Save As Dialog Boxes Incorrectly Display "Open" Button

The following dialog boxes should show a "Save" button rather than an "Open" button.

  • File->Save Project As...
  • File->Save as Image...

This is observed with trunk r5105, built with Qt 4.1.1

#1 Updated by Tim Baggett - over 16 years ago

I have attached a patch to qgisapp.cpp which I believe fixes this issue for both "save project as" and "save as image" dialog boxes, in addition to two another minor fixes.

  • The dialog box is configured to open a file by default. By setting the accept mode to AcceptSave, the "Open" button is now changed to "Save".
  • The dialog box is now configured to confirm if the user has selected an existing file to be overwritten. The code that previously performed this check and displayed a warning in fileSaveAs() was deleted in favor of the Qt confirmation. There was no corresponding check being performed in saveMapAsImage() as far as I could find.
  • The fileSaveAs() dialog box title is changed to match the existing title in the saveMapAsImage() dialog box.

A potential issue I see is that when the user is prompted to confirm overwriting an existing file, the titles are too long and are truncated in the confirmation dialog box.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Applied patch in revisiont 4aaf2460 (SVN r5108)

Note that the File->save dialog option still shows 'open' instead of 'save'.

Many thanks for this patch!
