//TODO : update the title.
UI Fails #2, SSMS Dropdown Button
Using the “generate scripts” wizard in SSMS, I always have to stop and check my eyes on the last step.
Clicking a row in the dropdown performs the action you would expect the button to do. It’s bizarre the form doesn’t use checkboxes or option buttons for picking the output format, since both are already in use.
In the grand scheme of things, this is a minor inconsistency. But…this is from Microsoft, and a lot of developers just starting out will unconsciously emulate the look and feel of the tools they use most often. We need better examples than this to start out with.
