Hi,

At first I thought indexes weren't shown anymore on the structure page, but then I saw they were hidden by default.
Please don't.

It doesn't make sense to hide stuff at the bottom of a page anyway. At the top or in the middle? Maybe, but not at the bottom.

    For now you can use $cfg['InitialSlidersState'] = 'open';

    Would you prefer that the "Details" slider only hide the space usage / row stats sections?

    P.S. these remarks would have been more helpful when 3.0 was in alpha/beta stage... but thanks anyway.

    No, I'd prefer nothing to be hidden. If the window isn't large enough, there's a scrollbar to 'unhide' the bottom of the page already... ;)

    BTW, I'm missing the engine type on the structure page.

    I did install those, but I guess I didn't use them enough.

    $cfg['InitialSlidersState'] = 'open'; applies to all sliders, but whilst the options on top of a table should be hidden indeed, the indizes shouldnt. Why hide indizes at all? Everybody who develops a database needs them quite regulary, all other probably never see the structures page anyway.

    Indexes no longer hidden. About hiding from the bottom, I think it makes sense in order to avoid displaying less-often used stuff like the table statistics.

    Why? What's the advantage?

    Screen is less cluttered.

    I don't think that's an issue for most users. It doesn't offset the disadvantage of requiring extra clicks to see the hidden info.

    On the contrary, my opinion is that most users won't need this information in day-to-day work.

     
  • Olaf van der Spek

    The fact that it's not always needed doesn't mean it's an advantage to hide it.

    I respect your opinion but I have a different opinion, so I guess we can discuss it "ad infinitum".
