#49 closed defect (wontfix)

File dialogs and "not ready" drives

Description

If the user selects a drive that is not ready (empty floppy or CD) from the file open dialog, the OS/2 critical error box will show up. However, it is necessary to acknowledge "Return error code to program" 9 (nine !!!) times, before it is possible to continue.

My suggested workaround is to generally disable critical error popups by for example adding

DosError?(FERR_DISABLEHARDERR);

to qt_init() in qapplication_pm.cpp.

Actually, I did exactly the same thing (see http://svn.netlabs.org/qt3/browser/trunk/src/kernel/qapplication_pm.cpp?rev=110#L502) but then decided to remove it for the reason stated in the comment above that line. In other words, if you don't like this behavior you should add SET AUTOFAIL=YES to your config.sys.

Closing the defect for now; feel free to reopen if you have good objections.
