Should be able to multi-select containers/images for deletion #1517
referenced this issue
Nov 26, 2014
I feel there are two different issues here.
For the first issue there is no delete function in the list right now to avoid accidental deletion. If we could either have a delete button for every container and have the dialog pop up for every deletion (about the same amount of work as now, but less jumping back and forth) or have some kind of safety lock function as we have on the overview for deleting machines (and then skip the dialog for that case) that might solve it.
Where is the discussion and points from @dperpeet. I think the second mockup is too cluttered. It's already easy to delete containers by clicking on them, and then clicking 'Delete'. That's the most discoverable manner.
The alternate delete buttons are strictly an optimized path. I think it is acceptable that it isn't pushed in the user's face.
@stefwalter we were discussing it over IRC on Friday.
After thinking some more about this over the weekend and playing around a bit with the pull request I think we should go for the first design where the delete buttons are only visible if the check is checked.
