#930 closed bug (fixed)
SPIT does allow to connect to PostGIS
|Reported by:||msieczka||Owned by:||nobody|
|Priority:||major: does not work as expected||Milestone:|
|Keywords:||pgsql postgis import||Cc:|
|Must Fix for Release:||Yes||Platform:||Debian|
|Platform Version:||ubuntu 7.10 amd64||Awaiting user input:||no|
In SPIT I have setup the connection. The "Test Connect" says: "Connection to <database name here> was successfull". However, the "Connect" button in SPIT is greyed-out, inactive.
The same connection setup that SPIT refuses to use works OK for "Add a PostGIS Layer" dialog.
If in SPIT I choose a shapefile and press OK anyway, even though it seems I'm not connected (the "Connect" button is greyed-out all the time) and press OK, SPIT segfaults like described in the bug #865 (reported 2 months ago).

- remove disabled connect button (spit automatically connects on OK)
First of all it's great you found time to fix SPIT. Very much appreciated!
Regarding the connect button removal however I have doubts:
- Actually now SPIT automatically connects right away on it's startup, not on OK later. This forces and arbitrary connection to be chosen by default, if you have more available.
- A missing connect button makes SPIT interface different from add PostGIS layer dialog for no reason; each such difference makes it harder for newcomers and QGIS teachers (they ask me "But why do the two differ?", I say "Just because.". Neither me nor they are satisfied with the reply :) ).
BTW - SPIT fails to ask for password if the given connection does not have one saved. It just yields an error "Connection failed - Check settings and try again". Same as "Test connection" button. Could they instead pop up a dialog for password, like the Add PostGIS Layer dialog does after pressing the connect button?

patch to apply after string freeze
comment:5 by , 15 years ago
the patch patch fixes the connection problem. As we are currently in string freeze this will not make it into 0.9.2.

I'll reopen the ticket so it's not missed when the patch can be applied.

Milestone Version 0.9.2 deleted
Replying to msieczka:
I have the exact same experience on ubuntu 7.10 amd64, running 0.9.2 w/pgsql 8.2.6+postgis. I can connect to the database, no problem w/test connection, but not in SPIT. When trying to go ahead anyway, I also experience a crash.
