This is clearly a regression against O4. We removed this feature due to troubles with Alt-Tab on XP. Remember, Hakan?
However, since it is a regression, I think we can re-enable this for Windows later than XP (i.e.Vista +) and linux generally without much risk.
Dave..
Yes, I remember and on Win10 the Alt function is now nice and clear.
But since the Alt detection method is another than last time, a year ago, I made a new XP test:
For a test I set the function to not detect XP:
>>>int major;
wxGetOsVersion(&major);
return (major > 4);<<<
and run that on XP.
There is another behavior than Win10 that's correct, but using this new Alt-key detection method the Alt-Tab function is now working on XP without much disturbance. The minor disturbance is a very short menu blink down/up when leaving XP hardly visible if you don't look for it. And when returning to XP, by Alt-Tab, the menu is proper closed and all is fine.

My conclusion is that using this Alt-key detection method we don't need to exclude XP. The function IsTempMenuBarEnabled() could then be deleted??

Is this what you mean?
I must apologize. I referred, relating to "F4" to a document in French, containing an error.
Indeed, "F4" is not used to "Enter creation route". So I cancel the content of the post # 11 of this thread.

BUT, Verily there is a malfunction of "F4". If we "F4", we enter in "Distance Measurement". This is correct.
If we did it again "F4", it actually exits the "Distance Measurement". BUT two things do not go:
- The Mouse icon remains the pencil.
- In the context menu, the command "Measure: OFF" is not replaced by the command "Measure."

In the current state of things, after ceasing to measure the distance with "F4", it is necessary to open the context menu (right click) and click "Measure OFF" so that the icon becomes normal, and that the command "Measure "appears, again, in the context menu. This is not good.

Best regards, Gilletarom.

Re: OpenCPN RC 4.1.1301 Release

Dave,

A small detail on raster charts of VisitMyHarbour (VMH, below).
1. I unlocks, in the PC, VMH charts.
2. I run O 411 301, (I can see the edge charts to understand what is happening).
3. I declare VMH charts, I create a chart group that I call VMH, and I active this chart group. I use the VMH charts.
4. I close the PC.
5. I re-opened the PC.
6. I forget to unlock the charts of VMH.
7. I launch O411301 (We are still in the VMH group of charts).
8. The red limits of VMH charts still appear on the screen when I forgot to unlock the charts in the PC.

It would be possible in this case that:
- When we launched O411301, the bar charts does not display blue bands for VMH charts.
- The red limits of VMH charts do not appear on the chart area.
- A message appears indicating that the VMH charts were not unlocked in the PC

Add :
Same question for NV-Verlag charts if i do not insert my dongle (in case I use the dongle).

Re: OpenCPN RC 4.1.1301 Release

Windows users compiling have to get those file from sourceforge separately and expand them. I believe linux install normally does not require that.

I believe TDan put a 250ms delay because the 2bell was not ringing twice.

I can reproduce your observation though I never detected it since I use the "Normal" way to end measure function - Esc - key.

Re: OpenCPN RC 4.1.1301 Release

Hakan...

Regarding ALT key on XP:

What was the original problem with Alt-Tab, if you remember? I don't think I made any real change to the ALT detection code, except to disable it earlier. Can you reproduce on O4?

Dave

Re: OpenCPN RC 4.1.1301 Release

Dave
Let's see if I can make myself understandable but I try:

I think the original problem on XP was that Alt -keydown opened the menu. Then when Tab was doing keydown Windows take over and received Tab-keyup and Alt -keyup. Next time OCPN got focus it was still left in Alt-keydown mode and the menu had focus. Then I had to press-release Alt-key to leave the menu.

Now it seems that the menu is opened on Alt-keyup instead and then Windows is already in charge since Tab has been down/up when Alt is released. But, and this a bit strange, another Alt down/up seems to be received by O before focus is gone. That's the menu down>up.
The result is that O is nicely left and focus is switched to the other app. When returning to O next time the menu is still closed and O waits for nothing more.

