Another thing which can be done with the floorplan icons is that. To use color with different intensity according to value came with ON. For example, if some dimmer has is set ON with 50% its color will be rgb(255,255,96) and not rgb(255,255,0). In that case it'll be more visible what intensity has each lighting object.

For each object on the floorplan is returned a string with its properties. For example, dimmer information looks like that:
Code: [Select]
-256|On|ON/10|2275|where 10 is its intensity.

Hmmm... thats a very cool idea!

Are you saying that you have implemented that in the new build? Or are you saying that you are thinking of implementing it?

Another idea (this would require changes in the UI1 screens and therefore some work in HAD) would be to indicate the current 'dim' level of lights controlled by the ON/OFF buttons in the main menu. This could be by colour too I guess... but 25%...50%...75% next to the buttons would be good too.

All the best

It's just an idea for the next release :)

Do you mean buttons for scenarios? If so, this is useless IMHO because all lighting levels should be specified in the scenario definition.

I was thinking that displaying the current 'dimmer' value next to the 'ON/OFF' buttons in the main menu screen would be useful. It would allow you to see at a glance what the lighting level value was. Having these values next to each lighting icon on the lighting floorpan would also be useful ie as per the how the current Temp is displayed next to Temperature Sensors or Thermostats when you place those onto the floorplan.

Ok, got it :) But maybe it can be difficult to understand the picture in case of a big number of lighting objects on the plan. But it's just a guessing.

Ok... we have now used the updated N800 Orbiter on two N800 for most of the day and they seem totally stable as far as we can tell... so great work Michael!!

The new Orbiter package for OS2008 is already in the repo (diablo and chinook). The package for OS2007 can be downloaded from the maemo garage. Tonight it'll be uploaded to the repo as well.

Nice to see that the Orbiter works fine for us :)
I'm working currently with fixing the last issue with color (buttons become olive after pressing). I found one place where (most probably) the buttons are rendered - ObjectRenderer::RenderGraphic:
Code: [Select]
//if a button doesn't have a mng as selected state (see bDisableEffects), then the png
//used in normal state will be rendered for selected state + a blue rectangle to show the selection
The keyword is blue rectangle. But I still cannot find where that rectangle are rendered.

Hey all,

I uninstalled this on my n810 recently (diablo / OS 2008) and went to reinstall - but am now getting an error: "Operation Failed" (from the diapub URL)...

This happens after the Install pop-up (lmce-orbiter-installer 0.0.1-2) 8.4MB

Is this just me? Can other install after removing?

Cheers,
WR.

Strange ... To trace your problem let's do following:
1. Enable R&D mode on your device if it wasn't enabled:
Code: [Select]
sudo ./flasher-3.0 --enable-rd-mode -R2. Open terminal window and type:
Code: [Select]
sudo gainroot
apt-get install lmce-orbiter-installer
3. Post here output from apt-get
4. Disable R&D mode if prefer live without it:
Code: [Select]
sudo ./flasher-3.0 --disable-rd-mode -R

Michael I have noticed that when we display the 'Floorplan' views the speed at which icons change from their unselected to selected state seems to be sluggish compared to the earlier revs of the N800 Orbiter. Have you noticed this at all?

All the best

Are you still doing builds for OS 2006 as well?
