Issue/Introduction

When deleting a selected item, the Common View Details flyout behavior is incorrect and inconsistent between the different layouts. Some layouts close the flyout on delete, others keep it open but do not refresh and still show details of the deleted item.

User Impact:

  1. Details flyout is closed and the user must take action to reopen it. This is annoying, and inconsistent with the flyout behavior during other data editing actions.
  2. I can attempt to "edit" the details of the already deleted item, resulting in an API error causing confusion.

Expected Results: 

  1. Flyout always remains open (we persist the users choice of flyout open/closed, we should not auto-close it).
  2. If the layout supports it (grid), the next/previous item should be selected and displayed in flyout details
  3. If the layout does not support auto-selecting another item, the flyout should refresh and show null state "No Item Selected".

Current Behavior by Layout: 

  • Grid
    • If there is another item in view: grid selection/focus moves to the next item. Details flyout is not refreshed and deleted item details are still displayed.
    • note: attempting to edit details in flyout (e.g. object name) results in API error
    • If there are no other items in view, grid selection is cleared and details flyout refreshes to null state "No item selected" (this is the one usee case that behaves correctly)
  • Board
    • Flyout closes
  • Timeline (Swimlanes)
    • Flyout closes
  • Timeline (Gantt)
    • Timeline selection/focus is cleared. Details flyout is not refreshed, and deleted item details are still displayed.
    • note: attempting to edit details in flyout (e.g. object name) results in API error
