Bug report #9436

QGIS locks up while waiting for WMS response

Added by Jonathan Moules about 10 years ago. Updated about 5 years ago.

Category:Web Services clients/WMS
Affected QGIS version:master Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:end of life
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:18030


For whatever reason, my WMS server isn't responding to queries at all (timeout).
To replicate: Requires Non-functioning WMS.

1) Click "Connect"
2) Wait.

QGIS does a number of bad things here:
a) The entire interface locks up.
b) The only button that seems to work is the "X" icon in the top right of the WMS dialog.
c) QGIS is using 100% of one core while waiting. Why?
d) Even if I close the dialog using the icon in (b) - the WMS log says "Download of capabilities failed; Operation cancelled" - however QGIS remains locked up for a while after this.

QGIS - 5192e8d - Windows 7 64 bit.
