Suggestion for changing execution icons

Postby m1ch13l » Mon Mar 20, 2017 5:45 am

Hi,

I wasn't completely happy with the execution icons introduced in 1.9.16 because I feel their function is not immediately clear to the user. So you need to hover to see what they actually do from the tooltip.
I have created a set of icons based on icons available from [url]materialdesignicons.com[/url] I feel are more clear. I've used the same color scheme indicated to use the status in the execution treeview to make this feel consistent.
I've made them available on https://github.com/MichielVT/testlink-c ... ionButtons.
I can make the svg files available if you would like to change them further.
Let me know what you think about these.

And do you consider a great annoyance? People have no time to learn? what a pity.

For a while I do not plan to change the icons, anyway thanks for your work.

Hi fman,

This is definitely not a great annoyance, I think it is more of a possible minor improvement.
Sure people can learn, but being clear at first sight without need to learn is in my opinion a plus for any UI component.

I'm just trying to contribute a tiny bit to making TestLink better than it already is thanks to all the work you and the dev team have done, even if it is by something as silly as a few icons.

Disagree with your opinion, people will use his/her brain, this is a important thing to have people doing good jobs
