I like to make some checks before a custom edit dialog is shown via the "viewForCollectionSettings" callback. For example:
if not prefs.accountStatus then
LrDialogs.message('You are not logged in...','You need to login before you can get access','info')
I had expected that the dialog is closed when an exception is fired but it wasn't. Is this a bug or a feature? If it is a feature: how can I close the edit dialog, manually?
Thanks and regards,
It's a known bug, unfortunately. (No need to log it, as it is already in the system.)
