WebAdmin: Select option instead of Drag-n-Drop
create an selection option instead of requiring drag and drop
We manage the Astaro firewalls through Remote Desktop Services, which means we are starting firefox on a Remote Desktop Server Host. A rule we teach all our remote desktop sysops is that you don't drag and drop. We always work in different locations, sometimes through mobile connection, which can be lossy/****** connections. If a hickup in the internetconnection occurs while dragging and dropping a customer directory in windows explorer this could mean a disaster outcome, which is the reason we always tell our sysops to use copy/paste or other dialog screens that don't require drag and drop. So an "ADD" or selection button in the astaro would be nice instead of the only option to drag and drop.
In network definitions, editing a network group --> using the folder icon --> lists networks (ctrl+z) --> Here you need to drag and drop the members.

Yes, DND also has been a hassle with iPhones, but, apparently, they've fixed that in V9.
It seems like there could be a checkbox in 'WebAdmin Settings' for 'Select instead of Drag-and-Drop'. Then you'd click on a folder to have the list appear, select an object, and then click again on the folder icon to populate the field.
Note that this would be more efficient for use in V9 and later where these fields can contain multiple objects.
Cheers - Bob
