Waiting animation on character sheet generation in the tab

Description

My computer is not recent any more and it takes some time for it to compute the character sheet (in the character sheet tab). It also takes a little time for the preview in the summary to be calculated if there is too much process going on.

It would be good to have a sort of waiting icon like a clock to indicate that the sheet is being generated; it can help the user understand that PCGen is not stuck.

Hi Kim,

Before, the Icon and Status bar stayed in place. Now after loading, it gets hidden. If we could have it always displayed that would be ideal.

Cheers,

Hi Kim,

Try it out in 6.0.0 or 6.0.1. When you load sources, you get the status message and the progress bar showing. Once the load is finished, yes they do disappear, but what is retained is the icon in the bottom right corner. This will be a green tick (all ok), a yellow exclamation mark (data warnings) or a red cross (errors). See the attached screen shot from after the load is finished.

I think what it is doing is after the task is finished it is leaving the status bar visible but just clearing the message and progress bar.
