Description Andrew Cagney 2007-03-06 21:24:38 UTC
The Session Assistant needs to clearly explain what is going to happen next with
an introductory page.

-> clicking "next" on that page goes to the current first proc-picker page
-> clicking, don't show this again tick-box, stops the page appearing
-> editing preferences lets the box again appear

It might also be better to, at this point, have the user select if they want to
create a debug or monitoring session (i.e., before they get to the proc-picker).

(that would mean that the screen isn't optional).

Created attachment 1629 [details]
screen shot of a possible assistant page

would something like the attached screenshot help ? with some nice icons maybe
This would be page 2 in the assistant.

I have a few suggestions to solve this, and the Quick Debug button problem.
Doing screen shots its time consuming so I will try to describe it verbally and
people feel they need screen shots, I throw some together.

[1] Merge Session Manager into the Assitant so that it becomes page 1
[2] At the bottom *always* have present a next, back, and finish (start?)  
    clicking the finish button takes you directly to frysk with the default or
    the previously saved settings
[3] Page 2 of the session is a page which enables the user to choose from a 
    Traditional debugging session or a Monitoring Session, something like what   
    is in the attached screen shot 
    My feeling is that this should only effect what window (source or monitor)
    is presented first, and that the user can always switch between the modes
    even after the session has been started.

The rest of the pages remain the same. Thoughts ?
