Default export file names should be more unique
|MEV Launcher v1.3
I am using the brilliant MeV extension. BASE creates the TDMS file nicely for me if it is doesn't exists, then MeV starts as expected when I click on the now colourful icon. So, I decided to look another bioassay set ... click on the less colourful icon to create a TDMS ... pop up ... click next ... error because the bioasay set has the same name (see attached screen dump) as the another bioassay set. There is a work around, select another file name for the current bioassay set.
My guess is that this problem will be seen by many users. I suggest that the default file name should concatenate the bioassay set id to the name (there is no bioassay set id in the analysis tree so maybe job id or something can be used instead). This would make the default name unique for most cases. Of course, the user may change the name manually to something conflicting but can we protect us against that?
