#1352 closed defect (wontfix)

Prevent creating parent-less dialogs

Reported by: alsroot Owned by: erikos
Priority: High Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Sugar Version: 0.85.x
Severity: Major Keywords:
Cc: Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Unconfirmed


After moving to metacity we have many issues due to the fact that activity authors do not pass parent while creating ObjectChooser object(for example).

It could be useful for ObjectChooser to make parent argument required(it could be None) for 0.88 and add deprecation warning for 0.86 or do some smart job to autoset parent on shell side.

Also parent argument could be required for warning in 0.86) or new Dialog class.

Shanged type to defect since parent-less dialogs are bugs for 0.86.

I agree on this, but would be an API change so needs to be done at the start of a release cycle so activities have time to adapt. do people agree?

I tend to think this not worth anymore, it has been there for 4 years, it's not critical and the future toolkit is probably going to be html based.
