Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 990377
RFE: Improve / replace the upload filename selector
Last modified: 2015-08-06 01:55:11 EDT
Description of problem:
If you give a user a line edit to enter a file path, don't give them:
- a dialog to select a file, they are expecting to type
- a browse button if you go with the line edit selector
It's not very usable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Projects->Select a Project->select a Version
2. Press Source Documents, Upload Document
3. Click on the Upload dialog line edit
A dialog appears
Nothing, I should be allowed to type here
There seems to be a horrid focus battle at play here too - WebDriver can happily enter the text a user cannot, but the text from the linedit is ignored anyway and the exception of bug990373 occurs.
Edit: scratch the additional info - it's a different exception!
This is the standard file upload element provided by the browser, so will differ a bit from browser to browser. Overriding the behaviour and style of this particluar element is somewhat hacky and is not straightforward, but would be nice to do if we find a stable and maintainable way to do so.
Switched to an RFE - make nice upload thingy
