Question Developers Discussion List, IRC etc. (AIS SART)

Hi.

With the help of Marco, I've had a go at implementing AIS SART detection into OpenCPN.

I'm at the point where the programme detects the SART (In accordance with the AIS Specification and further work by McMurdo/Kannad), displays a target and prints the AIS SART MMSI to stdout.

The next stage is relatively straightforward - to ensure that the text displayed in the GUI makes it obvious that the target is a SART.

The bit I require some guidance on is the next stage. We'd like to implement a special target image (A red circle with a diagonal cross through it as per the spec.). It seems that we need to generate a png, then convert this to C and then call this new logo instead of the ship shaped one when a boolean is set.

Is there a discussion list where one can ask for more details?


Simon

Simon...
There's no mailing list or IRC. Dave is a full time cruiser and a lot of the time his internet connection is not what one would dream about.
Said that you just came to the best place to discuss your problems.
The AIS symbols are drawn as vector shapes (check ChartCanvas::AISDrawTarget in chcanv.cpp:5930)
The SART symbol should be quite easy to add there - probably even easier than a bitmap (Embedding PNG Images - WxWiki).
If we could see the code, it would probably be easier to discuss it.
