Revision as of 01:34, 1 June 2008

Contents

List of expected behaviors for KStars 4.0.

Please test these behaviors, and indicate whether it works correctly or not. Once a behavior has been tested, attach one of the following codes to the beginning of the line to indicate its status.

  • No symbol or Black: behavior not yet tested
  • * or Red: behavior causes KStars to crash
  • X or Orange: behavior is broken
  • B or Yellow: behavior sort-of works, or is buggy
  • U or Cyan: Usability issue
  • C or Green: behavior works correctly

Mouse Navigation

  • Moving the mouse shows the current sky coordinates of the mouse in the statusbar.
  • Clicking the mouse identifies the nearest object in the statusbar; the object's "long name" is shown
  • Hovering the mouse attaches a temporary label to the nearest object.
  • Hover labels fade out when the mouse moves
  • Hover labels only appear when the map is not in motion
  • Double-clicking attaches a label to the nearest object, centers it in the display, and engages tracking.
  • The double-click label is removed when the object is no longer centered
  • Click-and-drag moves the map such that the cursor remains roughly in the same place in the sky.
  • Dragging the sky disengages tracking
  • Dragging the sky to one of the poles does not cause odd behavior
  • Click-and-drag with Ctrl pressed draws a rectangle in the map that defines a new area to be displayed when the mouse button is released
  • Click-and-drag with the middle mouse button zooms in and out according to the vertical motion of the mouse
  • Scrolling the mouse wheel zooms in and out.
  • Right-click opens a context-sensitive popup menu for the object nearest the mouse cursor.

Keyboard commands

  • Arrow keys: scroll the display. Holding Shift increases the speed
  • [0-9] center on a major solar system body (0 is the sun, 3 is the moon; the rest are planets in order from Mercury to Pluto)
  • [<,>] Advance clock forward/backward by one time step (clock will be paused if it isn't already)

Object Actions:

  • C: Track object
  • D: Open the Details window
  • L: Attach/Remove the label
  • O: Add object to Observing List
  • T: Attach/remove trail (solar system only)

Discovered issues:

Use this section to add issues discovered while testing the program that are not listed above.

  • KStars doesn't know my city's coordinates, while Marble does. Could not they share the a common datasheet with cities' positions?
  • Need to fix DeepSkyComponent::init() so that downloaded ngcic??.dat files will be merged into one ngcic.dat file, as the 4.0 code now expects.

Footnotes

Add footnotes describing issues noted in the main list here.

[1]: Should the epoch box be preset to the current clock's epoch, rather than J2000?
