Summary0003502: call sign lookup in ALE doesn't fill all field types correctly
DescriptionThe new call sign lookup code standardizes on a representation for its results (in contrast to the previous implementation, which picked apart individual data types for each of the data sources). The new code presently only sets data to text controls; it won't correctly find (or add?) and select text strings in combo boxes ... or any other non-text control, really.

Steps To Reproduce1) Start up the Logbook. Empty database is probably best, but no real requirements.
2) Use the "Callsign Lookup" menu in the "Settings" tear off of the "Tools" menu
3) In the resulting "Callsign Lookup" dialog, remove all lookup sources except
4) Use the "QRZ" tab to make sure QRZ is correctly configured with your account
5) Press "OK" to save these settings
6) Invoke the ALE to add an entry
7) Enter "K7ZCZ"
8) Press the "Lookup" push button

When results appear, the "Name" and "Address" fields are correctly populated

BUG#1) The "Country" drop-down on the main part of the ALE window is not set;
neither is the "County" drop-down on the Location tab
TagsNo tags attached.

Issue 3497 reveals that FLD_QSO_RIG will come back from call sign lookup operations. Because FLD_QSO_RIG is not mentioned in the spreadsheet part of the specification (the file CallsignLookupMapping32 (most_current)c.xlsx for now), this is a surprise.

This checkin is made to compensate, and adds mapping and handling for FLD_QSO_RIG:

Yes, we've found a number of surprises as we work through this. I'll update the field mapping spreadsheet and we'll have a correct one as of the time we complete this.

I do not see the address populated.

Again, it depends upon which callsign lookup method you use.

When the rest of the lookup methods are working correctly, I'm going to record a video describing the behavior of this and add some documentation in the wiki.

Should the name be duplicated in the address field of the Location tab?

K2IE; No. The name should not be duplicating in the address field of the location tab. Which lookup method are you using?

I am using I took a look at some older loggings from 2011 and they also have the name in the address field. So it has been putting the name in the address field for some time.

To clarify...

The address field should be in the following format:

name, callsign
city, state zip

This is the field used for mailing labels... so we do need the name in there.

What was happening (and what I thought you were referring to) is that the name was being repeated below country (for some lookup sources). We needed to fix that.
