Currently the module execution freezes the main GUI.
Execution of the modules should not be done on the main thread.
#6 Updated by Camilo Polymeris about 8 years ago
- File mt3.diff added
This weeks diff. Includes mostly GUI improvements (percentage, feedback and a close button) and some attempts at making the iteration code work. I'll update the blog at sextante-gsoc.blogspot.com with more details, but here some technical considerations:
- Am getting crashes with the (working thread) iteration code, apparently accesses to QPixmap, but haven't been able to find the source of the problem.
- Using "new-style" PyQT slots and signals. Is that ok?
Note that the cancel button only disconnects the finished signal, since the backends don't support cancelling. One could just terminate them, but that might be problematic (file access and such).
