[RCD] delay when deleting messages
2010-11-01 19:22:23 GMT
Comment/question for you all.
Right now I’ve observed the following behavior. Let me know if this is an accurate representation of how it works. When deleting a message in RC the selected message(s) gets removed from the list without an updating indicator but the system is still deleting the message and the message list is refreshed after that. This action can take a few seconds at times. Is this true?
If so, I would like to comment that this gives the false impression that the moment the message disappears from the list, it’s deleted and the list or the rest of the interface is ready to be used. Often times I find myself deleting messages and then selecting a new message to be deleted, causing my previous action to fail. It’s really bothersome, specially as there’s no real way of knowing when I can use the list again, making me take my chances. I’ve since started to look at the scrollbar in my message list to see when it redraws to know when I can move on to my next action.
Is there a way to provide additional feedback to the user by showing a “deleting messages…” dialog or something? Or better yet, allow the process to run in the background without having to wait first, so this is not needed in the first place?
Thank you all and keep up the good work!!
