Allow manual refresh of Pocket Query list

Viajero Perdido shared this idea 6 months ago

Hi.


Sometimes I create a new Pocket Query of geocaches. I receive the email; the PQ is available. Now, how can I get Locus to realize there's a new PQ available? Pull down, nothing happens, hmm. Exit Geocaching Tools, no difference. Exit Locus completely and wait, restart, still no new PQ in the list.


Eventually Locus does notice.


My suggestion, of course, is: allow a manual refresh of the list. Simple.


BTW, just now I managed to successfully import the new PQ on one of my devices (after some fuss), but a minute after that, on my other device, exiting Locus completely and restarting still didn't cause Locus to see the new PQ.

Good day Viajero,

thank you for your idea. "Refresh button" added into dialog to bottom part.

About issue: if there will be any crashes in app after certain action, best is to create and send an error log based on this description: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:faq:how_to_create_debug_log

Thanks

Hi, I found a small issue: if I have no pocket query till now (or they had been older and deleted by GC), then there is no list of pq that could be refreshed. Even after requesting a pq on GC and successfully creating, still running locus doesn't recognize to update the "empty list". Workaround: New start of locus lets "new read" the list and then also the new refresh button is visible ;-)

Thanks druki, good point.

I'll improve it to next version. More easy will be to change caching of list of available PQ files. In case, there won't be any available, Locus simply won't cache this result. So everytime you tap on "Load PQ files", it will reload list. In case, there will be at least one file, list and also "reload" button will be visible, so no problem.

Hi. I'm waking up this old thread because I just noticed a glitch.

In the current Pro version, the REFRESH LIST is such a light grey that it's almost invisible. It looks as if it's disabled. But it's not disabled; tapping it does refresh the list.

Ah thanks, you are correct. I've change style of bottom buttons and this is an untested result. Thanks, will be fixed in next version.
