#3 Updated by Gavin Macaulay - over 15 years ago
- Resolution set to fixed
- Status changed from Open to Closed
Fixed in SVN 05433ca8 (SVN r5647).
Problem was that under Xwin32, showing a hidden dialog box didn't work. Whether this is a Qt4 or an Xwin32 problem, I don't know.
Commit 05433ca8 (SVN r5647) is a workaround to the problem where whenever the dialog box is closed, it is deleted rather than just hidden. Hence when the user does another identify, a new dialog box is created to show the results rather than showing the hidden one.
