Description

It would be nice if we could have a status indicator when loading a
qgis-project. Some of my project have 20+ layers and when loading such a
project, QGIS seems to do nothing for a couple seconds (up to half a
minute).

Some of my users then think that the program hangs or crashed.

I think it would be great to have some sort of indication of what QGIS is
doing while loading a project, telling the user which dataset it is
currently loading, rendering or working on:

Some of the options:
  • Write a message in the statusbar to indicate which layer qgis is currently working on
  • a dialogue displaying the progress
  • a progress bar (either in status bar or separate dialogue)
  • a list of layers to load and a status indicator to tell which layer is
    already loaded and which layers are still pending

Thanks for considering to deal with this enhancement!
