User-friendly interruption of long-time operations

Reported by: andrew_b Owned by: andrew_b
Priority: minor Milestone: 4.8.13
Component: mc-core Version: master
Keywords: Cc: gotar@…
Blocked By: Blocking:

Description (last modified by andrew_b) (diff)

A proposal:

A long-time operation should be visualized using dialog window with some useful message and 'Dismiss' (or 'Interrupt', 'Break', 'Abort') button. It will allow to interrupt this operation very easy and obviously.

Implemented instance is calculation of directory size.

Other possible instances are:

  • search in editor and viewer;
  • open large file in editor and viewer;
  • directory reading in some slow VFS;
  • something else.

i'd use "cancel" and no confirmation for read-only operations and "abort" with a confirmation dialog ("abort" and "resume") for writing operations (actually, this should also offer "delete" and "keep" like the file copy error dialog).

there is two branches: 2136_status_window and 2136_interription_window. Which branch still actual?

Replying to slavazanko:

there is two branches: 2136_status_window and 2136_interription_window. Which branch still actual?

There is no branch 2136_interruption_window. 2136_status_window is actual.
