Description Christopher Aillon 2006-01-17 14:48:13 EST
If the passwords do not match, the user should be unable to click "Next" (the
button is desensitized).  The "Enter password" text can change to "Re-enter the
password" or something similar to let the user know that the passwords don't yet

Hooray for flip-flopping.

This screen used to work like that, but it was considered less discoverable for
how to get the next button to sensitize than to just let you try to click next
and then be told what the problem was.
Comment 2 Christopher Aillon 2006-01-18 13:22:55 EST
The idea is that directly underneath the two pw entry boxes, you'd have
italicized or bold text, maybe a different color or a combination of some or all
of the above which says "The two passwords do not match.  Please enter identical
passwords to proceed" or some better text.  Re-opening and CC'ing bclark and jrb
as I remember this being for HIG stuff, but can't seem to find where.

password entry example

You can see here where the 'Text telling you what to do next' is.

This text would say:
[Nothing] - when fields are empty
'Password Not Long Enough' - until password is long enough
'Please confirm password' - when password is long enough
'Passwords do not match' - until confirm password matches

Until this is all done the [Next] button should be disabled.
