locked Re: [Ham-Apps] JT-Alert window width

Laurie, VK3AMA <groups04@...>

Altering the JT-Alert-X window width to match the reduced width of wsjt-x has several issue that need to be considered.
  • To maintain the current or increase the number of callsign display slots would require the callsigns moving to a 2 line display. (I have already received request to increase the number of slots beyond the current limit of 9.
  • Log fields displayed and dxcc country names would each need to go to 2 lines as well.
  • Either the titlebar menu or band activity display would need to me removed to an additional area in the gui display area.

The above points, at a minimum, would double the vertical display area of JT-Alert-X.
Significant recoding would be required further complicated is the need to accommodate displays with 125% font scaling and adjusting gui control sizes and placement.

Reducing the width will not free up desktop space as some would hope.

It is unlikely that you will see a revised layout until late in the year.

when you start getting requests like this one.

The default JT-Alert window width
matches the JT65-HF & JT65-HF Comfort window widths exactly.

However the width of the JT-Alert windows width for JT9-X
extends out beyond the WSJT-X window width.

...and so its far right end, ends up under another window
would it be possible to make the JT-Alert window widths
match the 2 different WSJT and JT65 window widths,
dependent on which one it was working with?
