Disable during action should be the default - Mendix Forum

Disable during action should be the default


It's just weird that the default behaviour for anything a user can click on, is that they are allowed to double click with results varying from unwanted behaviour to errors or confusion.

- For every microflow button "Disable during action" should have been the default.

- This setting should be available for buttons in datagrids.

- Clear examples should be provided for developers of custom widgets to achieve the same behaviour in custom widgets as well.

I can think if only one use case where the current default behaviour is desired, which is when you're making a Mendix version of Cookie Clicker. Implementing these suggested changes would make every application better by default, while still allowing the flexibility to use to old setting if really desired.

Hi Marcel, which Mendix version do you use? Below image from a Mx 8.12.x app, where the “Disable during action” is a property and default is set to yes on datagrid action buttons


Great that this is default for non datagrid buttons, but what about datagrid buttons (like 90% of the buttons in our app). When will those be disabled during action by default? Now we can't even set this property on datagrid buttons.
