moodle_thunderbird_20141115.png

Pressed the button to create a new message

The To/Cc/Bcc selected recipients appear in lines

This is just an idea to improve it:
They should appear in editor gadgets just like in Outlook, but with some improvements like in the screenshot of Moodle 2.5 of the university I work for.

Notice the "Professor" with the red "x". I think this is made in JavaScript since the "professor" is text when you try to select with the mouse.

[14:26] <clokep> I don't understand what that screenshot is trying to show. :-\
[14:27] <marcoagpinto> clokep: the names of the recipients: "Marco Pinto x" "Aceman x"
[14:27] <marcoagpinto> each name should appear like that in the editor gadget
[14:27] <marcoagpinto> then people should be able to delete them by clicking in the "x"

[14:28] <clokep> marcoagpinto: So you're just suggesting a small x appear so they can be deleted?
[14:28] <marcoagpinto> yes
[14:28] <marcoagpinto> :)
[14:28] <clokep> Have you seen JosiahOne's plans to totally redo the To/CC/BCC lines of the editor?
[14:28] <marcoagpinto> and a box for each
[14:29] <marcoagpinto> a box for To, other for Cc and other for Bcc

I also wanted to mention a box just like Outlook uses, with multiple recipients inside each.

proposed copy

Shouldn't we have something like this? :)
Suyash, yes. That's very similar to my proposal, except the X will actually be a drop down icon to list options for the address. Regardless, this bug is kind of obsolete because of that bug.

Thanks for the screenshot which is better than my silly text.

Nevermind :)

Cool! So, can you please mention that bug so that the reporter can be convinced
and we can mark this bug as a dupe(?) or anything else that shows this is being
solved by that?

Thanks.

Duplicate of bug: 440377
From a bug management perspective, this bug is not a duplicate of bug 440377:

1) This bug is also filed and valid against the current multiline layout; we never know when bug 440377 will actually land and it might very well be possible and faster to land an easy fix for this in the current layout (make an X appear on hovering address lines, or add an X to every address line).

2) Bug 440377 may or may not implement this exact functionality as requested here, and Josiah's tentative comment 5 suggests it might be done in a different way which does not provide the efficiency suggested here. So if bug 440377 actually implements this in a satisfying way, we can still close this, but until then, it's a bug in it's own right.

And of course, it's a long known issue already reported...
