|Re: [ui-best-practices-working-group] [platform-ui-dev] Blocking UI: Wizard Dialog modality|
I’ve always started with the premise, dialogs are bad, especially if they’re modal. Are they really so important they need to grab 100% of the users attention and not let go until it’s satisfied? Some are, yes, but not many IMHO.
Non-modal dialogs starts you down the path of having a multi-window application. At one point in history, we decided that was bad. Is that still true? Or are non-modal dialogs different enough to escape that criticism.
Are there alternative approaches to dialogs, especially the complex dialog case, that we could use instead?
