Description andreaswuest 2009-01-19 20:36:07 UTC
Version:           2.0.1 (using 4.1.3 (KDE 4.1.3), Kubuntu packages)
Compiler:          cc
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.27-9-generic


the podcast configuration dialog has only two buttons. one that says "apply"
and the other says "cancel". so if you perform any changes you have to press
"apply" and the "cancel", which is very weird imho. if you have a look
at the metadata edit dialog of the mp3 files you will see that this dialog
works a bit different. it has also two buttons. one that says "cancel", but
the other one says "apply & close". so please make the behaviour consistent
and change the "apply" button in the podcast edit dialog to a "apply & close"

What you suggest already has a solution in the general UI concept of OK. This button covers the same as Apply & Close, so it'd be sort of silly to go and call it anything else ;) Other than that, yup, forcing people to click the cancel button to close a dialogue isn't so good :)

So, in stead i suggest: OK, Apply, Cancel. It is the standard(TM) ;)

if this is the best way to implement, then the edit metadata dialog for the mp3
files should be modified as well !
