Last batch of changes, and then I would like to merge this upstream
- fixed the visibility of the reset button external control group in settings dialog
- fixed monitoring level in inverted slider appearance
- attempted to fix the rendering issue causing a slider to deadlock. Not sure about this but I think there are still cases where it happens. However, I'm not 100% positive this is related to the latest changes. I've got the impression this was already there and related to the monitoring feature in general

Hi all,

just did some quick tests as this weekend I am quite short of time. I found no issues, better to say I am absolutely lucky with this solution.

@Massimo: Thank you for jumping into this. Only with your large amount of work this great new feature could be implemented into QLC+ (V4.x). Once again I want to say "Thank you". I will have my next large event in April this year and with this feature in QLC+ I am looking forward to do my job with a new quality of tool.

If there is anything I can help with the further development of QLC+ (I am not a developer), please let me know.

Have a nice rest of the weekend!

Martin

I tested this and it works pretty good. So from my point of view this could be merged.
Again I want to thank you for all your work. I'll be able to test this in detail at a venue next weekend but I'm confident the new feature will do a great job! :)

Very good !
Thanks everyone for testing and reporting with feedbacks.
Tomorrow I'll merge the changes upstream, together with documenting it

Thank you Massimo for your great work.

I was very busy the last week and not able to test it, but the comments here sound very promissing.

Please don't mind me to bring this up again. In preparation of an event next week I played around a bit more with the feature and so far it looks great!
I noticed that the new behavior is also applied to knobs, which I really like because I can use everything all over my BCF 2000. The only thing is, that the level bar is not displayed at all (which absolutely makes sense because a knob is a radial not a linear control) but I wondered if there could be a way to display the actual monitored level, too. Maybe one of you has an idea?

Regards,
siegmund

So after that long time i was able to test the whole thing.

The implementation totaly fits my needs, so i can return to current git master branch on my self made lighting desk.

For the first quick test everithing seems to be smooth and stable :)
Will test it under real circumstances next weekend, have some workshop there, and can test current git version in live environment without ruining the show if something went wrong :)

Thanks again massimo for taking over and integrating this feature, was really a showstopper for me.

I have just had a chance to build a Mac OSX version from the latest source and am finding that the screen is freezing if I enable more than 2 or 3 sliders.

See this video. https://www.dropbox.com/s/eme8xq7y60czu ... s.mp4?dl=0

You can see that DMX is still being produced but the slider graphic isn't changing.

I am using the lastest version on MAC OSX and using the attached workspace.

I am away on holidays and don't have access to other operating systems to test.

Please try now. Deadlocks should be fixed.

Built a new version this morning.

Testing was better, but was able to reproduce the same locking behaviour.
