Thanks Dave

I own an official version of Tsunamis which still has the very best charts in my opinion.
Even the Tsunamis crack that is out there in the cloud (charts of the yr 2000) has better charts for passages and planning, but lacks some of the detail charts available in the CM93 sets. In the CM93 set the detail charts are sometimes hard to find when zooming in as I demonstrated. I have been very impressed with the OCPN project and congratulate you and the others with the work done sofar.

OCPN will definitely be a great asset to navigators once more official government bodies make their S57 sets freely available.

Peter

RouteManager v2

Here is a big patch for Route Manager. It's on Dave's ToDo list and a popular request. I volunteered to work on it.

Goal: add Waypoint management facility to the current Route Manager.

Many new buttons... (Route from Track, Go To waypoint...)

Changes (outside of RouteManager):
Created MyConfig::ExportGPXWaypoint
Created Track::RouteFromTrack
Created RoutePoint::SendToGPS
Created SendToGpsDlg::SetWaypoint

Notes:
New waypoint create a waypoint at the current location then open Waypoint Dialog

The only waypoints listed are those not embedded in Route or Track.

Active Track is displayed as bold.

No visibility toggling for waypoints. Is is necessary?

I don't like the bottom buttons: I wanted Import to the left and OK to the right. I couldn't get it right with BoxSizer. Anyone?


Is the default GPX export required? With route manager, you can export routes,tracks & waypoints one-by-one. With the default GPX export (top menu) you can export the whole data. If we add multi-select, we could export multiple routes/tracks/waypoints at once (see below). Maybe add a "Export All" button right to the "Import" button in Route Manager.

Possible enhancement:
Zoom to waypoint
Multi-select (for delete, export)
Remove GPX buttons in main toolbar, replace by Route Manager
Cleanup right button menu (ID_TK_MENU_EXPORT, ID_RT_MENU_REVERSE, ID_RT_MENU_EXPORT, ID_RT_MENU_SENDTOGPS, ID_RT_MENU_DELETEALL, ID_WP_MENU_DELETEALL, ID_DEF_MENU_ROUTEMANAGER,)

Dave/Technical:
Is it necessary to update m_pSelectedRoute m_pSelectedTrack m_pFoundRoutePoint m_pFoundRoutePointSecond as in chcanv?
same for pAnchorWatchPoint1 pAnchorWatchPoint2 (Suggestion: move these to pconfig->DeleteWayPoint)
Is the m_bNeedConfigFlush required? Config will be saved upon closing, no need to force saving every time IMHO.

Everything should work. SendToGPS untested.

Enjoy!

Hi peter,

Can you use the Tsunamis chart in OpenCpn?

How?


Thanks

Wow!
Very good one
Didn't have time to do much testing or any code investigation, so just quick usability notes:
- Delete doesn't work at least on my Win machine
- Sorting is really needed if you have more than a couple of waypoints
- Delete all takes a lot of time for my testing collection of approximately 150 waypoints - survivable but quite annoying
- Waypoints imported from GPX don't show in the dialog until OCPN is restarted

- "Zoom to" and multiselect would be really great

Perfect start, thanks a lot

Pavel

SethDart,

I have applied your RouteManager patch, it looks fine but I have a problem. On your pictures, it seems that you can change the width of the columns and for me not. See the picture. I have Ubuntu 10.04

I would like to know if it is possible to reverse the installation of the patch. And if yes, how.

http://opencpn.org/downloads/beta/opencpn_210_setup.exe

http://opencpn.org/downloads/beta/op...623-1_i386.deb


Changelog:
203. Improve cm93 quilting for sparsely covered areas.
204. Correct bug for BSB charts with UNKNOWN projection.
205. Correct display property updates after Toolbox->VectorChart changes.
206. Improve CrossTrackError (XTE) calculation.

---Release Beta 623---

Notes:
1. en_US help file included, as a snapshot of the Wiki. Incomplete, many errors and external links, but it is what it is....

2. I plan to update the version number and release this to sourceforge tomorrow (24 June) as the official Release.

No, Tsunamis has its own proprietary (and secret) format
The chart quality is fantastic (the very best of all chart systems I have seen)

Dave..

The new AIS target list is a great addittion BUT could it please be limited to only display ships within the active map range/area. In very heavily trafficated areas like the English channel or the Gibraltar Strait the display box freezes up and gives a flickering display.

If you examine f.ex. Siitech's WebVTSLite with some 12.000 targets around the world,only ships within the displayed map range are listed.
WEBVTSLITE:

Thanks for a great and developing navigation tool.

SethDart,

I try again and I can change the width of the columns but I cannot see the limits of them. Sorry for the bad information.

And I have also a problem with opencpn-gribbrowse.diff which is a usefull addition. It was working fine before, without any error and now I get :

Code:

Sometimes, even with that, it is working. Sometimes I cannot apply make.

Thanks for your comments & testings.

Distance column in waypoint list was not populated, solved. And I finally got the bottom buttons right!

Delete waypoint solved (missing pointer deletion -> mem leak )
Default sorting by waypoint name for now. I may add column clicking to sort by distance as well. Or would it be better to default sort by distance (from current boat position)?
DeleteAll: nothing I can do for now. I'm just calling pWayPointMan->DeleteAllWaypoints (Dave?)
Importing only updated Route list, now the three are updated.
Simple Zoomto implemented: the waypoint is centered on screen no rescaling for now.

No multiselect for now, would require changing ExportGPX functions to allow use of arrays or alike.

jpiebrig: Borders changed, you should see them now (you could resize it but they were not displayed, at least on Windows if I get it right).

As previously, this is a full patch to current CVS ; please revert previous one if you applied it.

I'm testing 623, and runs into problems with the NZ Tmercs. It does not seam to matter if I'm quilting or not, but when I'm trying to go from mercs to tmercs the system hangs, screen goes gray etc. I also had segfault, last time I tried.

Thomas
PS More testing. The crash is repeatable, and seams to crash at the same place. Sometimes the program hangs with a SIGINT that after a while changes to SEGFAULT.
My own 64 bit compilation.

I think the alphabetic sorting is better as a default - when you plan a route without GPS, the distance is hardly of any help...

Still not working for me Do you use some publicly available VCS for your code? It would be much easier to "patch the patch" with git or other access to latest code... If not, there's no hurry, I think it will be discussed quite a bit after the current release is done

I think it's good enough, at least for now

More usability and cosmetic thoughts:
  • The newly created waypoint should probably be deleted if Cancel is clicked in the properties dialog
  • The selected item should stay focused at least after editing the properties. After deleting a waypoint I would personally prefer selecting next row, but it can be quite subjective.
  • Visual indication whether the waypoint name is shown or not on the chart would be nice (more on this will of course come with multiselect later)
  • The horizontal lines don't draw properly when scrolling down with mouse by clicking on the scrollbar or on the scroll down button at it's end (Attached screenshot - WX problem?)
Very good work
