Re: Beta Test / Technical

I'm using the present Beta...so that's why I post here. But it's not a critical fix or bug.

now, here's an oddment but the new menus ...how to explain?- Right-click anywhere on your chart- you could type "c" and highlight Chart Position and then RightArrow and then type "d" or "c" ...etc. as per usual Winblows usage, the first letter is the shortcut.
well, These work! I don't think they did work as well before in earlier versions. I think that it's a handy tool that I am pleased to see! Of course, it doesn't work when there are 2 first letters the same... hmm.
It follows, that when the first letter can't be used, another one is that doesn't conflict.
So it follows that to save the user guessing ,(another tiny bch) these "should be" underlined in Windows when Windows is set to show the underlining.

I'm likely the only one left that still sets things up this way and maybe it has been changed since XP.

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Hello. This message for OpenCPN programmers.
I have discover source code and (how it's seems to me) found some mistakes that may lead to crash the executing program.

1. In many places there is next code:

strncpy( buf, value.mb_str(), vallen );

In same time wxWidgets documentation says:
wxString::mb_str() converts the string to the encoding used by the current locale and so CAN RETURN AN EMPTY STRING (NULL) if the string contains characters not representable in it.

I'm using russian S57 charts and program raise access violation error at address 00000000 in strncpy.

2. Source file gshhs.cpp. Constructor:

Projection::Projection()

doesn't initialize class members W, H, XC, CY, xW and others. Calling Projection::updateBoundaries() (from Projection::SetScale) raise floating point overflow error at

...atan( exp( (double) ( degToRad( PY - H / ( 2 * scale ) ) )...

because H does not defined.

3. Source file mygeom.cpp. Method PolyTessGeo::PolyTessGeoTri.

Variable ntpa is calculated and geoPt allocated:

pt *geoPt = (pt*)malloc((npta + 1) * sizeof(pt));

Then not all pt will be assigned because of

if((fabs(x-x0) > EQUAL_EPS) || (fabs(y-y0) > EQUAL_EPS))
{
ppt->x = x;
ppt->y = y;

ppt++;
}
else
cntr[0]--;

and later the for-loop:

for(ip = 1 ; ip < npta + 1 ; ip++)
{
if(TESS_HORZ == tess_orient)
{
ty = geoPt[ip].y;
tx = geoPt[ip].x;
}
...

will raise floating point error.

Thanks for attention. Serge Gavrilov (aka AltMonk).

Some changes, possibly affecting your problem, are included.
If your problem isn't solved, I'll enter it in the tracker.
Hopefully it can be sorted out before the next stable release!

When I download and try the 3.1.915, I get an error message: failure to initialize user interface. So, the version will not open at all.

Sounds like you're on Mac. In the beta threads you can see that that was a problem on 3.1.915, and one of the reasons for 3.1.919 to be released instead. But nobody has done a Mac build for 3.1.919 yet I am afraid...

Serious fault in Route Manager which crashes OpenCPN when trying to convert Track to Route. Win 7.

That gets fixed automatically as a byproduct of the new tracking code coming for next beta.

mikepeter451...

Please don't shout.
We tend to automatically ignore posts written in all upper case.

However, we know lots about OpenCPN. Calmly tell us what system you are running, and what happens in detail when you start OpenCPN.

Thanks
Dave

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Hi everyone,

been running OpenCPN for two years now, great program, thank you!

In a couple of occasion and for no apparent reason, the toolbox opens minimized and there is no way to restore it to the right size (see screenshot).

Right clicking it, dragging etc, nothing works, the only solution I found was to close OpenCPN and restart it.

Is this a known bug?

Re: Beta Test / Technical

A BIG shortcoming with OpenCPN is that the track of a previous trip can not be exported
or copied with ALL the data displayed in the Track Properties window.
All that is saved are the date/time,WPT # and lat/lon. Furthermore,there is no way to export/import a Track in .kml format.

All other navigation software saves ALL the details of a past Track for re-study and
use at a later time.

If you right click the first line of the data listing in the Track Properties panel,you can
copy ALL the data in the panel and paste it to OpenOffice in landscape format.

Strange why it has not been included????

Re: Beta Test / Technical

May be reported already in one of the 60!! pages. But just in case not, crash very repeatable on my system...

OpenCPN beta 3.1.919, on Win XP SP3, serial port configured, but no (USB) serial port there. Charts config'd CM93v2 and a few raster charts.

All I do is add a new route, just 3 waypoints, then delete the route (right click, Route, Delete Route). Crashes every time when I exit the program.

If I add the route, exit the program, start it back up, and delete the route, exit the program, no crash. Something about creating a route and then immediately deleting it seems to be causing the crash on exit. If you need a crash dump let me know.

SoggyPaws
Thanks for reporting.
This bug is already fixed in the master, https://github.com/OpenCPN/OpenCPN/commits/master
See this fix
https://github.com/OpenCPN/OpenCPN/c...78c2bd7236f922

Bug reporting for 3.1.919 is getting real messy. This forum is good for
discussions, but not for bug reporting.
The original thread about 3.1.919 is here OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.919 Released

Proposed patch for beter GPS device selection

I wanted to propose a patch for devices selection, but pushed it the wrong thread.

Not willing to do an even bigger error with a cross post. I only push the link here: OpenCPN Version 3.0.2 Release

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Good day,

Compiled 3.0.2 without problems but there is a difficulty with 3.1.xxx.

Cmake-gui and VSE 2010 were used to set things up.

When I try to build in VSE I get the following error:

1>------ Build started: Project: opencpn, Configuration: Release Win32 ------
1> Building Custom Rule C:/OpenCPN/CMakeLists.txt
1> CMake does not need to re-run because C:\OpenCPN\build\CMakeFiles\generate.stamp is up-to-date.
1>C:\Program Files\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\Microsoft.CppBuil d.targets(714,5): error MSB3191: Unable to create directory "C:\OpenCPN\build\Release\C:". The given path's format is not supported.
========== Build: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ====

Can anyone advise why the incorrect path is appearing?

Many thanks.

Mike
