Dashboard - Message Portlet: Edit mode is overly-aggressive in disallowing blank fields.
Last modified: 2011-05-23 21:11:56 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to edit a field in in the Message portlet, the GUI gets grumpy if you try to delete all the content in order to replace it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a Message portlet to your dashboard
2. Click the "edit" button and enter the value "foobar" in the field; save.
3. After returning to dashboard view, click the edit button again.
4. Attempt to backspace over the text you've entered, or Ctrl-X the whole thing.
UI is validating before you've actually submitted anything, and thus won't let you leave that field blank. You cannot simply remove the text before putting something else in the box- this is rejected.
Something a bit more user-friendly.
smartgwt seems to have this working now
Bookkeeping - closing bug - fixed in recent release.
