#1539 option to disable JS-Windows for errors


Plse add an option to redisplay the "old" error-div if sth. failed.
If you have a long (text) sql-query failing, you get an totally undersized js-error dialog which is hard to read & closes on an accidential click.

I suggest:
add an div on top of the page, containing the error, have the query-section (with inline,...) under it. Having this, you can see the error on full monitor width, second you can change the query to make it work & maybe you can put a structured output above it. Sometimes only a quote or brace is missing, which you must find.

    no, I'm not talking about JS-Errors. I'm talking about SQL-Errors in the query.
    If you mistype sth. e.g. forgotten a closing brace.
    You can see 2 cases:
    1. the query is executed, the page is redisplayed, you get an red error box in full monitor width above the query.
    2. a very small js error box is displayed via ajax.

    what i want is the old style 1. choice back. Since the js box is
    1. ways to small
    2. always placed directly over the query box, so you can't read your query & find the error on the same. You have to reexecute the same erroneous query a few times.

    The old style is ways better, even if you think everything has to be fancy & dynamic and nothing should be done static serversided.

    I believe this issue is already taken care of in new release. So it can be closed.
