Typical users need to open and load data from a variety of file formats. Often, files users try to open have problems that prevent IGB from reading them. Currently, users have a hard time understanding and debugging their files because IGB's error messages upon failure to open or load are confusing or inconsistent.
Let's implement error-handling code that is consistent across all files types and which provides the user with good information about what when wrong when IGB tries to open a file where the format does not fit the expectation.
- relates to
IGBF-517 Add additional information about why a file is unable to load
I made a few changes to the error formatting: https://bitbucket.org/lorainelab/integrated-genome-browser/pull-requests/757/igbf-1515-2-additional-formatting-of-file/diff
Issue:- To provide more informative error message when a file cannot be opened in IGB
Provide meaningful message by fetching the root cause from the stack trace and provide a link to IGB help page
(Error files used for testing are attached to the ticket)
Drag and drop a broken file into IGB get the informative message.
Please check the attached test results
