Description bettina.haberer 2007-03-01 09:47:11 UTC
Doubleclick an extension e.g. in the Windows Explorer: First the progress bar is
shown, before the message box appears asking, if you want to install it. 
The right order of actions is, to ask the user first, and, when he has confirmed
the installation by clicking on the 'OK' button, to bring up the progress bar,
which indicates the started action.

Target set.

Comment 3 joachim.lingner 2007-05-10 14:39:18 UTC
Retargeted to 2.4
Comment 4 bettina.haberer 2007-05-10 14:54:01 UTC
The user cannot understand what is happending, when the progress bar becomes
visible first, before showing a message. Why was the target reset to 2.4? The
time until 2.4 is too long, to keep that bug in the product. We should fix it

Retargeting to 3.0
Comment 7 joachim.lingner 2008-02-14 08:37:23 UTC
jl->bh: I believe this issue is obsolete, because the progress bar is shown
within the Extension Manager's dialog. Am I right?
Comment 8 bettina.haberer 2008-02-14 13:23:18 UTC
We have to assure, that in the described case the progress bar in the upcoming
Extension Manager starts not earlier, before the message box had appeared. So 
1. the extension manager comes up, the progress bar within this dialog does not
2. the message box appears. And if the user does not cancel the message, then
3. the progress bar starts running.
Comment 9 joachim.lingner 2008-02-14 14:44:34 UTC
jl->bh: Ok, what about the case where the user add a URL in the file dialog.
Then the Extension Manager starts downloading the extension which may take a
LONG time. This is already indicated by the progressbar. Only when it is
downloaded and unzipped can the EM find out  if it needs to display the message box.

I think that it is absolutely ok to show the progress bar. The problem we had
with the dialogs before 3.0 was that there where three dialogs shown. Now there
are only the EM dialog and the message box. Nowbody will complain about the
progressbar. When the user cancels the installation than the progressbar is gone

Or you need to have the progressbar exactly indicating what it is doing right
now: downloading, extracting, ...

So I still see this issue is obsolete unless you want the progress bar show
those additional information.

Invalid because of new GUI.
