Check the workaround in point 2. in this thread how to move the menu: http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=88996

 

 

 

 

---------------------------------------------------

Before you ask:

 

No - I don't know how to bring back what was able to do in 1.1.1.1 (and I'm also not amused...)

>>> Drag/Drop and Click-able Radio Communication menu

 

 

BUT....

 

I'm right now working at a AHK script that can interpret mouse gestures (so it will work also on a touch screen).

 

So you only have to chose a starting point where no click-able item is - and simply"draw" 1,2,3,... to send F1,F2,F3.....

 

EDIT:

 

>>> How To:Radio Menu control with Mouse Gestures

 

 

---------------------------------------------------

 

.

A note to the responsibilities at Eagle Dynamics:

Please give the people that designs the interface a bigger monitor (a little bigger in resolution than 1024x768 ... or even better : Give them two! this would be a real Eye-opener for them! ;) ).

...and now I have the opportunity to rep him again for doing it. :D

 

Thanks again, Pete!

Oh dear, poor Emmet Brown crushes his head again...

Interesting time stamp LOL

oh my ...you have to know: its always good to be one month ahead...!

 

Keeps you free for doing things your really want to do and so on...

 

:D

(and also gives you enough time to finish things you left behind:))

 

...

I already thought to edit it after I realised it myself yesterday... but this would mean another Moderator approval for the user-files at the DCS-homepage and so on...

So I leave it as it is - and I bet in one month no one will really notice this any more

 

Edit:

So lets say this is a "open-beta" that will be released in nearly one month . - and the PR-department already used this date...:) See ? nothing a developer can really do about! :D

Hi... I'm not good at this thing, but I've just poked these files.

Of course PeterP knows better, but here's my findings:

 

In ".../Scripts/UI/RadioCommandDialogPanel/" folder,

 

  • CommandMenu.lua
    Line #94 > Text size. I set 22.
    Line #110 > Caption text size. I set 28.
    Line #111 > Caption text colour. "Yellow" isn't bad.
    Line #55 > Menu width. You can adjust "right to left" position of menu by increasing it. I set 350.
     
     
  • CommandDialogsPanel.lua
    Line #160 > Menu window height. It's better increse it to 450 or 500, if you adjust bigger font size in "CommandMenu.lua".

I didn't touch font type, it's OK for me.

 

Thanks.

To help others out, here is what I did for my 30" Main monitor running at 2560 x 1600, note I did NOT modify the height in the CommandDialogsPanel.lua file as it was not needed:

 

In ".../Scripts/UI/RadioCommandDialogPanel/" folder,

 

CommandMenu.lua

 

Line #44 > menuWidth = 280 (Changed to 500)

Line #84 > textSkin.skinData.states.released[1].text.fontSize = 12; (Changed to 22)

Line #100 > menuCaptionSkin.skinData.states.released[1].text.fontSize = 15; (Changed to 28

 

Line #101 > menuCaptionSkin.skinData.states.released[1].text.color = Color.white() (Changed to yellow)

Workin for me. IIRC, I'm using Fakum's suggestion but think the Line#s may be little different.

I have looked in both LUA fills, and there is no entry like in the old once. The entrys thats in there, with front size and font types I cant alter, DCS wont start up after I have done that

 

Cant you upload the files you have changed ?
