Font Colors in Wsjt-x CQ-monitor

Hello,

is there a way to change the font colors in the Wsjt-x CQ-monitor Window or are they hard coded? I want to change them to the same colors (nearly) as i use in WSJT-X.

Font colors

Not at current version.
I have on test run a devel version where colors,font & size and window size can be changed.

I will make pull request as soon as I see that it works properly. After (if) Peter has merged it, it appears to official release.

Meanwhile if you are able to compile by yourself or can(will) use test binary for x86_64 you find them:
https://github.com/OH1KH/cqrlog-devel
http://www.saunalahti.fi/sakny/bin/cqrlog2/

Testers are welcome!
Binary zip has instructions how to use. In both cases source or binary usage DO backup your ~/.config/cqrlog folder before try.

Okay, i played with the latest Beta from today. I can change the Font Colors in the Wsjt-x CQ-monitor Window, but they are not saved when closing WSJT-X or CQRLOG. After restarting WSJT-X or CQRLOG, i got the old colors again.

Hi!
Colors are now saved when selection dialog closes. Also UDP decoding works faster.

Please try devel 2.1.0-111 I uploaded today.

I checked 2.1.0-112 today.

I checked 2.1.0-112 today. Looks good, Colors are saved. Band Conditions are awful, so not much testing yet.

Colors

Interesting !

They should be saved. I just tested test binary -110 with a laptop that is not the same I'm doing programming.
I.E loaded binary from website and then opened monitor and changed "Qso never color" from green to blue.
Closed cqrlog and started again. Went again to change same color and it was blue as set on last run.

When cqrlog is running there is file ~/.config/cqrlog/Xcqrlog.cfg
where X is the number of opened log.

It is a text file with a section:

[MonWsjtx]
NoHistory=1
MyAlert=1
LocAlert=1
TextAlert=w c
MyAll=1
wkdhere=clRed
wkdband=clFuchsia
wkdany=clMaroon
wkdnever=$00801C00
extCqCall=$00003EFF
Font=DejaVu Sans Mono
FontSize=10

When you change something it should appear to this file.

NOTE: Some settings are recorded just before program closes. So yo may see changes on next run.
File exists only when cqrlog is running. On close it is deleted and information saved to mysql with
corresponding log.

I Checked source while writing this and colors are saved when CQ-monitor form closes.

Can you test this a bit more?
Because I can not find problem. And if it really exist it must be fixed before pull request.

Try to change color, then close cqrlog from NewQso window. Then next try to change color then close cq-monitor from window's X (top right) and then close cqrlog from new qso.
Any difference ?

I can put color save to place where color setting dialog closes (when I return home from my weekend travel). At least then change should be saved ok.

Sorry !
Ii seems that you mean the devel version's colors as you talk about several colors.
But the document is same, but new revision, just read it from my devel GitHub repo:

https://github.com/OH1KH/cqrlog-devel/blob/master/CqrlogAdditions2.pdf should explain color usage.

Hi Saku,
I am in Canada and operating as W4JKL/VY2 and I don't get the My Alert audio. Is it possible that you should parse the callsign data for prefix (VY2/W4JKL) and suffix (W4JKL/VY2) callsigns?
p.s. I am happy to see your alert code in CQRLOG OM!

Sorry, for the slip. I am running CQRLOG 2.1.0 (117) from your server.

CQ Monitor

Hi John!

It is a bit hard to test for me :)

What call do you use cqrlog/preferences/station ?
Seems that you have set there the full call as W4JKL/VY2 and that's why you do not get alerts.

When you call cq with wsjt-x it sends VY2/W4JKL, but when you get an answer it is just the plain call W4JKL.
Qso partners will send full extended call just in "73 VY2/W4JKL". Am I right?

Cq monitor compares callsign set at cqrlog/preferences/station and recived wsjt-x calls.
Wsjt-x uses plain call with qso messages, but extended call with cq (and qso partner's 73).

Now it is bit hard to know is the plaln call the 1st or the 2nd part divided by "/".
Maybe I could make comparison on other way and try to find wsjt-x received call from inside of extended call set in cqrlog/preferences/station.
I could try it some day if it does not break anything else.

Easiest way (for me) is to set the plain call to cqrlog/preferences/station but maybe it can then break LoTW,EQSL and other online logs.

we'll see...
