#1206 new defect

Incorrect (and confusing) presentation of dQ from data in instrumental smearing section

Reported by: butler Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: SasView 4.2.1
Component: SasView Keywords:
Cc: Work Package: McSAS Integration Project


Selecting use dQ Data currently displays dQ high and dQ low (for pinhole data at least), However dQ low is not labelled while dQ high is labelled as dQ[%].

Prior to SasView version 4.1.0, the two values were labeled dQ high and dQ low. In 4.1.0 a change was made to the custom pinhole to be useful by asking for a dQ/Q in percent (see #850). The current labels probably were introduced accidentally in that work. However the proper fix should be to change the values presented to be dQ/Q[%] (as one label suggests) and then fix the labels to make it clear what is presented: dQ/Q low[%] and dQ/Q high[%].

From @smk78 in ticket #850

The codebase (see and seems to have some infrastructure for computing %dQ.
I think displaying the %dQ is probably of more use to the user, and we could flag "crazy" values by turning the reporting box(es) red or similar. But exactly what we report probably needs some discussion.
