#918 closed defect (fixed)

wizard widget button positioning and usability

Description

By default, the wizard buttons currently have the following order:

previous, next, cancel, done

This leads to the following confusing situation, when disabled buttons are hidden:

first step: next, cancel, done ... middle steps: previous, next, cancel middle steps: previous, next, cancel middle steps: previous, next, cancel ... last step: previous, cancel, done

At the last step, the user is expecting the "done" buttonat the place where previously was "next" , but there is the "cancel" button there.

Proposed solution: when disabled buttons are hidden, at the last step, the order of cancel and done buttons should be reversed (first "done", then "cancel") or there should be an widget option for defining the order of the buttons.

Milestone: 0.3.10.4

I don't think we can accept this bug for 0.3.1 unless there's an attendant patch (with CLA). There's just too little time now that we've started to roll and test RC builds. Punting to 0.4.

I agree that done should appear before cancel, so switching the order.
