Re: UI line item edit checkbox requires double click

I'd report it as usability bug. Been a very long time since I did UX studies, but I think they call that the Gulf of evaluation. You expect an action to do something but the result is different. A checkbox is a standard UI component and expected to behave in a certain way, and if it doesn't, it's a bug. Check boxes are single click in all other applications.

Besides the current behavior is pointless.

You can use many2many behavior when we selecting the routing on product.

Or if it not fit, I think you must modify the javascript on it.



Thank You.

Subject: UI line item edit checkbox requires double click



A client of mine wants to be able to edit a list produced by a wizard and check a box next to line items that apply.

The problem is that you have to click the line to make it editable, then check the box. This is a usability annoyance for the client because they do not understand why the system behaves this way.

Is there something someone else has done, or some method that can allow a checkbox to be set on a line without having to click twice.
