Hello dev,

I have made thorough tests for the new External Resource widget and I have found some bugs which are pretty annoying.
I have a pending PR for the fix so I will not make a report for each bug but just an abstract of what I have found so far.

  • When using External Resource widget, you can't add new values to layer using the widget: values are always discarded (just a return problem).
  • External Resource widget don't store the filter configuration in the project (just a typo in the name of the attribute to store).
  • When the field value is NULL and you are in RelativeStorage mode (whatever mode) and using a Label to display an URL, the relative path is displayed instead of the NULL string (just a return problem).
  • Filter syntax needs to be explained (not so common for a non already Qt developper user): just add a tooltip on the filter LineEdit.
  • DocumentViewerWidth and DocumentViewerHeight are not stored into .qgs project file (just add the two values to widgetfactory writeconfig).
  • RelativeStorage is stored in the project file but it is not correctly read for the configuration (RelativeStorage stores an Int and not a string).

Last bug that I've not fixed in the PR:

  • Whatever DocumentViewerWidth/Height you put into the widget configuration, image is always distorded to the current size of the control in the form.
