Another thing I have wondered if we could change the four top Info. Current Balance, Forged Balance, Assets Owned, NRS Version. For me, thats not all the things that belong to most important attention at first sight. Would it not be better to have Current Balance, Messages, Asset Balance (Calculated at current Bid prices) and Connected to peers?

Yes, good idea. I don't really care about forged balance. Thougt, I think NRS version is still important at the current stage of Nxt. Indeed, critical update do happen and the user need to be informed. Maybe in the future NRS version won't be that important.

Cool. But for the NRS version, it does not need to be displayed in one of the four boxes imo. Some text in some corner would maybe be sufficient, with some small warning message (in red is eye catchy with this layout, as in this forum) for urgent updates.

In such context, I agree.

I suddenly realize that transactions could be separate into two categories.

One is you triggered(send NXT, message or make bid etc.) that you have to do that in front of the wallet, and those action goes into 'Recent Transactions' only for later check.

One is somebody else triggered for you(receive NXT, message, goods delivered etc.) that could happen when you not there,  and those action we must keep eye on it.

I think the later one is more important for most of us. Maybe a separation is good?

Or when I'm busy doing some AE trade, and somebody sent me a message while that time, it still can't be seen because flushed by my trade transactions.

After a couple of hours work, that's what I came up with :)
I used MrV777 icons, modified them a bit,  and rearanged every thing. I belive everything is quite self explanatory.

What do you guys think?


Offcours if a transaction containing Nxt or assets is outgoing, the Amount would be red.
This is my favourite! Looks very clean.

I don't think we need a recent blocks or messages on the dashboard.

I think the wording should say something like "Last updated:" rather than last block, as easier for newcomers. Although the block number next to the time and date.

One point though, the asset transfer icon everything I see it I think WiFi transfer.

What about showing the Asset name instead of 'Asset Transer' ?

With this info in the screenshot I get to know I received 21.7 Assets. But which one? This I have to research myself in the wallet -_-

Agree that the 4 boxes could do with a re-think.

I don't think forged balance should be there at all! So confusing for newcomers.

Ideal situation if they are swappable, and think that's something that Jones is working on (widgets). But in the mean time think we should just select the 4 most handy boxes, remembering this is the first screen everybody sees.

Would be handy, not sure how well it would fit with every asset name being a different length. Possibly shown on mouse roll over instead?

@ Rudiboi
Thats a good thought! On the other hand, while the client should be newbie/average joe friendly, they must atleast know a litlie bit about how it works. So knowing that an transaction is only valid if it got eccepted into a block and that blocktimes may differ, is vital knowladge for the end-user IMO. So I would say if the user dosn't know what "last block" means, then he shouldn't be using the system any ways.
But thats just my opinion. Lets see what othesrs think about that :)


@Fatih87SK: I think what rudeboi sugested is a very good sulution, when hovering above the "Asset Transfer" the info would  ppo up.
I think same should be done when moving the mous above the date, that a popup will show number of confirms.

@MrV777: How much work would you estimate that changing the GUI to this design would would take? Maybe, we can go ahed with your last design idea for this release, and the release after that we have this design ready?

I can see what would be involved with doing it this way today.

I still have to figure a few things out, but I don't believe it should take too long.  Like I was saying, my screenshots were of the actual client with changed code (no photoshop), so you can see the progress.  It also matter what we put in the top 4 blocks from the other posting.  One unknown right now is calculating the Asset Balance to show up.  I know what needs to be down, but I haven't looked at the code for it yet

It you decide to put total asset balance based on last trade or last bid price, for an account with many assets this will do many database queries. Need to test and make sure it is fast enough before going forward with such design. Slowly loading dashboard on first access will be a bad user experience.

Last block height and number of connected peers are useful indicators of your node status, whether you are connected and up to date or on a fork. There should be a place for those somewhere on the dashboard.

Good point Jean-Luc.  I only have 8 assets on my account so that isn't the best test.  I think wesley had the client doing API calls asynchronously to help with any delay from my understanding.  I am using the highest bid price currently to calculate it

I'm wondering if someone with an account with a lot of asset would be willing to test the new client GUI.  I suppose I could buy a lot, but if anyone that is willing to test already has a lot that would be easier and it would provide me with another user's perspective on everything.

Does anyone have a long delay when loading the "My Assets" page currently?

Nice changes in the GUI until now! Just one little thing what would be nice to add:

Would it be possible to get something like "Last Message" on the Dashboard message tab, where it displays the date of the last message.

This way it could be noticed, if a new message did come in recently =)

I love the new GUI, simple and clear. Thank you MrV777!

And little thing too: would it be possible change the <title> of the page to like "(1) NXT Wallet" when new transactions coming and the wallet page is not on focus? :)
