Hi,

This is very useful feature.

I have update all plugins: Patch.3840 and POI to version 3.1.0.4011.

I have check that I have enable feature _EditIconCategory and _UseIconCategory privileges in Admin/Roles menu.

I also can see all the icons in Admin/Icons menu.

In Edit Icon Category after clicking other icon link, the new Icon Picker windows appear but no icon appear at all and button + Use Icon disabled.

Any idea how to solve this? or this is a bug?

Thank you.

Hi piter197,

Do you get a dropdown menu at the top of the icon picker window?

Hi,

Yes, I got drop down menu (Basic Icons Colored and Basic Icons Transparent) before.

Now when I try again (after 6 hour) all the icon appear and I can select and use it. I have try to batch enable the feature and use on other application, and it works.

One more question. Is there any requirement for icon dimension?

thank you.

Icons above 48 pixels wide or high will automatically be resized to the correct size.

Great feature, appreciate all the effort going into providing the new features, such as this and maintenance.

It is a pity this hasn't been done for the Vehicle icon too though, custom icons rather than the arrow/needle, it may seem like an insignificant feature, yet every demo or meeting we go to, one of the first questions they ask is can I change the icon to a pickup, a truck or something else.

On Thursday I had a demo with the logistics manager of a large operation here and the first question he asked me was can you automate my maintenance scheduling, the topic of vehicle icons also came up as they have a wide variety of vehicles including trucks, cranes, generators, pickup's, buses etc...

Often it is the cosmetic things that help close the deal!

Dear Support,

My GGS Core 3.1.0.3840 with Patch.3840 ver 3.1.0.5001.

I found problem with POI Icon, the icon will become NULL if two or more POI Categories using the same icon. This is not happen if the POI categories using standard same colored bullet.


Image
fig.1 Icon normal when 2 POI categories using different icon.


Image
fig.2 Icon become null when 2 POI categories using same icon.


Please check, thank you.
