Re: [ui-best-practices-working-group] Modal dialogs

That may have been me. I was at EclipseCon and I take every opportunity to gather forces in the revolution against modal dialogs and I've been meaning to make that change for some time. I haven't actually done anything about it yet. :-)

I recall someone at EclipseCon mentioning they were looking at changing all model dialogs to non-modal in the platform. Given the asynchronous nature of most Eclipse tasks, I would have thought this would be desirable, if not for every dialog, at least as the preferred dialog presentation. I’d be interested if anyone knows the status of this effort. What are your thoughts on the practicality of making this the default presentation?
