Re: [Evolution-hackers] creating new calendars, contact groups, and task groups

Hi Anna,

Currently, all of these things are configured using wizards. This approach is inappropriate, because in most cases there is very little information required to add a new group -- so that adding one using a wizard takes significantly more time (and mouse clicks) than is necessary. I propose that replace these wizards with a set of simple dialogs. Screenshots for each of them are included below:

A very nice change.


1. Add a New Calendar

(Note that the icon for the URL testing button is obviously wrong -- I picked what I had on hand.)

The "location" option menu contains two possibilities, which correspond to local and remote calendars: On This Computer, and On the Web. If the "On This Computer" item were selected, then the "URL" and "Refresh" widgets would be insensitive.

One point that I haven't been too clear on myself is the advantage of using insensitivity over simply hiding the widgets. Is there a HIG statement on this sort of thing? I think I lean to the side of: if it doesn't apply then don't show.

However, then you would have to deal with window resizing.

Obviously you have thought about it and I would be interested in your opinion.
