Description

Hello,

in the "Cards" view of the VM section all you can do is "Connect" or "Stop/Start" depending on whether the VM is already running or not.
In the "Table" view the menu choices are limited to "Edit", "Devices" and "Delete.
In the "Slim" view the only option is "Connect".

"Restart" and "Power off" are nowhere to be seen.

Kind regards,
Patrick

Many actions are behind the "three dots menu", which in the Cards and slim view is at the top right of the card, and in table view is the farthest-right column.

In the default Dark theme, it can be difficult to see this menu, but it's there.

I'm using the default theme and there is no menu at all in the cards or the slim variant ...

Please see the attached screenshots.

Tested on FreeNAS-11.2-MASTER-201810010839

When in "Table" view, the only way to start a VM is to click the red power button.
There is no option in the three-dot menu to start the VM. However, the options to "Power Off" and "Stop" are in the three-dot menu if the VM is powered on.

power on/off button (red/green power icon) in vm table view button is used for turning VM on/off with single button. I think this is in line with the card view as well. let me know if you think otherwise.

Discussed with VB: We need to change the behavior of the "Stop" option of a VM in Table view to match that of a VM in Cards or Slim view:

A stopped VM in Cards/Slim displays an option to "Start" the VM in the More Options menu (vertical dots). A started VM in Cards/Slim displays an option to "Stop" the VM in the More Options menu. The table view More Options menu should reflect this behavior.
