If the Identify tool is used on a WMS layer but the request fails, the returned error message shows nothing useful.

It's probably a simple problem with the error messages not being passed back properly from QgsHttpConnection and QgsWmsProvider.

the same happens here, when using a proxy:

"Could not understand the response. The wms provider said:

SVN checkout date 3 July 2006, full compilation, Proxy used, RHEL4 Linux

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from In Progress to Closed

I saw a useful error message come back in the HEAD build yesterday, which prompted my lodging of enhancement request #196.

Therefore I must have lodged a fix to this without noticing (!). Closing accordingly.
