Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 526488
virt-manager's 'Details' dialog has a poorly placed 'Remove' button
Last modified: 2009-12-03 18:52:22 EST
Description of problem:
In the Details screen of virt-manager, the 'Remove' button is placed where GNOME dialogs put their 'Close' button. Not only that, but it doesn't prompt for confirmation. This has now caused me to delete 3 disk images!
For an example of why this button needs to be moved, look at the following dialogs on a F-11 system:
These were the first 3 I chose to compare with, and they all have their Close button at the bottom right. I expect they're all the same. The result is that I am now programmed to click on the button at the bottom right when I am no longer interested in the current window.
The lack of a confirmation dialog when deleting data is a separate bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the Details pane of a virtual machine window
2. Select Disk, NIC, Mouse, Display, Serial or Video (and probably much more)
3. Click the button at the bottom right of the Window
Something is deleted
The current window is closed
Yeah, I don't think that's a great place for the button, either - don't have any better suggestions though :)
Upstream has moved the button location to the left, since now we always show the 'Apply' button. Not that much better, but coupled with a confirmation for the remove button it should be all good.
This should be fixed in virt-manager-0.8.1-1.fc13 which will be in the next rawhide compose.