I could of course try 4.0 again but honestly why? For me the behavior without XP avoidance is good enough. Why not do the same in core code and ask for other XP testers comment?
If that gives you bad feelings let it be as it is in your code now, I don't care much for the menu. And, as said, in Win10 it's very good.
Håkan

Re: OpenCPN RC 4.1.1301 Release

(Linux Mint rafaela 64bit on HPg60)
I have no background world map.
?Apparently the gshhs folder is not included when I
"git clone git://github.com/OpenCPN/OpenCPN.git" ?

Log:
Quote:
07:15:24 PST: Unable to initialize background world map. No GSHHS datafiles found in /usr/local/share/opencpn/gshhs/
07:15:24 PST: Loading World Chart Q=0 in 0 ms.
07:15:24 PST: GSHHS World chart files have wrong version. Found 0, expected 210-220.
07:15:24 PST: Loading World Chart Q=0 in 0 ms.
07:15:24 PST: Loading World Chart Q=0 in 0 ms.
07:15:28 PST: Loading World Chart Q=0 in 0 ms..................
.
edit add: as you may note, I tried copying them over from another version=fail

and an svg icon missing still...
Quote:
07:15:24 PST: Can't find SVG: /usr/local/share/opencpn/uidata/traditional/AIS_disabled.svg
otherwise he works really well with OpenGL=ON

OGL=OFF has the same ol' spinning cursor and "click-n-drag tile lag" My charts are on a NTFS partition..That could be my own particular problem...Will try as a "fix"

because, On W7 (64bit HP G60) things work better.

Re: OpenCPN RC 4.1.1301 Release

Tried version RC 4.1.1301 on:

1. AMD64 system with Linux Mint (OpenGL)

2. Eeepc with Linux Debian 8.2 (OpenGL)

3. Raspberry PI 2 with Raspian (no OpenGL)

4. Thin client working from a bootable USB stick with Debian 8.2 Linux (OpenGL)

For testing I use an Navilock GPS Mouse. Boat is in the winter storage.

All this systems work without a problem with the latest RC version.

The only thing that is still missing is the ability of printing the Charts in A3 format. Printing works but no option available to choose A3 format. I also like to have paper Charts which I print with my A3 colour printer.

I'am using the Dutch ENC Charts for these tests.

Thanks for this fine piece of software.


Bram

Re: OpenCPN RC 4.1.1301 Release

Hi
in the option dialog depth unit is not set until plip is initialized.

It's minor but if you change it plip initialization will reset it, misleading.

Re: OpenCPN RC 4.1.1301 Release

I am seeing a small problem with the busy spinner:

Ubuntu 14.04LTS 64bit
Intel I5
6Gmemory
OpenCPN Compiled from source (no changes)
Also tried from PPA.

After adding or removing charts, the busy spinner stays active.

I am Using the US ENC and RNC charts for NY.

OpenGL on/off makes no difference.

It can be cleared by entering options and exiting without making changes to the charts, or closing and re-opening OpenCPN.

Cheers,
JM.

Release 4.1.1301


Notes:

This Beta is a Release Candidate. Only very minor changes are anticipated before the Production Release of O4.2.

Please check your favorite corner cases without mercy. Break it if you can. Submit crash reports if you find them.
Also, don't forget to have a look at the international translations provided generously by all the crowdin project members.

Finally, lets keep in mind always that there are many thousands of O4 users in the wild, and many will eventually upgrade to O4.2. We want no serious regression problems, and want the upgrade to be as smooth and intuitive as possible. So think like a relatively in-experienced user as you put this RC through its paces. Is it less satisfying in any way? Is any part of the User Experience a step backwards?

Thanks, and Good Luck
Dave
Thanks to you and the OpenCPN team for your collective dedication and unselfish giving to the cruising and motoring marine community ! A Happy and healthy New Year. May all your releases be bug free
