Hackathon Proposal:POH Checklists
This is an example Hackathon idea for the Virtual FSWeekend Hackathon 2020.
|Title:||POH Checklists |
|Background:||Stuart would like to improve how checklists are displayed within the simulator.
Stuart would be very happy to help anyone who is interested in creating either a generic MFD checklist feature, or to replace the PUI version with a better canvas implementation. So if someone is looking for a Hackathon idea - using QML or Canvas to render checklists so that they look more like a traditional checklist in a POH would be quite a neat little project. 
The PUI checklist dialog has a bug where selecting a new group doesn't update the checklist selection combo-box. Stuart has tried various tricks to update it, but thinks it's an underlying issue with PUI itself. 
Hopefully as we move to using Canvas in the future we'll be able to improve the checklist display to include a set of dots linking the items.
Trying to do something more complicated with Nasal and PUI is a real pain, and Stuart doesn't think it's worth the effort. One thought he had a while back was it would be nice to replace the checklist function with some Canvas window that looked a bit more like a traditional paper checklist.
