Wrong WBS Deleted If Another WBS Is Clicked While Waiting For Prompt (Doc ID 2232075.1)

When deleting a WBS that is large or there is high latency, there is a pause before the prompt appears (this is the prompt that says 'You are about to delete Activities which have Actual Units').

During this time a user can select another WBS click because it looks like P6 is not doing anything. If the user clicks on another WBS node and doesn't realize, then the prompt appears and then click 'Yes' to delete, the 'newly clicked' WBS is deleted and not the original one.

Both prompts should be loaded before any other actions can be carried out on a different WBS.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Log into P6 Client
  2. Select a large WBS
  3. Right click to delete
  4. At the first prompt select 'Delete Element'
  5. While waiting for next prompt to appear click elsewhere in the WBS window (select another WBS)
  6. Nothing will appear to happen until the next prompt appears where you will notice the new WBS is now 'selected'
  7. Continue to delete.
  8. The original WBS remains but the second WBS that was accidentally clicked is deleted.
