#1087 closed enhancement (fixed)

wxGUI: Load multiple maps

Reported by: neteler Owned by: grass-dev@…

Description

Suggestion: in oder to simplify the "import" of several maps into the layer tree, it might be good to reassign the d.rast/d.vect icons in the GUI to a different dialog which enables also multi-map selection (CTRL-left-mouse) - similar to the bulk import.

Closing as fixed.

wxGUI (in both 6 and 7) has now 'Add multiple raster or vector...' button in toolbar. Selection (filtering) is based on regular expression. Shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+L.

Possible enhancements (create new ticked if you want them):

  • Selection done by Ctrl, Shift and mouse. (Now done by checkboxes. Maybe checkboxes fits better to regular expression based filtering.)
  • Selection (filtering) done expression containing wildcards similar to bash (e.g. use '*' (wildcard) instead of '.*' (regular expression))
  • Simplify the selection of vector (and 3D rasters) by different buttons, separated menu entries or by using the recently used value. (Now type raster is always the default choice.)
