Go to button in station window
« on: April 11, 2014, 02:10:01 AM »
I think it would be very useful if those 'go to' triangle buttons were added to the list of goods pilled up at the station.

Opening the destination station makes it easier to find the line that is backlogged.

I wonder if the dynamic nature of this listing complicates it. Both technically, in the sense that maybe there aren't really any rows to put the buttons in, and in terms of usability, as the buttons would move up and down as the list changes. Although for investigating congestion, the button will likely be quite stable at the top.

Well, if you sort be name, then the button may jump up an down. Same for a highly frequented station. (Not if you sort for via amount). Also, should it go to the next or the final station?

This is also not a real list but just row of text. It would require a different structure and more space. Not a very difficult change, but something which may not be as pretty as people think it would be.
