When altering a table, if no changes are made and the Apply button is clicked the 'Message' in the 'Output' panel stays as 'Preparing...'

How to repeat:
- Open SQL editor and drill down into a database to view tables.
- Right click on table and select 'Alter Table...'
- Without making any changes, click the 'Apply' button.
- 'Message' column in 'Output' panel stays as 'Preparing...'

Suggested fix:
Change the message to indicate that no changes are to be made or disable the Apply button until a change can be applied.

Bug still present in 5.2.42. Additional Information: As soon as I click on the "preparing" message it shows "No changes detected".

Fixed as of the upcoming Workbench 5.2.44, and here's the changelog entry:

 After choosing "Alter Table", pressing "Apply" would cause 
 MySQL Workbench to display "Preparing..." in the output panel, 
 but it now now displays "No changes detected."

Thank you for the bug report.
