Description Dik Takken 2005-07-26 09:55:27 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.4.1)
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages
OS:                Linux

When using Kommander dialogs, it often happens that the dialog needs to do some processing triggered by some action of the user. While this processing takes place, the dialog is frozen and all user input is ignored.

This is a Bad Thing, because the user does not know that the dialog is busy, it just seems to get stuck from time to time. Please set a busy mousepointer or something when running time-consuming (> 0.1 second?) script-widgets to make clear to the user that the dialog is busy.
