#6118 closed defect (fixed)

Mythwelcome / myth context creates multiple identical popups

Reported by: otto at kolsi dot fi Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.22
Component: mythtv Version: head
Severity: low Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: yes


If MythWelcome? is used in remote frontend and backend is not available, there's a new MythUI dialog explaining that master backend cannot be connected. If backend is longer time off-line, there will be multiple of these dialogs when there really should be only one.

At one point when doing some testing/debugging with backend, there were > 150 of these dialogs in remote frontend that all had to be accepted to get to MythWelcome? itself.

If no-one beats be to it, something like this should prevent it:

(In [19660]) Prevent multiple popups. Closes #6118

Reverts [19660]. I don't think this is the correct fix, discarding confirmation dialogs is going to lead to tears as important errors, prompts and the like just disappear as though they never existed. Mythwelcome should be keeping track of the popups it opens if we don't want the same message shown a hundred times.

(In [19728]) Make sure we only show one 'connection has gone away' popup and if the connection is restored while the popup is on screen automatically close it. Fixes #6118

(In [19730]) Missed a couple of files in [19728]. Refs #6118.
