Description

This ticket was to discuss if the simple InputDialog is the right way to initialise new entities from within the BulkEditor.

The Input Dialog makes sense for 'User' and 'Group' entities, but not for the others, namely:

  • Authors and Author Teams

  • Reference

  • Name

  • Taxon or Synonym

===

Result of discussion:

  • for all classes it is not needed. Instead a pop-up detail element (as usual for creating new entities) should be shown.
  • exception: taxon names, as they are usually parsed. But here the prior selection of the rank should be removed (instead we may check the rank afterwards if it is not parsable or just leave the rank not parsable warning as it automatically comes)

History

#1 Updated by Andreas Müller over 4 years ago

In general the new command in the bulk editor should do the same as the File->New->XXX command. The later already now opens a wizards, not InputDialog.

However, before switching to the wizard solution we need to test the wizards intensively as e.g. the new Name wizard currently does not allow saving and the new taxon dialog does not allow creating orphaned taxa, synonyms or misapplied names.
