Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 491718
UI review: Close/Cancel
Last modified: 2010-03-23 06:25:23 EDT
The update viewer still shows the dreaded Close+Cancel button combination while the transaction is running. What Jon proposed was to add a "Quit" button instead of "Close", and disallow closing the window while the transaction is running.
Relatedly, as long as we do allow closing the window, clicking on the running transaction in the statusicon menu should bring the update viewer window back, instead of a different progress dialog.
Hmm, I don't think preventing close when the transaction is running is a good idea, unless it cancels the transaction. And then clicking [x] when the transaction is non-cancellable would be ignored, which isn't usual behaviour IMO. What about this:
getting update lists:
[Help] [Cancel (greyed out)]
So in this case we only show either the cancel button _or_ the close button. If you press cancel, then the cancel button disappears, and the close button appears in it's place. Or something like that.
If the [x] is pressed when the transaction is active, then we should just hide the window, and then only reactivate if libunique pokes us that another instance is being started. That solves the window problem.
Other ideas welcome.

bugfix: if the new update viewer is running in a transaction when it's closed, just hide the window and present it if run again
(now all I have to do is connect up the statusicon...)
Created attachment 339756 [details]
This is probably still work in progress but I want to note that the current version has a strange combination of buttons while downloading: [Quit] and [Install Updates]
Pressing the latter does not seem to do anything useful.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
