Feature request #6255
Add button to force recalculating stats of raster layers
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:|
|Easy fix?:||No||Copied to github as #:||15561|
Currently QGIS relies on mean and sd values on the
GTif if present for stretching based on sd. Sometimes
this information can be wrong and gdalinfo -stats does
not force recalculating stats (see #5035).
The user should be able to force QGIS recalculating stats,
probably a button in Properties/Style would be a good option

Hello, bug triage...
isn't it the case when you use the "Load" button and the Extent and accuracy options in Raster Style tab ?
For me, triggering the "Load" button recalculate the stats of the raster layer.
Can you confirm this ?

The stats are certainly updated if the extent is changed, but
cannot check if they do in the case the extent remains that of the whole
raster object. I realised this problem 3 y ago because it happened
that I had a geotif with wrong stats information that were not updated
in qgis. I think you must check the code to know if this is still the case:
does qgis recalculate stats or does it rely on whatever is written in the geotif?
