Improvement of the display of error messages

Error message

An error messages is composed by:

  • User message (if the case is managed in the code)
  • Technical information, in particular, to guide the developer in the code to locate the reason for the message

Separation of user / tech info message

The dialog box returning the error message is composed by:

  • A Message tab containing the user message part.
  • A Advanced tab containing the technical info.

If the configuration is not managed in the code, in this case there will be no user error message but only a generic message "Failed execution"

Example of an error message non-managed (so any user message)
“Message” tab “Advanced” tab

The output window

In the output window, the same filter was applied. The technical information is no longer displayed to note pollute this window intended to inform the user.

Warning messages now appear in orange and are also stacked (see next block).

Warning management

The warnings are stored and accessible via the icon (bottom right):

By clicking on the icon, the warning list is unstacked.

Each warning is:

  • editable by clicking on it
  • can be deleted by clicking on

By editing the warning, a dialog box is opened with the user message.

The tab « Advanced » contains techniclal informations of the warning which allows givining necessary indications for the developer ,and the support team.

Flux3D.log and files

All operations done in Flux give a result. These results visible in the output window are saved in the Flux3D.log file.

The full details (the contents of the Flux3D.log + the information contained in the "advanced" tabs of the error / warning messages) are present in the file

Best practice:

Usually, the Flux3D.log file is sent to the Support team when the user encounters a problem. We advice you to send the Flux3D .report to give all details.
