I realise there are some issues which getting vectors into the GRASS module in QGIS, but is the behaviour i am getting expected?

I have loaded the vector shapefile via GRASS, closed G and reopened the mapset in QGIS, GRASS TOOLS. I can find the vector in Browser tab, but when I launch v.rast.stats I cannot select a vector. The vector selection drop down remains blank.

Is this the behavious people are seeing, or is it a different problem to that which is already documented? Trouble is, it used to work a few months ago on 1.6 and the 1.7 trunk no problems.

good news for the grass plugin... Quote from qgis developer forum - Martin "I am going to provide daily build packages for GRASS 6.4, 6.5 and 7.0 for OSGeo4W within few next days." Martin – Brad Nesom Sep 10 '11 at 5:03


I found I have to add the vector to the canvas, somehow it is already displaying so I think the GRASS plugin could see it?? Anyways fixed now.

Yes, that's the case for all GRASS plugin functions. – underdark Sep 10 '11 at 14:03
