Sometimes checkboxes are quite small. In various list tables, checkboxes are wrapped in a .check-column. Why not make the entire .check-column clickable, in case people (like me) miss?

Looks good to me. In 21516.2.diff I updated the patch, and made a slight tweak to include this functionality for the "check all" checkboxes in the table header row.

Current patch breaks checking.
Cannot use check all anymore.

Looked at this with @TacoVerdo, this needs a new patch if we want to fix it that ties into the check all functionality. Right now it doesn't check all when it should and doesn't check the current checkbox when you click it.

This would be great to have as an enhancement, we discussed this in our weekly design triage and it would be great to have implemented. Could we get a new patch for this?

  • Focuses accessibility added
  • Keywords needs-refresh 2nd-opinion added
  • Milestone changed from 5.9 to Future Release

The patch is 9 years old and needs refresh. Adding accessibility focus and 2nd-opinion. I don't think it's safe for 5.9 as it is now. Let's move to future release. Feel free to bring it back to 5.9 if a working patch is ready to go.
