#428 closed defect (fixed)

replace the GS3 GLI startup dialog asking for a server location

Reported by: dmn Owned by: ak19
Priority: very high Milestone: 3.04 Release
Component: GLI Severity: blocker
Keywords: Cc:


As GLI is the face of GS for most users then after a new installation of GS3, when you start GLI, the first thing users see is a ...

..'Warning!' dialog

asking for the URL to the server.

This is silly and actively user-hostile!

Either this should be done:

  • in the installer
  • by GLI querying the server config files and extracting this value
  • at the very least, it should not be a 'warning!' dialog, but a one-time only configuration dialog which is pre-filled with the default value which is actually specified in the text! Currently it does not even point out that GLI remembers this value when it is entered.

The current dialog is unacceptable.

Committed changes to GLI's (revision 18131): the dialog still pops up when you first run GLI, but now it already contains the likely URL for the library which is obtained from the servername and port number in GS3's file. Also made the OK button the default button (activated on pressing Enter) to get through this dialog faster.
