Feature request #119
Run actions directly from the map canvas

It would be nice to be able to run actions by clicking on the map canvas aka identify but instead getting a list of the various actions that could be run on the identified features.

what if there are >1 actions with the same name for different layers?
Hmmm. It is currently possible to have more than one action with the same name for the same layer, and the actions are all shown in the drop-down and work as expected. I guess unless it was made impossible to have two actions with the same name for the same layer, then all the actions for all the layers would need to be listed separately, in which case there probably wouldn't be much pointed in making the tool work with multiple layers.
Please open a new ticket on this feature request.
I think it is probably too complicated for the way the "Run feature action" is implemented. The new "hotlink" plugin is probably a good enough solution.

Hi, If backporting is too risky, you can use (until 2.0 is released) "Hotlink plugin" published some weeks ago. Hotlink plugin is a clone of the Mapinfo tool. It opens a popup to allow user to choose available actions under cursor clic, on all layers in the same time. If user just hangs cursor without clicking, it displays a infotip with actions names.
