Info MessageDialog allowed?

    Question

  • My app comes pre-loaded with "demo" data so the user can see the app in full blown action right off the bat.  One example is looking at the report with demo data is way better than looking at an empty report.

    I have a MessageDialog that pops up when the user first starts the app that says the "the app is pre-loaded with demo data.  After you are finished looking around, you can delete it by swiping up on the main screen and selecting the 'delete demo data' option."

    Is this sort of 'help' allowed?


    Thank you, Terrence

  • I'd probably present the info in a notification flyout at the top of the screen rather than in a MessageDialog. In most cases it is better to avoid trapping the user in a modal state.
