UI: "done" messages in windows when command executed

Post by boicottms » Sun Mar 18, 2018 12:35 pm

Hello,
some dialogs windows should change state/buttons when the action is finished. To better explain, as an example, when I download images from the camera, I have a window where I can choose pictures to download and I have two buttons: OK and Cancel. Once the import is finished I still have the same window, those same those two buttons and I tend to click on OK (meaning that I've finished) so downloading another copy of the pictures.
I wish It changes to something like "DONE" - actually I wish the all window to change to make me understand that the process is finished.
It's the same on many other windows (IPTC changes, transformation, etc...)
Thank you

cday

Shouldn't the window simply close, I'm not sure?
