When creating a new project or doing any other action which uses a popup dialog to collection information, clicking outside of the popup modal (on the greyed out background), dismisses the popup, losing all information which has been collected.

The popup should only be dismissed when the Cancel button is clicked explicitly (and even then, it should probably ask for confirmation if some of the fields have already been filled in).

- Disables closing form dialogs via backdrop click or escape key. As discussed with Tom Morris, this does not include a cancel confirmation when fields have been partially filled.

#5 Updated by Peter Amstutz 19 days ago

Disabling the "click on background to dismiss" behavior LGTM.

From chat, I think it should still be possible to use the escape key to cancel a dialog, it is much less likely that someone would hit it by accident.

#6 Updated by Eric Biagiotti 19 days ago

Rebased to exclude blocking the escape key from dismissing the dialog @ bd1f778b16ab0bc2219c1314880ad4be6452a22c
