The pop up django form in Horizon

asked 2012-10-05 06:38:14 -0600


I've been working with Horizon for a while, it's pretty neat. However one thing has been bothering me, the pop up django form. If I accidentally click outside of the form, the form disappears. Sometimes it happens after I have filled in some edit boxes, and because of the accident click, all data is lost.

My question is would it be better to lock the pop up window until someone clicks the submit button or the cancel button? IMHO it will not lose any flexibility, but enhances stability to Horizon.

Thanks, Xin

We seem to go back and forth on this one... It IS nice to close it by clicking outside out the dialog when you want to close it, but, as you said, it makes it REALLY aggravating when you have a form filled out and didn't mean/want to close it.

Perhaps just file a ticket and we can address this so that you have to click close/cancel to close the dialog.
