RotationCtrl Plugin

I am trying to compile Sean's new RotationCtrl plugin which seems to still have some errors when compiling with current v4.1 of opencpn.lib.

This plugin is a reasonable solution to issues we were having with the options interface during the final hours of issuing version 4.0.

Bdcat resolved the issues by removing the option of rotating charts, which was a reasonable call at the time given that feature was not a high priority for many users.

However I believe it is a feature that could be very useful for some, provided it did does not confuse new users and logjam development.

To that end, Sean has made a RotationCtrl Plugin which was paired with an Opencpn pull request.

I have not been able to find Sean's pull request on github.com in either Sean's pull requests or under outstanding Opencpn repository pull requests (still learning). This leads me to believe that the pull request was merged but I have not found it yet.

1. Has Sean's pull request been merged with the current 4.1 Opencpn?
2. If so, I am getting this error when I compile rotationctrl with the current v4.1 opencpn.lib.

--It is possible I have overlooked something.

PS:
I just found Sean's pull request for Plugin API 1.13 here
https://github.com/OpenCPN/OpenCPN/pull/242
initial functions for plugin api 1.13 #242


I guess it has not been merged yet.

Correction: Sean closed the pull request, and it appears to have been "commited".

Does anyone have any suggestion to compile this?

Re: RotationCtrl Plugin

I had to rebase because of more changes.. basically pull requests go stale once changes get commited that conflict with them before they are merged.

https://github.com/OpenCPN/OpenCPN/pull/264

Otherwise you could just pull my opencpn repository and use that to test this plugin.

Re: RotationCtrl Plugin

This plugin is not working in O5, no multiple canvas support.
Plugin icon is also not displayed correct.
I use it to stabelize the charts (and maybe later radar) to HDG
So if the boat is drifting for fishing, charts with waypoints don't turn around crazy.
But O5 only rotate's charts to COG.

Feature request for OpenCPN 5.x, add a 3the choice, North up, Course up, and Vessel Heading up please

This has been discussed before - I can't find where. I seem to recall that Dave bdbcat has said it can't be done, though it seems a very useful feature even if you're not drifting about fishing. Heading up if heading is available, else course up if it's not

Re: RotationCtrl Plugin

There is one more "waterway axis up". Particularly interesting for Inland waterways.

Re: RotationCtrl Plugin

Nice idea. Sean made a merge of PR on Pypilot 8 days ago. Try raising him on pypilot?

In OpenCPN 4.8.x HDG up works perfect with rotation plugin.
So i think it is not so difficult to implement in O5

In a few months i go fishing in Denmark
Going to install version 4.8.8 on the boat so this works again with te plugin.

Re: RotationCtrl Plugin

May we please have these issues entered in Flyspray bug tracker as Feature Requests, (or bugs if appropriate) so that they may not be forgotten?


Thanks
Dave

Re: RotationCtrl Plugin

I just tried the plugin and it seems to work, but only for the first canvas.

Re: RotationCtrl Plugin

Dave, Maybe registration needs some kind of attention?
