Summary0002858: Logbook: QSO Forwarding options are not correctly scoped
DescriptionThe QSO Forwarding options let the user set the application to listen for QSO announcements from other applications as UDP broadcasts; or send QSO announcements to other applications as a UDP braodcasts. The send and receive can be turend on or off, and the port numbers used can be configured.

The UI implies that these options are application-wide, and will affect all opened databases. However, the options only work for the currently open database. The options are globally stored, though -- each database doesn't have its own state for the persistence of these options.

Further, closing the database which is actually correctly listening will stop the application from listen at all, and further notifications won't be received.

Sending works a bit differently, but is similarly poorly factored over the use of multiple databases.

This will take some design work to fix. We should decide how the sends are meant to be generated, how the receives are menat to be processed; and how the settings should be represented in the UI in a way that's easy to understand and verify.
Steps To Reproduce1) Open the Logobook
2) Open your favorite database
3) Use the "Configure" tear off in the "Tools" menu to find the "QSO Forwarding" command
4) In the resulting "QSO Forwarding" dialog, mark the "Receive logbook changes"
5) Close the dialog
6) Open a second logbook database
7) send the Logbook a UDP packet announcing a new QSO on the configured port

BUG#1) The application will log the QSO in one logbook database, but not the other

Note that Step 7 is kind of hard due to bugs in the handling of the UDP packet parsing.
TagsNo tags attached.

I just tested this and - from what I can see - it is not fixed. Here are the steps I took and the results I found:

1) Open the Logobook
2) Open your favorite database (WA9PIE)
3) Use the "Configure" tear off in the "Tools" menu to find the "QSO Forwarding" command
4) In the resulting "QSO Forwarding" dialog, mark the "Receive logbook changes"; select the "WA9PIE" database (logbook)
5) Close the dialog
6) Switch to a second logbook database (KB3NPH Log)... making it the active database (the only database tab open)
7) Send the Logbook a UDP packet announcing a new QSO on the configured port

Result) The application logged the QSO in the "KB3NPH Log", rather than the "WA9PIE" log as selected in the QSO Forwarding dialog box.

MB... take a look at my notes and let me know if I'm testing it wrong... or if it still needs fixing.

Putting FIV back... I changed it by accident.

The symptom reported by W8PIE is primarily tracked by Mantis issue 2888 which was addressed with this checkin:

Given W8PIE's topic will be tracked in 2888, I'll be closing this one as done.
