Make guest cdrom edit UI consistent with guest interface edit UI. The key point

up that in the same storage tab, there is also lines for disks, which have more
editable properties and it's not that easy to make all of these properties stay
in one line. So for disks, possibly we still need provide another window to let
users update properties.
  So here are 2 choices:
  C1) Apply this PATCH v2 to keep cdrom consistent with interface
  C2) Apply PATCH v1 to keep cdrom consistent with disk

  Both are OK for me.

v1 -> v2:
  2a) Made updating cdrom properties in place

We also need to keep consistence in the "+" button.
In the network tab, it adds a new line to the list and user change the values accordingly.
And in the storage tab, a new dialog is displayed to collect user input.

Could you send a separate patch for that?
Hi Aline, as I was adding this feature, I found it's different from interface that for storage, there is not only CDROMs, but also disks. There are more settings for disks so I suggest retain the pop-up window for attaching devices.

Good point!

And if we do the following:

1) user select + and we add a new line and set the default values for cdrom

Type        Path
cdrom       <an empty input box>

2) if user changes type to "disk", we replace the input box for 2 combo boxes, one for storage pool and other for storage volume

Type        Path
disk        |storage pool| |storage volume|

When user selects "Save" we will know the path based on storage pool and volume, and turns to the first UI

Type         Path
cdrom        /var/lib/libvirt/myiso.iso
disk         /var/lib/libvirt/mypool/mypool-vol.img

What do you think?
That's good! I made a mock-up UI and it looks fine (though I forgot to capture a screen shot :-( ). There are 5 fields as follow:

Device Name   |   Device Type    |    Device Bus    |    Path                  +
vda            Disk               IDE                /kvmfiles/images/381d4f75-8ee2-43d3-b509-20e80e715544-0.img
hda            CDROM              IDE                /kvmfiles/images/Fedora-18-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso

  The only problem left here is the style issue. We were applying relatively "big" fonts and icons, though we are switching to relatively small icons and controls. A re-design needs to make Kimchi UI consistent.

Big style for drop-down list used in most parts of Kimchi

Small style for drop-down list used here
