Possible Bug (beta 3.3.814)

I just recently installed the beta version and have stumbled across a repeatable bug.

I start OpenCPN, then open the route manager, click the waypoints tab, then click new. I alt-tab over to Safari to look at the coordinates of a wreck I want to enter, then alt-tab back over to OpenCPN and enter my information (I may do this a couple of times), then click OK when I am done entering all the information for the waypoint. After that, no matter where I click (on OK within the route manager or the underlying chart) I hear a beep like there is another dialog open within OpenCPN. I move the route manager window and cannot see a dialog below it, and I also move the main Open CPN and cannot see an open dialog below it. I have tried to Click OpenCPN and Quit, but it fails to quit. I can force quit, restart the program and bring up the route manager and the new waypoint was saved.

EDIT: I doesn't matter if I just enter a new waypoint and never alt-tab out of the program. It just beeps anytime I click anywhere within the program.

Like I said, this is very repeatable.

I am using Mac OSX 10.7.5, OpenCPN 3.3.814 as well as Safari.

Tom

Tom...

Will you try reproducing this bug on 3.3.1006?

Thanks
Dave

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Still exists. Also, when you click on New, the waypoint information window comes up under the route manager window. You have to move the route manager window off the waypoint information window to edit it.

It looks like when you open the route manager another window is opening and then going away really quickly before the route manager window is being displayed. I am running my laptop with an SSD, so everything is really fast. Maybe another mac user can try this on a machine that is running a traditional hard drive to see that other window opening. I have tried to use the ctrl-tab and ctrl-quote key combination to see if another active window would come up. The route manager window is losing focus to something else, but the esc key will not deactivate it.

Another observation is this latest version brings up the acknowledgement window each time the program is started and I seem to be having crashes now.

EDIT: Nevermind on the acknowledgement screen. I had to first quit normally without force quit or a crash.

UPDATE: When I click on the route manager icon, another window definitely pops up and then disappears. I can then click OK to dismiss the route manager and I minimized the main screen (not the program) and cannot see an underlying window. But, if I bring up the route manager again and try to create a new waypoint, I cannot do anything after I click OK. I will work on nailing down this crash problem.

I can also confirm it does not pose a problem to ctrl-click anywhere on the chart to drop a mark and then ctrl-click the mark (waypoint) and edit the properties. The window that comes up and disappears with the route manager does not appear doing this way.

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Can anyone advise on Weatherfax_pi MSVC++ compile problem using git v3.2.0?
In weatherfax_pi I made appropriate changes for _isnan errors and tinyxml suggested by Rasbats, after a git fetch/pull. Getting "unresolved external symbol errors, Public:..." and it won't compile. See this post.

Previous one that works "weatherfax_win32_pi18_v07_ov320_pi.dll"

Has weatherfax_pi changed plugin API or is it using something more current from Opencpn? I thought it was to compile independently on Opencpn 3.2.0. I never know when this API change happens. If the plugin API has changed, what version of Opencpn should it be compiled in? Where can we note that for others?

Thanks.

Later: API still 18, Plugin Version is 09, found in weatherfax_pi.h

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Hi,

I guess i'm late to the game as I see there is a 3.3 beta out now.

But I just got around a to installing 3.22 and I found an issue with how CM93 layers/scales are shown.

I"ve attached two pictures of Cortes Island, Desolation Sound BC Canada.

In 3.02 the higher scale chart gets shown.
In 3.22 it does not- See the greyed out areas.


Keep up the good work!

After trying to compile in 3.2.2 with _isnan & tinyxml errors fixed, got External Symbol errors.

After trying to compile in 3.3.1009 with _isnan & tinyxml errors fixed, got External Symbol errors. See attached..

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Re: Beta Test / Technical

In weather_routing_pi RouteMapOverlay.cpp includes are

#include "../../../include/ocpn_plugin.h"
#include "../../../include/ocpndc.h"
#include "../../../include/wx/jsonreader.h"
#include "../../../include/wx/jsonwriter.h"

are the ws/jsonreader.h and ws/jsonwriter.h considered illegal external for plugins?

good point- I have this too! in 3.2 and 3.3.1006. I recently changed versions of cm93 so I'll have to check my old version and see if that helps...maybe a corrupt cell? It seems local to 50 06N 125 03W


(...but other areas might be slow to show detail from the grey patches you show too?)

Happy!

I tested versions from 2009, -10 and 11. All had the same bad cell.
A version from 2001 was alright, however.

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Exactly so, Thomas!
I booted up O 2.61310_PORTABLE with both my versions cm93 2004 and 2010 and both miss cells here.

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Pleased to report that I successfully tested the option to output MAGnetic bearings in APB autopilot sentences. This feature is introduced in 3.3.1006 Beta.

With this option enabled, OCPN APB output permits my Simrad TP32 autopilot to successfully enter NAV mode and follow a route to the next waypoint.

Good work! Well done! Thank you!!

Tugwit...

Thanks for the test/confirmation. I have not tried it on my Raytheon A/P yet, but is on my list of TODOs.

Now would be a good time to request closure of FS#1151

Hi All (A lot of love to Opencpn and all that sail in her!)
Im putting an Ubutu Arc 12.04 (Trim Slice) together running a compiled Opencpn 3.2.2 1009 and have some issues.
- Memory leak 5-10 MB RAM day (just idling in same position with ais).
- Logfile grows allot because of these 2 sentences:
09:06:59 CEST: Changing NMEA Datasource for PNMLS to Serial:/dev/ttyUSB0 (Priori

Hakan...

re:
"Misplaced text element, _texto, in CM93 charts.
When using scales around 80000, the "C" parts, texto elements are generally located at wrong positions."

May we see some screen shots, please?
