Description James Montemagno [MSFT] 2016-11-02 19:05:34 UTC
Open VS
Open Connect to Mac Build Agent Dialog
Enter manual connection
Enter incorrect IP
Takes forever with no indication that anything is happening.

There should be a dialog letting you know it is trying to connect

Re assigning to Joe to decide the best UI approach to take to optimize the User Experience
Comment 2 James Montemagno [MSFT] 2017-06-20 17:01:33 UTC
The connection dialog should come up right away. It take soo long to time out that you have no idea if it is even trying to connect.
Comment 3 Pierce Boggan [MSFT] 2017-06-20 17:23:54 UTC
I think a simple "Attempting to Connect to Mac..." dialog with a spinner would be sufficient. Just some sort of visual indicator to let users know so they don't spam all the buttons, think something is frozen, or assume they are connected.
