Hmm, it is a good idea to hide the cancel button when we do not implement
the cancel action or the HV doesn't support the implement.

The API jobInfo can not provide any info when job ends. It can used only when
the job is running. I think we would hide the cancel button only when
the HV doesn't support abortJob.

OK. I will test it before sending v3 patch.

No plans now.

Hmm, It is better to launch a confirm dialog than to overwrite the delete event.

Sounds good.

I will add some codes to deal with the the error in v3 patch.

Thank you for so many comments. I will modify this patch.
