Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1268060
s-m-gui register dialog should have a Close button. Again. Really.
Last modified: 2015-11-19 06:51:10 EST
Description of problem:
There is no on screen way to close the registergui dialog in subscription-manager-gui now since 'back' replaced 'cancel' and the dialog type means no wm 'x' close button.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Open 'Register' or 'Auto Attach' dialog.
Try to close it.
No obvious way (esc/alt-f4/wm right click->close still work)
A cancel button. We all love cancel buttons.
We should add 5 or 6 of them.
Don't do that. Just one please.
upstream pr at https://github.com/candlepin/subscription-manager/pull/1314
Use a Close button instead of Cancel as we are closing the window and not reversing changes.
Proposing as a blocker for rhel-7.2.0 to reinstate the Cancel/Close button that is already familiar to users of subscription-manager-gui from the prior rhel-7.1.0 release.
All the subdialogs of the registration process now have a Close button on the far left. I tried registering a system and at each point clicked the Close button (even if there was a progress slider). At each point the Close button would close out of the Register dialog.
The actual registration was not prevented from occurring however. For example, after entering the username and password and clicking next, even though there is a progress slider while the system tries to register, if the user clicks Close at this point all it does is close the dialog. The user will see that the system actually does register (though it will not auto-attach).
However, this more closely reflects the definition of close. It does not cancel the registration process, nor does it bring the user back to a previous stage of the Registration process.
Attached are the various steps during registration where the Close button is visible. The register-with-close-after-user-pw.png shows what the user will see if at some point after entering the username and password and hitting next, on the following dialog the Close button is clicked. It shows that the system is actually registered.
