Improved Navigation - Breadcrumb

Shane Day (Chief Technology Officer) 7 years ago • updated by anonymous 3 years ago 4

If I click Create Schedule accidentally, or just to see what it does, I must either use the back button to return to the operation list, or renavigate back to it using the tabs.

An additional mechanism for navigation should be provided, eg breadcrumb.

This is something we've discussed before but didn't really reach a conclusion on. There's a few ways to do it I think; a button that post backs and redirects (will resemble a webforms UI but we shouldn't really be using postbacks), a standard anchor link (don't know how to make it look good) or the breadcrumb stuff we've talked about.

The "Cancel" mechanism is not available across multiple configurations, settings and update.
There is no "Cancel" mechanism to navigate back to the previous step or screen.

Moved to Beta 2 as we need to determine feasibility of breadcrumbing (and find an alternative if not possible)

Moved to 3.x as the out-of-the-box solution (site-map) is not appropriate for the dynamic nature of a lot of the Event Broker pages, and a more flexible solution would have to be used. This would require configuration and extensive testing.

Look at http://mvcsitemap.codeplex.com/ for a possible solution.
