th1ahi replaceafill.17:32
replaceafillhey th1a17:32
replaceafillok, #2 and #3 are done17:33
th1aHow are things coming?17:33
replaceafillon #4 copy/paste17:33
replaceafillso, couple of questions17:33
th1aGood.  Any surprises?17:33
replaceafillwe just care about the number of rows being exactly the same17:33
replaceafillwhat if the activity you're trying to paste on has already values?17:34
replaceafilland i need a good error message for the dialog, which i assume should be modal?17:34
th1aI don't know that it needs to be *modal*.17:35
th1aOr that it matters.17:35
th1aI would say we cover up the old values.17:35
th1aEsp. since saving is a separate step?17:35
replaceafillthis paste will only insert input fields, right?17:36
th1aOK.  That gives you a chance to abort.17:36
th1aWhat else might it do?17:36
replaceafillok, we're on the same page17:36
replaceafillso, user has to click Save after that17:36
replaceafillso, we don't care about anything else, but number of rows?17:37
replaceafillwe could identify usernames17:37
replaceafillbut that's probably not necessary17:37
th1aI don't think so.17:39
th1aThis is the quick version.17:39
th1aThis is the "enough rope to hang yourself" version.17:39
th1aWe tend not to add stuff like this because we go straight to the "Oh God,what email am I going to get from Tanzania in three years because of this."17:40
replaceafillso, web storage provides local and session storage17:41
replaceafillone doesn't expire and the other does17:41
replaceafillso i'm thinking of using session17:41
replaceafillwish me luck! :P17:42
replaceafillthat's it from me17:42
th1aOK, cool.17:42
th1aI'm going to fire up Windows and write some invoices.  Also probably an article for the paper.17:42
th1aNo email from Fran this morning.17:43
th1aKeeps my blood pressure low.17:43
th1aThanks replaceafill.17:43

replaceafillth1a, you there?20:15
replaceafillerror message for copy/paste?20:15
th1aThere are two errors or one?20:16
*** menesis has quit IRC20:17
th1aDo you paste invalid entries and just show them in red?20:17
th1aThat's fine.20:17
th1aSo just...20:17
replaceafillwell, i need to add validation still20:17
replaceafillbut yeah, that's the idea20:17
replaceafillthe error is just for row count mistmatch20:17
th1aThe number of pasted values must match the number of rows in this sheet.20:18
th1aHow's that?20:18
