context - Delete Form dialog version 528

Postby JvNoort » Sun Sep 11, 2011 5:00 pm

Hello,

On context - deleteform in vs. 528:
Maybe it's just me but i find it irritating that if i want to delete a form i expect info before the actual delete.

But this isn't the case : Its just ""Do you want to delete the form?"
That is not sensible to me! :evil:

I would expect: "Do you really want to delete form: "frmName so and So" ?
So no one get's mixed up on which form is clicked.

Regards, Jan

While we are on the topic of UX. Can the dialogs also have proper named buttons?
The caption 'OK' doesn't say much. A more appropriate caption would be 'Delete' or even better 'Delete Form'.

i am not convinced about renaming the buttons
Because that is something eclipse by itself also doesn't do
just click in the navigator on a file and say delete:
Then you also get the ok and cancel buttons with the question to confirm the delete of file 'x' (naming the file is better yes)

And 2 wrongs make a right ? ;)

:twisted: You could also use a dialog with: 'Cancel' and 'Don't Cancel'.
Because the dialog tekst already explained what it does, right ? :twisted:

Just trying to make a point ;)
The button caption matters a lot.

The user interface should just be consistent, throughout the app, so it should do what eclipse does. Also I think that ok,cancel (or yes,no) is common.

If you where the system and you ask me "should I delete form X?" Then I would answer 'ok' or 'yes'. I wouldn't answer 'delete'
