Calculation Finished Message

Post by janschreier » Fri May 15, 2015 11:10 am

Hi smartPLS-Team,

I'd suggest that you put a "all calculations are finished" message in bold at the end of all other calculation messages. At the moment you only have a "[successful]" in the tab-name which is easily overlooked. Also I'd think you should be clearer what pressing "Close" does in this dialogue when a calculation is running. I suggest either renaming this button "close and abort" or asking via a pop-up "Closing this window aborts the calculation. Continue?"

Hope that helps!
Jan

Hi Jan,
the "all calculations are finished" message is a good suggestion and I think we will find a good way to add something like this.

The "Close" Button does not abort the algorithm in most cases. If you run for example a bootstrapping and close the window, you will get the result of that calculation anyway after the bootstrapping is finished. If you want to abort a calculation you have to click on "Stop Calculation".

hi Jan-Michael,

thanks for clarifying this. Getting results later has never occured to me but then I was maybe not patient enough. In that case an option to unhide the window would be helpful. Just a thought, I got used to the current behaviour ;)

BR! Jan
