What were you doing?

Went to webcam at the settings window
Clicked on the "Test" button for the snapshot a few times and it added many loading animations to the button, and then opened 4 windows with the snapshot one over the other

What did you expect to happen?

Disallow clicking on the button more than once before the action was complete

What happened instead?

The button was enabled while loading

Hi @orc886,

It looks like there is some information missing from your bug report that will be needed in order to solve the problem. Read the Contribution Guidelines which will provide you with a template to fill out here so that your bug report is ready to be investigated (I promise I'll go away then too!).

If you did not intend to report a bug but wanted to request a feature or brain storm about some kind of development, please take special note of the title format to use as described in the Contribution Guidelines.

Please do not abuse the bug tracker as a support forum - if you have a question or otherwise need some kind of help or support refer to the Mailinglist or the G+ Community instead of here.

Also make sure you are at the right place - this is the bug tracker of the official version of OctoPrint, not the Raspberry Pi image OctoPi nor any unbundled third party OctoPrint plugins or unofficial versions. Make sure too that you have read through the Frequently Asked Questions and searched the existing tickets for your problem - try multiple search terms please.

I'm marking this one now as needing some more information. Please understand that if you do not provide that information within the next two weeks (until 2017-05-16 10:30 UTC) I'll close this ticket so it doesn't clutter the bug tracker. This is nothing personal, so please just be considerate and help the maintainers solve this problem quickly by following the guidelines linked above. Remember, the less time the devs have to spend running after information on tickets, the more time they have to actually solve problems and add awesome new features. Thank you!

Best regards,
~ Your friendly GitIssueBot

PS: I'm just an automated script, not a human being, so don't expect any replies from me :) Your ticket is read by humans too, I'm just not one of them.

Don't allow multiple parallel webcam tests
Disable button when a test is already active. Also have spinner
defined centrally and only made visible on active test.

Should hopefully give better feedback to impatient users ;)
