Lack of program feedback

5.56K viewsQuantrix Feedback

I have a model that is linked to a large Oracle database. Most functions I perform seem to require Quantrix to go into a processing mode, which is fine except that it gives absolutely no indication that it is in that mode, it simply appears frozen. Can’t you guys program a spinning wheel or hourglass or something?

Of course, many programs can freeze while displaying their spinning wheel or whatever, but at least directly after you perform some command that requires processing you get the feedback that it might take a while, instead of leaving the program looking like it is ready to perform another task, which just encourages pointless clicking that queues up a bunch of mouseclicks that you may not want performed by the time the processing completes.


And how would I know how close I am to that limit? I’m on 64-bit Windows 7.

Another example is that right now I’ve pressed the Next button in the Data Source Wizard, and there is no purple spinner or any other indication that something is being done, but the whole program was unresponsive until it finally decided to display the next screen after a couple of minutes.
