I'm trying to figure out what the best pattern or solution for this would be.
Basically, I have a table that will display rows and rows of items. The idea is that each row represents a data-entry, which is viewed in a new tab/window upon clicking the row itself.
However, I'd like to give users some affordances to allow them to easily delete the entries.
The common solution I see is to put a checkbox at the left of each row, and there's a separate button to apply an action (e.g. delete) to the selected rows. This lends itself well to batch-actions, but is kinda awkward if the expectation is that the user will only do said action to one row at a time.
So I was thinking of adding a Delete button to each row--but would this be awkward since hovering and clicking over the entire row will lead to the primary action (open link), but there'll be a button inside that row that leads to another action (delete)?
