Description

Currently, the PostGIS Layers dialog can take a long time to be ready to use if it has to process a lot of tables or views without clearly defined geometry types. The Add button is disabled until all such tables/views are processed.

Really, there's no reason to force users to wait for this dialog to process every last table/view. If the tables/views the user needs already have detected geometry types, then the user should be able to select them and click Add even if other tables/views are being processed. And if the user happened to Add a table/view that still doesn't have the geometry type discovered, the dialog should abort detection on all other tables/views and just process the selected ones that still need discovery.

Proposal: Add is enabled/clickable as soon as at least one table/view has a detected type, and if I double-click on a table/view or select Add after selecting 1 or more tables/views, then the detecting stops (except for selected tables/views with undetected geometry types), and the selected tables are added as layers.

Sorry, I didn't understand what the feedback state meant.

This issue is not a support request. I am aware of the stop button. This issue is pointing out unnecessary delays that could be eliminated by improving the UI.

Please reopen.
