Jeff... Great work on WINGRIDDS. I find this program very EASY to use and great display. One this i notice was when i make a map (Product and select a product), it maps just find... Then i switch to another program hitting "alt-tab" on my computer (say like to internet explorer or something) and switch back to WINGRIDDS the map is cleared automatically. Just wanted to give you a heads on on that!


Great work man. I should be making scripts really soon so i can upload these maps to my webpage.

Any work being done for FILL COUNTOURS?? thanks man!


Jon

Jon,

Regretfully, the display area erasing when switching the screen contents is a uncontrolled...feature...of the software library I'm using to build the Windows functions in WINGRIDDS. That effect may be fixable if I hunker down & do some dedicated programming to fix it but for now, that is not a high priority.

As for a contour fill feature, prospects are much better there. Once WINGRIDDS final is released & things settle down, that will be one of the next features I add. Refereing back to that software library package I have, it has built-in functions for things like that so those advanced graphics will be much easier to add rather than have to program it from scratch.

I have many ideas to incorporate into WINGRIDDS & I will put out a user poll with a list of improvements & ask users to rate them most-to-least important.

Thanks & Stay tuned...
Jeff

Any new updates on the Fill contours? Just want to do a quick check even though you said you will get to it after the final release. Just thought we might get Lucky!

Again, great work Jeff!

GOOD GOLLY!!! The more you pester the sssslllloooowwwwer I code ;-) I said it will come in the *NEXT* release & it will be in the *NEXT* release. It's not as simple as just "throwing it in". It's going to change the way the contouring command structure is done *and* for each contour fill type, it will have to have it's own config file to describe the style of fill pattern (color range, color spread, patternt type(s), etc.)

I have been more focused on getting WINGRIDDS debugged & out the door & I have *just* started getting a handle on how to work with the new software libraries that do the "enhanced" contouring techiques & I have to figure out how to integrate them into the programming/operations of WINGRIDDS.

Going from PCGRIDDS32 to WINGRIDDS was a big enough step in both programming & operations & I like to keep my steps managable, thank you very much.

Believe me, I have quite a wish list of things to integrate into WINGRIDDS & they each will come in time. Remember, I'm a one-man band & I cannot do everything at once. Once WINGRIDDS is out, I'm going to circulate a top ten "wish list" & have everyone rate each from 1 to 10 on importance.
Hmmmm...where will contour fill be ?????

Thank you for your patience & understanding,
