           Summary: Proper input constraints in New Album dialog
           Product: digikam
           Version: 0.8.2
          Platform: Debian testing
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: martin ringehahn de

Version:           0.8.2 (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages

When i create a new album, i have to adhere to input constraints, eg for the title which must not contain any forward slashes. If i enter such symbols and try to confirm the dialog via 'ok' there comes an error message (for example "Der Albumname darf keinen Schraegstrich enthalten", german for the forward slash problem).

Problem is: after i confirmed the error, my original Dialog with all other input done by me is lost - which makes this a  usability _bug_ in my eyes.

There should either be some constraints on those input fields - that i cannot enter eg forward slashes in the first time - or this error has to bring me back my original dialog with all my input i had already done.
