Some ideas on emitters

Post by joost » Thu Apr 28, 2016 11:17 am

1: Select/highlight emitter in tree view from a right-click option in log entry table. In order to hide one of the parents of that emitter.

2: Additionally: add option to hide package AND children.

3: Allow to (un)hide specific emitters from tree view directly

4: Easily view and manipulate currently hidden emitters, now one has to follow the tree view looking for a slightly different icon. And once found can't hide/unhide that specific emitter.

Hello,

Here are my comments/answers bellow in blue:
  1. Select/highlight emitter in tree view from a right-click option in log entry table. In order to hide one of the parents of that emitter.
    Good idea, thanks, we will add this feature in a future release.
  2. Additionally: add option to hide package AND children.
    In fact you can already do this: in the emitter tree by clicking on the parent package icon, and in the log entries table by right-clicking a log entry then popup menu item "hide this package and children"
  3. Allow to (un)hide specific emitters from tree view directly
    See previous question: you can do so by clicking on the package/emitter icon.
  4. Easily view and manipulate currently hidden emitters, now one has to follow the tree view looking for a slightly different icon. And once found can't hide/unhide that specific emitter.
    In order to manage showed/hidden emitters precisely when you have a great number of emitters, you may want to use the "Filtering State" feature: click on the "Filtering State" button in the main toolbar (between Filter and Calendar buttons), then "Save current filtering state" (or "Save current filtering state as..." if you want to give a name to this state). Then you can edit the list of hidden emitters by clicking on "Filtering State" button again then editing your filtering state using the "Filtering states..." menu item and double-clicking on your filtering state.
