Filter composer UI

Postby Hubird » Sat Oct 02, 2010 12:34 pm

In the filter composer you have 3 suggested filters and the custom filter section. After modifying the custom filter section there is no easy way to get the full URL back in that space. Could changing the selection from custom to any other option be made to repopulate the custom filter section with the full URL ?

Also, how about making it a little more clear the the top "New Filter" box is not editable (like in the mock up below) ?

Custom filter: I guess some button to reset the value would be helpful. Resetting automatically when the user changes selection is IMO confusing.

Changing the look of the "new filter" field: problematic because of the need to support different themes. Unfortunately, the default Firefox theme doesn't mark read-only fields in any way. I could make that field disabled - but that would prevent users from copying text. Playing around with transparency doesn't do the right thing either.

Anyway, moving this to Future development.
