           Summary: usability improvements to datasource config UIs

          Platform: unspecified

            Status: UNCONFIRMED

Version:           1.0.0_pre1 (using KDE 3.2 BRANCH >= 20040204, Mandrake Linux Cooker i586 - Cooker)
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.2 (Mandrake Linux 10.0 3.3.2-6mdk)
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.3-7mdk

It is nice to have the possibility to configure datasources, but I believe we could and should make it nicer/more usable by:
1) moving the "Configure..." button in the datawizard below, next to the label stating the type of source instead of right to the file selector
2) in the kst settings/Data Sources tab, displaying a text field like "No configuration options available for this data source" when there is none (when "Configure" is inactive right now) in the empty space below the combo box, and embedding the config dialog in the same empty space when it exists (hoping there won't ever be such a complex config dialog that embedding it looks bad !)
