Re: GAL canvas strategy


Hi Tom,

6 more commits are up.

The hidden pins showing up in black is because the Eeschema colour preferences didn’t include hidden items (and so kept writing out “black”).  So you’ll need to get the new code, and after building it go into your eeschema preferences and delete the Color4DHiddenEx item.

I also hooked up a whole bunch of commands to GAL update/refresh logic.

The grid initialisation issue should be fixed.

I haven’t had a chance to look at the ERC markers yet; that’s next on my list.

I need some help with 2 issues:

1) I’ve got all the grid stuff hooked up for LibEdit, but it still doesn’t draw.  I’ve traced it down into OPENGL_GAL::DrawGrid() everything seems to be right, but nothing appears on the screen.  Perhaps another set of eyes would help….

2) The middle-mouse-button / zoom issue.  (I don’t have a mouse.)

Anything else you want me to look at?
