VHF Log and grid squares


Tim <tim@...>
 

Hello Scott!
I used VHF log over this past weekend in the June contest... it made my life so much easier.  One question:
Have you ever thought about expanding on the grid square view in the lower right corner?  I found that a lot of grids that I had worked didn't show as they were outside the group of grids that show in the existing view.
This is just a question... I love the software otherwise!

Hi Tim,

Yes, I'm glad you asked. I've had a couple of requests for a larger grid map and there are a couple of ways to go.

As you know, I've already allocated as much room to the main form for the map as I can. To enhance the display I can:

- Add 4 arrow keys (North, South, East and West) so that you can "scroll" through additional area.

Advantage - You don't have to leave the main form (fewer keystrokes/clicks)

Disadvantage - The only way to see additional area is by scrolling.

- Add another full screen form to display the larger map area.

Advantage - You will be able to see a larger area at one time.

Disadvantage - The map won't constantly be displayed. You will have to open and close it each time you wish to view it.

- Provide both options.

I'd love to hear comments from the group on your preferences. All suggestions are welcome!

I like the arrow suggestion.. I also used the VHF contest software
and really liked the speed in which it worked..

Scott,
Thank you for the quick response!! I vote for both.. I like the idea of
being able to see the whole map (or at least more of it) full screen once in
a while, (maybe while the band is dead), while having the scroll feature
would be great while "on the hunt".
Thanks again for producing great software!

I second the motion. The way the bands were open last contest, I frequently
was working areas not displayed on the screen. It would also be neat to see
the whole picture.

Thanks for your hard work, and for being open to suggestions.
