    Mark, great looking log.  The filter that is being used for cw is not hi-lighted when the program starts in cw mode.  Just a small oversite I am sure.  

    Keep up the good work!

    Mark, I admire your work on this. For me though it is still a little complicated because I am not a contester. All I need is something simple to loge contacts I chat with. Nice job...

    Hi Steven,  That is actually harder than it looks.  It is on the list to get those filters to update.

    Hi Bill,

    I think if you keep an eye on where this is going you will find it can be exactly what you want.

    Tonight I worked on dockable panels with the idea that for people exactly like you all you might ever want to use is the log panel.  

    This means you can turn off all the other panels, have the log panel be a simple panel where you log your contacts. 

    I do think it will get there for you so keep an eye on it.

    Hi Mark and HNY! 

    I like FlexLogger although it increases my i7 quadcore CPU
    load by 40% running version 0.0.9.0.

    Is there a way to lower CPU load? With all the other programs I have to
    run CPU load is up to 80%!

    Alex- I'm seeing about half of the CPU usage you are (around 26.7%) here on an AMD 8 core for the FlexLogger program. But that is still a fairly high resource amount- considering SSDR is only using 5.2% here.

    WOW, how did I miss this thread?? Thank you so very much Mark. This is something that was really missing for "Flexers". I can't wait to test it out and provide feedback. Thanks again for doing this!

    There is a bug in 0.0.9.0 that is running the CPU up at 26%.

    I will be fixed in the next release, hopefully this weekend.  But that release will also have a totally new window setup.

    So... Let me see if I can pull out a 0.0.9.1 that fixes the CPU load.  Standby

    edited January 2019
    Hi all,

    Please update to 0.0.9.1 using the check for updates in the help menu.  This release takes the CPU load down to 0.1% for 90% of the operations.

    Sorry about the issue.

    Hi All,

    If you have FlexLogger installed, please use the help menu and check for updates.  Please update to V0.0.9.1 as it reduces a very high CPU load created by two renegade tasks.

    Tried it out for a short while last night.  Works great... appreciate all the effort that must have gone into it.  I have imported my logs from Log4OM and will see how it works over time.

    Hi Ed...  Make sure you are on 0.0.9.1.  Use help->Check for updates to update.

    Check for changes regularly as there are quite a few things that will come online. and Feel free to email me issues.

    Don, 

    If the menu bar at the top shows this:

    image

    Then you first need to create a database.  Pull down under that menu and select New Database...  Give it a name.  that will create an empty database.  

    The next time you run the program this database will automatically be selected for you but it is designed so you can have multiple databases and open which one you want to use.

    If you have done the above step then to get existing data into the new database you first need to export your data from your prior logging program.  Currently the only export format supported is ADIF and the output file should be something like <mydata>.adi.

    Then go to the "Log Management" tab.  On that tab select the "Import" tab.

    The import is a three step process:

    1) Select file.  This will allow you to select the ADI file you exported from your old logging program.

    2) Process import file.  This will read the selected file and process the text data and create a list of QSOs to import.  This list will be shown to you in the grid at the bottom of the window.  You have the option at this point in time to edit, fix or decide to clear errors or even not import at all.  Nothing has been put in your database yet.

    To get the data in your database, this is important:

    3) Commit to database.  This will take the list read in from step two and actually commit it to your database.

    Any possibility later for also including JTDX- similar to the WSJT-X package-But I find JTDX to be a bit better layout and function

    I'll have to take a look at it.  I will put it on the list.

    Mark, at last I can now see the complete logger panel.
    I only want to show the logger panel, but I still have a white screen  covering all of my 26 inch monitor.
    How do I further reduce the size of the screen? Note the white screen is on reduced size nown if I go to a full screen on Flexlogger it covers almost 1 and a half of my monitors.

    9.2 has broken connection to the rig, cant find it, even tried a fresh (add new) no luck
  • Mark_WS7MMark_WS7M Member ✭✭
    edited January 2019
    Hi Ross,

    In the version you have the lower right corner of the window acts as a size handle.  You can resize the window by grabbing that.  When you find the right spot the cursor will change to a diagonal arrow.

    In a version I hope to release this weekend, the screen management, sizing and placement of the windows/panels will be much easier.

    Let me know if the size handle makes it usable for you.

    In your radio definition, for local connection type, put in or select find "Find"

    this was an attempt to get a VPN radio working.
  • Mark_WS7MMark_WS7M Member ✭✭
    edited January 2019
    Hi all,

    For anyone that has upgraded to 0.0.9.2 please be advised your radio connection may not work.  This version attempts to fix a VPN based radio connection and as a result it requires a few more parameters in your radio definition.

    Please edit your radio definition and select "Find" as the local connection type.

    Alternatively if you are using a static IP you can select "Address" and put in the IP.

    Lastly, if you are a lucky muliple flex radio owner and you know your serial numbers you can enter the serial number.  Select Find for the local connection type and the code should find the radio with that serial number and connect.

    Please can you move SPOT button in upper Log window (we spot only actual QSO's) and remove Edit and Delete from Log window? A double click on a QSO should move this QSO in Log window, then i can edit and click Save

    Good work, TNX

    Super Job Mark so far it is an easy one to use and the connect to Flex is fantastic, still a bug or two but coming along very nice. That said, I tried, after a couple of days, to export a log I had imported a couple of days(versions) ago, and it came up with an error. What follows is a log of the error:

    and yes I used the commit button and all that when I originally imported the file, 4992 entries in all, errors corrected or ignored. And I told it to do All entries, not the date limited version.

    Hi Jim,

    Thanks.  It looks like you have some empty entries in the dictionary.  Would you mind sending me your ADI import file.  I can import, and try the export.

    Please email to:  [email protected]

    As far as the JIT debugger, yes, if you have one installed currently it will vector to that.
