Description

When terminating (or other action requiring confirmation) a large number of VMs (or a few vms with very long names), the sunstone confirmation dialog box can fill up, but does not auto-show the scrollbars or otherwise indicate to the user that more than the currently-displayed vms are being terminated (or acted upon).

Possible fixes include auto showing the scrollbars, or adding a count of number of vms to be acted upon, or adding text or continuation icon, etc.

B #4794: Add scroll hints to confirm dialogs

History

#1 Updated by Carlos Martín about 4 years ago

Hi,

The list of id-names should in fact have a scrollbar.
What browser are you using (version)? Could you share a screenshot?

#2 Updated by John Noss about 4 years ago

Hi, Yes, there is a scrollbar, however it doesn’t auto show - so the user doesn’t know it’s there unless you happen to mouse over the right part and scroll. Tested in firefox 48.0.1, safari 9.1.2, chrome 53.0.

attaching screenshots:

screenshot_1 is the view when the dialog box loads, you can see it is hard to tell that there are more names of vms hidden (the scrollbar does not show up by default)

screenshot_2 I took with a delayed screenshot, so that I could capture what it looks like when you have the mouse cursor in the window and are actively scrolling up or down - the scrollbar is visible

Hi,

This is actually how it works now, but Mac OS decides to hide all scrollbars until the user starts to scroll.

I've added a shadow to hint that the list can be scrolled, see attached screenshot.
