Edit dialog conflicts with New dialog
Description (last modified by )
It is not possible to open two edit dialogs for the same item type at once since BASE uses a (single) server-side setting to hold the current item being edited. Normally, a warning (This window has already been opened...) is displayed if a user tries to open two dialogs.
It is possible to open one edit dialog and the new item dialog at the same time without getting any warning. In this case the last opened dialog "wins" which is not always what the user wants. For example:
- Open "New item".
- Open the edit dialog for an existing item.
- Close edit dialog.
- Save the "New item".
This will overwrite the properties for the existing item. No new item is created.
This issue was discovered when creating a new software item but seems to apply to more or less all types of items.
