One click for checking out selected forms Hot

by Phil Bustin on February 02, 2017

When adding a field to custom forms in the Data Definition > Forms > + Add to Forms function, I'm pretty certain that multiple clicks of the OK button in the check out dialog box, with no real signal to the user to do so, can be improved upon. 

  • In 11.1, when using the Data Definition > Forms > + Add to Forms function, after the desired forms are selected, a check-out dialog box appears.  Upon clicking OK, the box appears to remain in place, with no change in appearance (perhaps it blinks for a fraction of a second), and no indication to the user of what to do next.  The user then has to click OK once for every form selected.  Surely, the software can be modified so that there is one click for checking out the selected forms, the same as though the user were doing this manually.

  • Actually, upon re-examination, in 11.1 (as opposed to 10..1.5.1), the dialog box does re-appear each time, in a different position each time, indicating that the user must click OK again.
