|Subject:||Re: [xwiki-devs] [Discussion] New location of the "Add" menu in the new Flamingo skin|
|From:||Guillaume Lerouge (guil...@xwiki.com)|
|Date:||Oct 1, 2014 1:08:36 am|
after discussing with Vincent this morning we came to a suggestion that would fix my issue with the current location of the add button. The idea would be to move the search bar to the left of the menu, and put the "Add" button in its place.
Crude image explanation here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hrxlj6n6pztigic/AddButton-Search.png
This way the "Add" button is back in a global menu, not in a menu that is contextual to the page, yet it stays very visible. In addition to this, since "Create wiki" is visible only to authorized users, it's not too much in the way. Last item: this solves the issue of having the "Edit" and "More actions" buttons separated from one another.

The new location of the Add menu in Flamingo is

More generally speaking, this is true for a lot of

I guess you like the files live table from the File Manager
. Would be interesting to have such a toolbar (with support for custom buttons) before the live table don't you think?
IMO the toolbar's functionality is already covered by the

I'm not sure this is the same use case. I can see at least 3 reasons why:
IMO it's exactly the same use case, the only difference is that the Actions column was used as an intermediate solution because we didn't had bulk actions in livetable (the ability to make multiple entity selection (checkbox) - that's why we duplicate the entries on each row).
Great, this means that we agree on the fact that the "Actions" column should be replaced by a "Select" column with checkboxes in it, and also that Marius' horizontal livetable toolbar should be expanded to be used in a generic fashion by all livetables :-)
Not completely replaced because not all operations/actions can be performed in bulk fashion. Take the 'edit' action and notice that it is a single element action compared to 'delete'.
A different situation exists for the 'rename' action since it is more of a single element action, but can be presented as a bulk action as well if you provide some kind of renaming template like '<prefix>_<number>'.
In other words, both the bulk operations toolbar and the actions column have their right place in the livetable IMO and having a checkbox column like Marius did for the FM livetable looks like the right way to go.
1/ The "create" button would generate a new entry, whereas the "actions" column is for actions that are related to individual entries that already exist 2/ The "actions" column can be removed by the livetable creator 3/ The toolbar would also be useful to handle bulk actions on pages
"delete selected entries" (as in the file manager)
Yes and yes :-)
Basically the button would let the user create a new item of

ad-hoc fashion, so it would be great to have a generic
