|Summary||0006896: 'wire transfer' dialog ugly and broken|
|Description||The new dialog for 'manual' wire transfers between accounts is broken. I can try to type in a payto URI like|
but it does not work, I just get a (badly rendered) error message.
Also, in the past we had a much nicer dialog that auto-completed account names, and didn't expect me to re-type the bank base URL inside of a payto URL or all of the other syntactic gunk of a payto://-URI.
It's OK to _also_ support payto://-URIs, but we should not ONLY support those. And, they must then actually work.
I'm fine with this functionality having moved onto a separate page, but it should at least
(1) still be easy to do such a transfer, and
(2) not require payto:// (it can be an option).
|Tags||No tags attached.|
The "payto" address you wrote has the money receiver specified as a name, whereas the current version requires a number. I tried it right now on bank.test.taler.net by replacing "exchange" with a account _number_, and it worked.
That said, is the error message you mention that one rectangular balloon saying "please match the requested format"? Or it is something else?
Yes, that's the error message. It should be placed more nicely. Also, users have no good way to learn their account numbers, and in principle payto://-URIs can and should use the names of the accounts, so we should support using the names.
And again, it would be best to have entering a payto://-URI as one option, but to generally have the simpler "target amount + account (name) + subject" entry back as well.
||Up to this commit: 9d87bacdb483e2ac74da1de7b6afc2833c78f5f4, the bank allows the specification of payment receiver via their usernames.|
The bug is mostly addressed, except that it doesn't autocomplete on account names. That's intentional, for the following reasons:
1. Why telling users which other users exist in the system?
2. Requires non trivial logic for a little gain.
3. Placing a element carrying a huge list of usernames next to the wire transfer form is eye-unfriendly.
If OK with the three points above, this bug can be closed.
