Description Sebb 2016-05-03 21:01:20 UTC
At present if the source file for the help page cannot be opened, JMeter displays a blank page and a separate dialog box with the error. On my system the box does not get focus and may be hidden, so it's not clear what has happened.

Either the dialog should be forced to the front, or the error could be displayed on the page instead of the help text

Display errror message in Help pane

As proposed by sebb, the error message is displayed inside the help pane and the modal dialog is removed.

Should this be added before 3.0?
Comment 2 Sebb 2016-05-04 19:44:15 UTC
I would say yes.

I don't think there is any risk in doing so.
Comment 3 Philippe Mouawad 2016-05-04 19:47:19 UTC
Ok for addition also
