Playlists: ask the user before removing folders/playlists

Today I removed a folder by accident (I wanted to rename it...) - and it had lots of sub-folders and playlists in it.

I was really shocked when I saw it was gone... luckily all subfolders and playlists still existed in the database, so I only had to re-create the folder-entry in the database and everything was OK again...


But nevertheless I think Helium should ask the user, before removing (non-empty) folders/playlists.


Implemented in the upcoming 12.4 release. 

By the way: when removing a folder, all subfolders and playlists should be removed too.
(Even though I was happy, they haven't been deleted...)

Maybe it would be a good idea to create a "trash bin" at the bottom of the window, where the removed items will be put and from where they could be deleted?

This will be something to review after 12.4.

Yes, of course they will be. The warning now mentions this this so it should be handled.

Of course, that's nothing for the upcoming release.

By items I meant only playlists, I guess it's not necessary to put folders in the trash bin...

So you changed the behavior? As I mentioned, they haven't been removed from the database in my case... (built 14666)

Yes. I'm a few versions ahead of the RC at the moment, doing final fixes for the official release... I cannot share a version at the moment though, due to several component updates which are not completed.

No problem.
