Re: disabling IndicatingAjaxButton during submision?

2014-10-10 Thread Martin Grigorov
Hi,

As explained elsewhere the disabling of a button/link/... is not a single
solution that works for everyone. That's why it is not part of Wicket
itself.

If it is just about suppressing the clicks on the button then using
AjaxChannel.Type.ACTIVE is good enough. By using ACTIVE type you tell
Wicket to not execute any Ajax request if there is an active (currently
running) one.

But most probably you want additionally some visual effect that tells the
user that the button is disabled. And here each application may have
different requirements.
Some apps may change the color of the button. This cannot be generic
solution because Wicket devs cannot mandate what color should be used.
Another solution is to change the box shadow, making the effect of a
pressed button. Again Wicket cannot prescribe such solution for all apps.
It won't even work for older IEs.
Probably the most common solution is to use a veil on the whole screen (or
just part of it). For example Apache Isis uses global Ajax listeners to
show/hide a veil -
https://github.com/martin-g/isis/blob/ISIS-537-use-bootstrap/component/viewer/wicket/ui/src/main/java/org/apache/isis/viewer/wicket/ui/pages/jquery.isis.wicket.viewer.js#L52-L57.
Additionally it uses FontAwesome spinning font icon (
http://fontawesome.io/examples/) instead of IndicatingAjaxButton's
spinner.gif.

As you can see there are many ways to achieve disabling an action. Wicket
is mature enough to give you the freedom to choose the one that fits the
best your functional and visual requirements.

As always - if Wicket users (like you) convince us that a generic
improvement is possible then we will consider it!

 Let me first say that IndicatingAjaxButton is really cool, and works
 great! It was just what I needed. Thanks to whoever wrote it.

 Disabling the submission button during submission, however, is just going
 to load me down a rat's hole of research and experimentation and
 trial-and-error and half-solutions. We have a tight deadline to meet. We're
 going to have to go with just IndicatingAjaxButton and leave it at that.
 Hopefully we can come back and address this in a future version of our
 project.

 I'm just explaining our situation as it is. Nothing  personal directed to
 anyone, and I appreciate the suggestions from Martin Grigorov.

 In the Wicket documentation there is some complicated code

 How can I simply disable the Ajax button during submission? I can't find

 from one version of Wicket to the next. Any easy solutions?

Hi,

Recently I've added integration for
http://msurguy.github.io/ladda-bootstrap/ to
https://github.com/l0rdn1kk0n/wicket-bootstrap.

It was as simple as these two lines:
https://github.com/l0rdn1kk0n/wicket-bootstrap/blob/65529876b31781bc27441b6b2e17559c97abbd0d/bootstrap-extensions/src/main/java/de/agilecoders/wicket/extensions/markup/html/bootstrap/ladda/LaddaAjaxCallListener.java#L15-L16

i.e. in onBeforeSend() do whatever your button needs to make itself
disabled. In onComplete() revert it.

It looks like I would spend half the day just trying to figure out how 
to integrate yet another library.


So how can I easily and simply disable a button during submission using 
only core Wicket? Can it be done?


Garret

P.S. When somebody wanted to integrate a solution into core Wicket, they 
were turned down https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WICKET-5360.
