Summary0001941: Log with tabs SHOW ALL or MILESTONES ONLY
DescriptionMaybe it is good to introduce a message filter on importance or better two logs. See attached screenshot with some sketching as an idea

Add two tabs:

tab 1, show all
tab 2, milestones only

Some messages are important as focusing successful and precision slew successful. Others are less interesting. I notice that I often have to go back to "show current log" to see of focusing was successful because it scrolls away in a few seconds.

Depending on priority a message is only written to the existing log or additional to the milestone/important log.

I add the message filter by log level:

Now I need to classify every message.
The default level is 1, so everything not classified is show.
For testing I set the "Connecting..." message to 2 and every message from the driver to 3.

The tabs as you show are good but this need some work to hide them when the mouse is not over, and be sure they work if the log tool is placed on the top of the screen.
So for simplicity I only use vertical speedbutton for this first test.

More messages are now classified:

Level 1 : show only the main steps when running an automated sequence
Level 2 : show more information, useful when using the tools manually
Level 3 : show all the details as in previous version

I remove the button and you can use tabs that appear when the mouse is in the message area:

Great! I think this is a signification interface improvement for the casual user. He will keep track of what's happening and he is not flooded by messages.

Maybe the preceding numbers 1:, 2:, 3: are not required in the summary, but it helps to classify in this phase.
I tried to follow the code, but couldn't find it quickly. Is it sorted depending on the tab or do you maintain three tmemo's?

I just fixed the tabs position and transparency on Windows.

All the messages are put in the TStringList AllMsg. It is added to the memo if the level match.
When the level change, the memo is cleared and a loop in AllMsg add the matching messages.
This is in Tf_main.NewMessage and Tf_main.LogLevelChange

There is no performance problem because the number of message was already limited to 100. I can increase this limit a bit if there is not enough messages when filtered to level=1.

Yes this is a very useful feature.

I do a few more change:
- to not display the number on the screen, but let it in the log file.
- be sure every driver exception message is of level 1.
- save the selected log detail for the next session.
- translate the tab text.

I close the issue now but please send me any message you think is misclassified.
