save to complete rather than throwing away the window and making it look like Morpho is ready for user input. Perhaps we should add a progress monitor or a flapping butterfly to indicate that something is "happening"?

#6 Updated by ben leinfelder almost 8 years ago

Going to leave this as is. The collision window is currently not being display (see related bug #5826) and we don't expect many collisions now that we are using UUIDs...
