Feature request #4306

Uniform way of adding layers after analyses

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...

Agreed, we should make it clear the Processing approach is the one to follow, also in plugins.

Now (QGIS 3) core plugins have been moved to Processing, so probably this ticket is useless.
