RFE 85102: Change "No values available" to non-modal notification

Post by mattgoff » Wed Mar 09, 2016 4:33 pm

When browsing data in the cube viewer, if the selected elements/subsets to not return any data TM1 presents a modal dialog box with the message "No values available." Since it is modal, the user must dismiss the message before continuing. Since this is a common/expected condition, it would be more efficient if this message was simply displayed in the cube viewer data area with no user acknowledgement required to proceed. This would eliminate needing to move the mouse and click to dismiss the error, increasing efficiency.

It does make sense, but I just can't see Perspectives / Architect getting such functional upgrades. CAFE or TM1Web - sure, why not.

It has a rhythm, you can dance to it... I agree with QML, I think there is no chance on earth that it will be implemented in the current space-time continuum but I've voted for it anyway.

Only 5 votes to date, unfortunately.
