Feature request #5346
Have layer or rule base class greyed out when not visible due to scale dependent rendering
|Target version:||Future Release - Nice to have|
|Platform version:||Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No|
It would be nice if layer title or icon could show display status of a layer.
It could be greyed out and Italic, or have a special icon if current display is out of visible range. Adding a right click option "Zoom to visible scale" would be even nicer.
When rule bases class are submitted to min or max scale, only affected classes in current scale should greyed out.
Users opening a qgs project are sometimes lost because they don't see data listed in maplayer registry.. Some webclients already do that too. Mapinfo show a pink marker when submitted to scale conditionnal rendering.
All the best

I must disagree here. Most GIS tools have such a feature (include webmapping ones), and that shouldn't be heavy computing.
Some show a "eye symbol", some italic wrinting + tooltip. We still need it.
Moreover, some use cases make symbols disappear (on expressions), and a user can't associate a missing legend with a zoom display threshold.
