[jitsi-dev] add/remove contact while offline results in misleading message/exception


#1

Please see attached screenshots. Attempting to add a new contact or
remove an existing contact while you're offline results in exceptions,
instead of a more appropriate "You can not do that while offline -
please connect first, then try again" message.

Build 4106 on Ubuntu 32-bit.

Cheers

Alex

Hi Alex,

Indeed, the message is not very appropriate. Could you please enter an issue for this one?

Cheers,

Hi

Please note it's not just the message, but also the need to catch the
exception before it escapes to the user.
