Info panel or tab for user feedback

Information not requiring immediate user interaction should not be displayed as pop-up (modal) dialogs, but in a separate panel. The former interrupts the user's workflow.
cf. KDE & Windows human interface guidelines.

you mean the multiple selection dialog or the fixed table dialog? They could be added to the parameters dialog somehow...

#3 Updated by Camilo Polymeris about 12 years ago

Those too, perhaps, but I meant stuff like failure messages. E.g. if a parameter is missing, no dialog should pop up, but a message displayed in a panel/statusbar and the missing parameters highlighted.

This brings us to a related issue: I think, there should be more subclasses of GeoAlgorithmExcecutionException (if there are, where?) to better describe what went wrong (missing parameter, value out of bounds, unsupported format, etc.), so that the GUI may react accordingly, informing the user.

Ok. I have implemented something like I imagined. See attachment. Also errors are just shown in the log (in red): no more popups.
What's your opinion?

This is would be very useful I think.
