It seems as if ETS protects the device configuration parameters, if a download operation is ongoing to this device.
This is a good thing, but in this case the parameters on the side panel are not visible.
The window of e.g. the IP configuration looks like this:
From my point of view the protection of the parameters is very important, so that these can’t be changed during an ongoing download process, but to make them invisible seems not necessary.
I propose to still make them visible, but unchangeable, maybe in a slight grey or similar way, like it is done with the normal Parameter dialogue of the device.
In this case the user could at least see the parameter settings and does not have to wait until the configuration is complete to see e.g. the IP address of the device.
This information might be needed by other processes, like the iT administrator, and it might help the installer, if he can get this information without interrupting or waiting for completeness of the configuration procedure.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
