#10383 closed defect (fixed)

Browse has no "busy" indication

Reported by: erikos Owned by: erikos
Priority: normal Milestone: 10.1.3
Component: browse-activity Version: Development build as of this date
Keywords: Cc: greenfeld, sridhar
Blocked By: Blocking:
Deployments affected: Action Needed: no action
Verified: no

Description

Browse right now has a progress bar it displays once download is progressing. Before the progress bar appears there can be a significant lag, during which the user wonders "did I click on that link/button or not?".

On 0.82 the cursor changed when busy to have a "rotating arrow" animation. This is gone on 0.84.

I filed a new ticket to fix that as well in F14 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=640581

Excellent. And with that RPM, do we get swirling arrow automatically in Browse, or do we need additional changes in Browse to match?

Shipping those rpms is enough :) No additional changes needed in Browse.

Verified in 10.1.3 os351 that Browse has a busy cursor which appears when the cursor is pointed over the main area of the browser window (not the top menus) and the browser is still rendering or waiting for something.

The busy cursor does not however appear if a download is in progress. Walter Bender says this is because the browser isn't technically busy as downloads are done in the background. Download progress for downloads initiated from Browse can be monitored from the Journal view in Sugar.

I will file a Sugar Labs enhancement request to show some sort of download-in-progress indication in the Browse activity as well.

Yes I guess that is expected. Should be the same in previous builds.

Correct.

Using the cursor for that would not be the right choice. Firefox has an indication in the panel at the bottom. One could probably solve it as well with an animation indicating that it is going into the Journal. But yeah, future...:)
