Topic: Improvement of QET terminals in Element Editor

A feature that might improve the QET for making all kind of connection descriptions like Terminal diagrams, Wiring lists etc. will be the possibility to add text to the QET-terminals within symbols.

Here follows an example of what I mean (see picture):

For now all connections are addressed to -Q1. The separate terminals within -Q1 have an ID in the XML but it isn't possible to add information to them. The texts for the connections (1/L1, 3/L2, 5/L3, 2/T1, 4/T2 and 6/T3) is just plain text. It is not connected to the terminal and thus unusable for getting information about the exact wire connection.

It would be very nice in some future day to have the possibility to add label and description information to each terminal inside a symbol. This would make it possible to derive information about the exact connection and later define them in terminal diagrams, wiring schedules etc. like -Q1:1/L1

In the XML it might look like this (added RED parts of element-xml):

        <elements>
            <element y="180" orientation="0" prefix="Q" type="embed://import/10_electric/10_allpole/200_fuses&amp;protective_gears/12_magneto_thermal_circuit_breakers/dis_mag_term_3f-1.elmt" freezeLabel="false" x="200" uuid="{3648bd06-62de-42ca-82ae-51fe2dcf01b3}">
                <terminals>

Re: Improvement of QET terminals in Element Editor

This was added in the past but not finished by cfdev, but now I don't know if Joshua removed this work, or not.

Re: Improvement of QET terminals in Element Editor

No, I don't remove it.
But it's just a draft of the feature.
Only some few lines of code, which do nothing.

Re: Improvement of QET terminals in Element Editor

This is in the elements editor
When I right click with the mouse on the terminal a menu opens.
Unfortunately, it is not here to input the text.
In the information widget , the text input and the text x and y coördinates are also not there.
Can this be added?
Is this done,then I think that the problem is solved.

Re: Improvement of QET terminals in Element Editor

I hope someone someday will add this function. It will be useful for many scripts to determine the exact origin.
Another option might be to assign to the terminal if it has a preferred connection-type (dashed, dash-dot e.g. or with other width)
Standard it will be assigned like "as-folio"-preferences. Some symbols may use preferred connections. These will have preference above the standard type. When two terminals with preferred connections that defer are connected, a pop-up will let the user chose between both (or Upper preferred on Lower or the other way around)
This option might be useful for wire symbols.

Re: Improvement of QET terminals in Element Editor

Bonjour,

Est-il possible de continuer à travailler sur les éléments de connexion (terminal)
alors ils ont un nom.
Une liste de terminaux et de listes de câbles peut alors être créée.
Le programme Uncalcalde fonctionne mieux.
Ensuite, Nuri, Galexis et d’autres personnes seront plus satisfaits.
Ils sont les sponsors de ce projet.




Erik

Toi aussi Erik, tu peux devenir "sponsor".

Malheureusement je confirme.
J'ai bien l'envie et les idées, mais le temps...
