Bug report #13939

WMS authorization dialog locks up QGIS

Added by marisn - almost 7 years ago. Updated over 3 years ago.

Category:Web Services clients/WMS
Affected QGIS version:master Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:end of life
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:21956


Steps to reproduce:
  • add a WMS server that requires username and password;
  • do NOT provide user/pass in server configuration dialog;
  • select a layer and click "add layer";
  • observe how "enter username and password" dialog comes up, but is not possible to enter any data into it or to close it.

The only way how to get rid of this dialog is to kill QGIS app (with all consequences).

This is a bug coming from a Qt bug that has been fixed for Qt 5.0 but there is no fix for Qt 4.8. Still, as per Qt bugs description, this is a wrong use of modal dialogs.

QGIS versija 2.13.0-Master
