I'd like to propose an update for a warning pop-up, when you want to approve/decline a category.

You have a pop-up warning window asking: "Apply to all sub-sections?" and the 2 choices are : OK  --  Cancel

If I click on Cancel, or I close the window, it'll perform anyway the action, only on selected category and not sub-sections.

I propose to name them : YES -- NO -- Cancel (can we add a third button here?)

  1. Sorry, but we can't rename/add buttons, since they are defined by browser
    itself. We can change the message to say, that OK - does this, Cancel - does
    this.

  2. why should we need browser internal window to do this? jQuery ins't enough?
    :-)

  3. It's big step to change all dialog windows to jQuery and currently there is
    no jQuery extension, that will wait for user to press the button to continue
    related javascript execution.

    Consider following javascript code:
    if (confirm('confirm one?') {
      // some code

    }

  4. Hi guys,

    I agree with Alex here - we can update the wording here, but JQ will
    not work as replacement at least for now.

    Phil back to you now.

    DA

  5. Well, if you consider that the button will ONLY display the thickbox window,
    and the js is launched from this window? ;-)

    yes or no will do the correct JS, while cancel will just close the window
    ^-^ isn't that easy?

  6. I have reviewed the actual message in English and here is my suggested
    course of action:

    For now (without refactoring the messages) we simply add more
    explanation there, so instead of

    Apply to all Sub-sections - answers are OK and Cancel

    it will read

    Apply to selected and all sub-sections?
    Press "OK" if you want to apply this action on the selected section
    and it's sub-sections, press "Cancel" if you want to apply only on
    selected section.

    Waiting for your opinion.

    DA.

  7. and if it was a clic-error? I'm not joking, this happens, including
    clic-n-regret actions :D

    What do you think about my coding suggestion (moving js to context window)?

    Actually we have a mix of in-portal ajax messages (in design) + browser
    warning windows, which are not at all in the same "way of working": it
    breaks the system flow, for example giving impossility to cancel an
    action...

  8. If system before doing any action specially asks user to confirm that in a
    new window, then this should be something important. If user can't read
    messages in new windows and clicks "OK"/"Yes" in each new window it sees,
    then who has the problem: system that asks twice or user, who can't read :)

  9. yes, but... you can't "cancel" your action in this window ;-) ok anyway this
    is not a destructive action at least !

  10. Let's run the working by Ilya - just to make sure it's grammatically
    correct.

    Ilya would you please check whether it's good:

    ========
    Apply to selected and all sub-sections?
    Press "OK" if you want to apply this action on the selected section
    and it's sub-sections, press "Cancel" if you want to apply only on
    selected section.
    ========

    DA.
