Not a big thing...

Post by Johnincal » Sat Mar 10, 2007 2:45 am

Hey tzuk,

This is not a big deal, but when the "Welcome Message" window is displayed, it cannot be closed by clicking the red "X" in the corner. Your only option is to click the "Learn More" box on the first one and then the "OK" on the second.

Neither one can be closed by the "X".

Actually this is intentional behavior, so while it is debatable whether or not this is good user interface design, it isn't, strictly-speaking, a bug. :)

Tzuk, your argumentation is correct from a GUI design and style guide view. But Johnincal is right as well. Wizards which cannot be cancelled are not good style programming neither. There always should be a CANCEL button which allows to abort the Wizard at any time. Especially if it is just a LEARN wizard. You can just use the default values for configuration if somebody CANCELS the wizard.

BTW, you do a grat job here Tzuk. We very appreciate that.
Regards,
Oliver

Thanks. I didn't want to discuss the specific issue because I plan to re-write Sandboxie Control entirely, soon I hope.
