I have been struggling for one hour with this simple problem :

I have a raster layer. I would like to display the label and not only the band value when I use the "Identify Features" button.

Is it possible?

Thank you



QGis 1.8.0-Lisboa ; Windows 7

Would you like to create a lasting text label for selected grid cells in the raster? – Simbamangu Oct 23 '12 at 11:21

I thinks its two different things..according to me you can get only band details.. You can not attach attribute data to raster file like Satellite image,topo-sheet etc.

So you will get only band details...
