AIS targetlist

I want to change my AIS targetlist permanently.
When I manually change the sequence in Name/Distance/SOG, the next time I re-start OCPN the sequence is default again.

Is it possible?

Re: AIS targetlist

You can post on flyspray.

If you can do programming you could submit a pull request implementing the feature

Programming is something I can not.
I know how to change something in the config file. Maybe there is a solution for the time being? I I only know where and what in the config file.

Hi Aart,

In the opencpn.ini I see these lines about AIS Target List.


AISTargetListPerspective=name=AISTargetList;captio n=AIS target list;state=2103265;dir=4;layer=0;row=0;pos=0;prop= 100000;bestw=700;besth=150;minw=-1;minh=-1;maxw=-1;maxh=-1;floatx=50;floaty=50;floatw=1367;floath=438
AISTargetListRange=40
AISTargetListSortColumn=2
bAISTargetListSortReverse=0
AISTargetListColumnSpec=103;128;96;70;49;157;84;42 ;56;42;42;

Maybe changing something here can help?
I found out that in the AIS Target List the "auto sort" was active in column "Call". That is the third column. So probably the first column (Trk) is there just for the bacon and beans (as a fellow Dutchman you'll know what I mean).

In my AIS Target List the column "Call" is column nr. 3 and the column "Range" is column nr. 9. So I did a little test and changed AISTargetListSortColumn=2 to AISTargetListSortColumn=8.

I saved the ini-file and restarted OpenCPN. Now in the AIS Target List the "auto sort" is active in the column "Range". And that means the targets closest to me are on top of the list.

Not quite what you wanted, but maybe it's a start.

Re: AIS targetlist

Roel,

I found these lines too but as long as I am not sure what all these lines means I'll do nothing.

I studied the line with:

AISTargetListColumnSpec=103;128;96;70;49;157;84;42 ;56;42;42;

but because the last two ones has the same value I think the solution is not there.

Who can tell me where the solution is?

Re: AIS targetlist



Oops... please forget my "magnificent" tip about changing the ini file to change the sort-order. No need for that. Just found out that clicking on the column has the same effect.

I will try to experimet a bit with the AISTargetListColumnSpec. If I find something useful I will report.

Re: AIS targetlist

AISTargetListColumnSpec is just the width of the columns. I give up...

Re: AIS targetlist

to find the answer, use the source...

The column width is a big hint, you can probably find where it is used after grepping the variable name you grep from your column width field name. Once you can see how this value is applied and retrieved from the actual list control, it should be obvious if the column to sort by and what direction is also saved to the config ( probably not )

From here actually implementing it should be fairly straightforward. Maybe a second config variable could contain the sort column, and whether to sort ascending or descending.

Working with the source code? For me that is a step to far .

In the config file I can change the with of the columns. But how can I change the "content" of a column?

Now that you mention it.... yes, i did enlist a couple of years ago but I completely forgot about that. Too busy sailing....

Unfortunately I can't make it next Saturday but I will try to visit to that forum more frequently. Good luck with your workshop!
