I’m working on an app and I’ve been scouring the development guides and I’ve been trying out apps to see how they report errors back to users and I’m at a loss as to what the proper way to do this is.
I’ve seen the following ways errors / warnings are reported back to users:
- a black bar at the top with small white text
- a new page with the error message in theme colors (usually after Cancel/Accept Dialog)
- a notification
- a variety of other ways
but no single one really stands out as the most used one… maybe the white on black bar at the top, which I don’t really like since it’s easy to miss.
Can I get some opinions on this? (And example code would be welcome as well.)
My preference would be a rectangle centered on the screen floating over the current page, but that would yet be one more different way and I do not even know if it is possible in QML.
