Add choices to drop down lists

Post by Rbox »

Hi, I 'd like to be able to add choices to the drop down lists that don't allow typing. In particular I want an entry for "Swimming pool" in the 'Water' section and more choices in the 'Visibility' section. And this ofcourse in Dutch, so it would be easiest if I could add these entries myself. How can I do this?

Re: Add choices to drop down lists

Hi

This is unfortuntely currently not possible, because Diving Log stores just the numeric index of the list in the database, not the value. So this is something I would have to add in the code across all platforms.

For visibility, you can add 2 free text fields (VisHor and VisVer) in the layout designer (or simply use the "Extended Layout 2") in the layout tab of the logbook toolbar. For pool dives, I would add a dive type "Swimming pool" to the dive type list and add it that way.

Kind regards,
Sven

OK. Done as suggested. Not ideal, but workable. Follow-up questions in new thread.
