The dialog conversion tool is provided to help extend existing components that only have a dialog defined for the classic UI (based on ExtJS) or based on Granite UI and Coral 2. The tool uses the original dialog to create a duplicate dialog designed for the standard UI, based on Granite UI and Coral 3.
The goal of this tool is to automate the upgrade as far as possible, increase efficiency, and reduce errors. However because the tool can not cover every scenario, the process can not be fully automated and the user must review the converted dialogs and possibly make additional adjustments. The tool is intended as an aid to help you start the conversion process, but not intended to take full control of the conversion.
The tool will create the new dialog using the standard, Granite UI and Coral 3-based UI, but it will skip what it cannot convert. Therefore the resulting dialog might contain nodes from the original dialog copied as-is, if no rule matched that specific component. In addition, a converted component might have some unconverted properties, because there was no appropriate rule to convert them.
