Feature request #4438
Option to add datasources icons beside layer names in the TOC
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||wontfix|
QGIS can use a large number of datasources: file based rasters, shapes, spatialite, postgis, postgis rasters, grass, wms ,wfs, etc.
In large projects it is sometimes hard to remember what kind of datasource a layer is.
It would be nice to have an option in the general options of QGIS to allow the user get a small icon beside the layer name in the TOC, representing the type of datasource the layer is.
