Bug report #4101
No indication of the problem when opening a project with an unsupported layer
|Affected QGIS version:||master||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||All||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||end of life|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||No||Copied to github as #:||14083|
Running trunk, when adding an existing project which includes a layer that QGIS cannot load (e.g. an .ecw layer, when the gdal-ecw driver or the required erdas libraries are not present), this layer will be displayed in the "Handle bad layers" dialogue, but its filepath is shown in green, and there is nothing to tell the user why the file can't be loaded.
It needs to somewhere have a message like the one displayed when you try to add an unsupported file as a layer: "xxx is not a valid or recognised data source".
