Summary0002122: Slow to open "PTT" and "Modes + ID'" in DM-780 Program Options.
DescriptionFor quite some time we have noticed it takes a considerable amount of time to open the "PTT" and "Modes + IDs" in the DM-780 Program Options menu. At times when selecting these items, the program indicates it is "NOT RESPONDING" for up to 30+ seconds, then it finally recovers and opens the dialog selected.

Steps To Reproduce1. Load DM-780
2. Select "Program Options" either from the Tools menu or by clicking the icon on the main toolbar.
3. When Program Options opens, from the menu on the left, select "Soundcard", "Logbook", or any option OTHER than "PTT" or "Modes + ID"
4. Notice other options open almost immediately.
5. Select "PTT" and notice how long it takes to access the dialog compared to other options
6. Select "Modes + IDs" and again notice how long it takes to access the dialog compared to other options

If you watch the program header, when selecting PTT or Modes + IDs, the program will go "non-responsive" for a period of time but it will then recover on it's own and open the selected dialog.
TagsNo tags attached.

These two tabs include controls that contain lists of serial ports on the machine. The code in the app tests for all ports: COM1 through COM255, which can take some time.

I'll see if there's a faster way ...

I found a faster way.
Checked into the mainline code branch:
