Uniform way of adding layers after analyses

Added by Paolo Cavallini over 6 years ago. Updated 9 months ago.

Easy fix?:No


Various commands and plugins have different methods for adding a layer after the analysis is run:
  • a checkbox "Add to canvas" in the analysis window
  • a popup "Do you want to add to canvas?" after the end

We should have a standard method, and utilize it consistently.

Hello, bug triage...

do we have a document somewhere that states what are the rules for adding layers after an analysis ?

For Processing, it seems there is a uniform method: by default the option "Open output file after running algorithm" is checked so after any analysis made with a Processing algorithm, the layer will be loaded in the canvas ( but user can uncheck this option ).

In 2015, I think that a pop-up window will be very annoying ! So the Processing rule seems to be the good one for me...
