Re: SystemToast with button JIRA change

[ Edited ]

Come one Ekke stop trying to wriggle out. Smiley Happy

 

Your blog clearly states you thought it was going to time out, no mention is made of having to tap outside the Toast within the blog entry.

 

If you are in a ListView with a full set of items and show a toast like this, the ListItem will trigger (i.e. not intended work flow), come on now, honestly do you not think this behaviour can be improved?

 

Yes all of these things can be worked around but it's better to fix at source.

 

[Edit] Nice work on the conference app BTW.

 

[Edit 2] And if that item selected to timeout the toast happens to be the one you are deleting and you haven't got your thread mutexs and code protected it's going to crash!

Re: SystemToast with button JIRA change

there's no easy answer

 

on a keyboard device where UNDO is important,

if the user knows the keys to follow his workflow

and he sees the toast and types the next action

then I'm canceling the toast so it disappears immediately

 

but if nothing happens, the toast should be there to be sure the user knows about

 

what I don't like: if user then does anything else then clicking the UNDO -

the Toast should immediately disappear and not after some time -

that's the reason I cancel the Toast in these scenarios

 

but this doesn't work always

Re: SystemToast with button JIRA change

LOL, okay perhaps I'll put in a ticket just saying, "Please fix Toast with buttons". ;-)

Re: SystemToast with button JIRA change

I spent some time deliberating on whether to enter a ticket and in the end decided to go ahead.

 

Whatever way you look at it, it is duplicating behaviour of another UI element (the dialog) and is a poor design choice better rectified at the OS level rather than worked around or ignored by developers.
