I'd rather prefer to have this as a setting somewhere instead of being
interrupted in the search by a popup. Just as in web applications, in
regular applications popup windows should be avoided, if possible.
I think this could be a setting/option that should be saved in the
project file, either
* per dataset
* per column
* project setting
* global setting (already possible now)
In one of the recent check-ins from yesterday or today, Jürgen Fischer
added a setting in "Options" --> "General" --> "Representation of NULL
values" which allows for arbitrary strings to mean "NULL". One can use
NULL in his own language, or as a number -9999, or whatever one likes.
I think you should use this setting for the NULL searches and don't ask
the user each and every time he is searching for NULL. This setting
doesn't change frequently, so I think it is ok as a global setting, or
maybe also a per project or dataset/column setting which can overwrite
the global setting.
Just my two cents,
Thanks for working on it!
