Hi Wen Wang!
Thanks for the patch! The UI looks better now but I still have some suggestions to make:

In the red are you can see those 2 fields are redundant.
We can only have the input box to collect the VLAN ID from user. If the input box is empty
(without any value) means the user does not want to set enable VLAN. Otherwise we get the value
and set it as the VLAN ID.
VLAN is optional, user need information to know that it is optional.

If remove the checkbox and "Enable VLAN", I believe for many users,
they need to think for a while about whether to fill the VLAN ID field, if they just leave it there, what will happen?

With "Enable VLAN", it removes so much confusion.

The VM name is also optional while creating a new VM and neither because that we have a check box there.

We can do the same and add a label before VLAN ID field to avoid confusion.

Destination:    |_____________________|

If you want to enable VLAN, please enter a VLAN ID below. Otherwise leave it in blank.
VLAN ID:        |_____________________|

To mark required fields, below is the best practice.

If there are 20 fields in a form and 10 of them are required, user read all the text to get all required fields.

I am trying to understand user's mental model and the concept model we should present.
vlan id is not an attr of network, it is an attr of the vlan which is created on top of network.
To express that "create a vlan with an id of xxxx", I prefer wang wen's original design.

So the fields to create a "Bridged" network are "Destination" (a combo box) and "VLAN ID" (an input box).

I'd like to see those 2 fields like below:

Destination:    |_____________________|
VLAN ID:        |_____________________|

In the first column the labels and in the second one the fields.

We also need to use the default kimchi style to the combo box and the input box.
The image below is from the "Edit Template" dialog.

We need to apply the same style to the network dialog.

Does that make sense for you?

Finished align vlan fields. Redesigned the pattern of the label positions

V3 -> V4:

Address to Hongliang Wang: Assigned "for" attribute for label to associate it with text box accordingly

V2 -> V3:

Address to Hongliang Wang: Have the additional margin place removed.

v1 -> v2:

Address to Hongliang Wang: Have the unrelated lines removed & Have the display format changed from table to div.
Address to Yuxin Huo: Have the unused IDs removed.
