Test of the new menu system was created by FDR
I didn't want to pollute the Development post 5.0 topic with my findings about the new menu system, so I started a new topic for it.

My tests are primarily done in the emu_devo8 (deviation-emu_devo8-v5.0.0-969e9d5), I will make a note otherwise.

I found a small glitch in the scrollable form.
The "Transmitter menu", which in default needs no scrollbar to show all the items will unexpectedly show the scrollbar if I step through the buttons to the last from top down, but it doesn't happen if I step through upwards.

EDIT: The model menu behaves the same...

I haven't checked if it was this way before, but sometimes if I apply long presses to change an up/down value, the arrow stays pressed:

Since a short press of the EXT button exits the current page or menu the long press on EXT could go right back to the main page.
Now it quickly iterates through the pages backward until the main menu, but then you need to press it again to go back to the main page.

Where has my curve drawing with the pen gone? :blink:
In the original 4.0.1 it was there, but in a later nightly it has gone, as well as the big graph opening with a click on the small graph...

Thanks FDR,
I'm currently in the process of making things much worse (replacing the listbox with a scrollable which is resulting in lots of new bugs). Once I'm done with that, I'll start working on making them better again :)
But please don't stop reporting findings, knowning what is not right makes it a lot easier to fix.

Should I pull those changes now and start testing it, or should I wait until you clean it up?

There wasn't anything to pull until now.
I have now (I think) enabled all pages to be functional with the buttons only. How the buttons react will be different on the load/save/icon/reorder pages because I rewrote the code to use a scrollable widget.

I need some attention for the mixer reorder page. I have a scroll list on the right as before, but it is now view-only. This is primarily because I didnt' lie the previous interface where the sue of 'Copy to' was non-intuitive. Now the textselects do all the work, and the list is only for visualization of the current order. But I don't love this solution either and welcome feedback. I was considering allowing only touch select (no button control) of the list, but the widgets can't easily support that system, so I've abandoned it.

I added the long-press EXT to main menu already. I'll start looking at regressions and other oddities shortly.

I think I've addressed all items listed in this thread so far...I'm about ready to release this into the trunk. Maybe tomorrow.

Is it intentional on the mixer page, that when I step through the controls with the down button it goes through the channel monitor and reorder buttons, but not if I go upwards with the up button?

The field arrows still can stuck in.

The curve editing with the pen is still disabled, just like opening the large graph with it.

The scrollbar arrows now don't scroll fast on long press.

While now the long press on the physical EXT button will go strait to themain page, a long touch on the green EXIT button doesn't do such...

The selection in the menu system remains the same, even when I open other items with the touch screen.

On the mixer reorder page all channels are in the list, even I configured only 6 channels on the model config page.
Furthermore the scroll bar doesn't work, even if there are more then 8 channels.

Icon selection is much easier now with the buttons, however because the Load and Cancel buttons has vanished, you can't preview them if you use the touch screen, because then it is immediately selected, and the form closed.

EDIT: The soultion could be that the short click only previews the icon and the long click selects it and closes the form. Drawback is that it wouldn't be obvious, how to select an icon with the touch screen. There should be a Load, (or Select, or OK) button for that. However then we should include it into the "tab order" too, which would complicate the otherwise simple selection with the buttons...

EDIT: The same is true for the model select page too. You can't preview the model by it's icon, because it is immediately selected...

BTW if you want to speed up something with the menu rework, I think it could be the model selection, if it would get an own main menu item...

Now you cannot navigate on the main page with the buttons.
In the old version a long ENT press changed to navigation, and you could go to the model select, the model and transmitter menu, or the boxes (where you couln't do anything BTW).
Now the ENT goes into the main menu...


By design, however this way there is no simple way to select models...
