    Object Browser UI Question

    Hi folks,

    JDE Object Browser was built on the MFC UI from 2006(ish). MS has since adopted the use of ribbon bars instead of menus and tool bars. As we look to rebuild OB on a newer framework, I'm interested to hear opinions about employing a ribbon bar UI. I'm old and still unsure about it.

    thanks, as always, for any feedback,
    Craig

    It would probably be more consistent with a lot of apps these days and what people are probably used to. I believe you also have or are developing a web version, I haven't installed it yet so I have not personally used the UI, but it might also lead to a more consistent UI with the web version. I think everyone will be fine with it either way. Personally, I never recovered when MS went to the Ribbon interface in their office apps... never learned the key board shortcuts... but that's office and I don't think the transition for Object Browser will be that difficult should you choose to go that route.
