#2263 new feature-request

Feature Request: Show errors in UI

Component: Unknown Version: 1.3.5

Description

I just ran into bug #2094 and was stumped by it for a while because no errors were ever displayed. Other times other permission and file not found errors happen. These never get displayed to the UI and are only in the log file and often not verbose enough.

I believe the gtk-ui (and web-ui) need ways to notify users of such errors. It should also store them for later viewing since user may not be connected as the event happens.

You're right. The UIs should have a log component of sorts that gets sent ERRORs (or any configurable level) of log messages to it from the daemon. The UI should also alert the user when a new error has been added to the log for their review.

Never got around to adding this properly to the gtkui. Anybody out there want to tackle this?

Aside from someone bringing logging to the UI, there is also my Move Tools plugin that will show most errors that occur when attempting to do a move.
