#2898 new enhancement

GUI improvments for long list of mapsets or long mapset names (Location / Mapset selection)

Reported by: sbl Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: normal Milestone: 7.6.2
Component: wxGUI Version: unspecified

CPU: Unspecified Platform: All

Description

In order to be able handle a long list of mapsets or long mapset names better in the GUI startup (location / mapset selection) two enhancements might be useful:

1) For long lists of mapsets in shared GRASS GIS DBs it would be nice if one could filter the list of mapsets to "mapsets owned by me" (e.g. using a tickbox), as these are the only ones the user technically can use for working anyway...

2) If one has long mapset names it would be an advantage if the user was able to change the distribution of horizontal space used for the "mapset box" and the "locations box", meaning, that the user can make the mapset box wider if the location contains mapsets with longer names...

You can already stretch the window horizontally and the boxes stretch as well. This behavior seems good enough for me.

Yes, this seems to be no issue on a high resolution screen. On a low resolution screen (remote desktop window (VNC)) it was impossible to distinguish the mapsets with relatively long names / prefixes. I understand that this is probably too much of an edge case and with a high bandwidth I can likly get around this by requesting a connection with a higher resolution. So, sorry for not double checking on a local installation...

As for the filtering part: The inaccessible mapsets are already greyed out. Those where I am not the owner cannot even be selected. In locations with many mapsets (from different users) it would make the mapset selection more convenient (and probably lead to less confusion among less experienced users) if esp. the mapsets from other users, could be filtered from the list...
