Some issues I found...

1. It should ask you to unlock prior to asking you to select a new account name rather than failing after you enter an account name because the wallet is locked.
2. Truncating the public key behaves poorly and unexpected when you click on it (we will remove the truncation)
3.  Clicking on a blind account should take you to the transfer page with the "from" already filled in
4. All account balances of from account should be displayed above the history
5. There is no way to recover past transfer receipts after you close the dialog, be sure to copy the receipt and give it to the person you are sending funds to.

This is the minimum interface to get things functional and does not represent what I consider to be a "finished" feature.

Issues  #1 and #3 have been fixed.

As a user I would expect a single option when doing a transaction. Stealth On(expensive)/Off(cheap).
Everything else will be not finished in my little world.
But I`m not the sponsor.
(just thinking out loud)

I was also thinking something similar. Maybe oversimplistic but either way, that's how it needs to be for everyone to use

1. Option to create a stealth account
2. Option to enable/disable stealth transfers

In the end I agree creating a stealth account (-deducted) and sending the money to it, before sending it further could happen automatically.

I wonder though, what happens if I am sending from a public account to a stealth account, instead of from my own stealth account? Then people can then tell who sent it, and to what address?

To get started, create an account on the test network.
Then go to settings and enable multiple account mode.
Then go to dashboard and create private account
Then give someone your public key.. or get someone else's public key
Then add public account (with their public key)
Should this be "Then add private account (with their public key) ??

In the transfer tab, if I enter my private account as the From account, the amount, memo and fee fields disappear.  send is greyed out.

If I enter my regular account name and enter a saved "~xxxx" labeled account as the To account, pressing send doesn't do anything.

Yeah I assume he means from the "public account" menu select "add private contact." So now I have

1) created a normal account, then
2) a stealth account
3) added Xeldal's public key, with label "xeldal"

OK I can send from my normal account to "~xeldal" :)

How about we all take this to telegram: https://web.telegram.org/#/im?p=g33416306

[Edit] oops thats probably because I don't have a balance on the private account yet.

Anyone who would like to experiment with stealth UI please post in this thread:

http://stealth.cnx.rocks/

To get started, create an account on the test network.
Then go to settings and enable multiple account mode.
Then go to dashboard and create private account
Then give someone your public key.. or get someone else's public key
Then add public account (with their public key)

Private accounts are indicated via a "~ACCOUNTNAME" in the transfer to/from field.  These accounts are not registered and are just local labels.

I have identified some major usability issues that we are going to address...

Some issues I found...

1. It should ask you to unlock prior to asking you to select a new account name rather than failing after you enter an account name because the wallet is locked.
2. Truncating the public key behaves poorly and unexpected when you click on it (we will remove the truncation)
3.  Clicking on a blind account should take you to the transfer page with the "from" already filled in
