Availability of settings info to restrictive

Reported by: markba Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 1.3.6 Keywords: read options

Description

When a VM is running or saved in a snapshot state, settings cannot be modified. This is understandable because those changes can only take effect when the VM is actually booted.

Most info about settings is available in the read only tab sheet "Details" in the VirtualBox GUI. However, detailed info like connected virtual disks cannot be reached because the option dialog is not opened.

My suggestion: make this info available (as if the VM is switched off), i.e. open the options dialog, but grey out all fields, indicating that all options are not writeable.
