Hello Carsten,

Touchdown!

It was headspace error. In openmap.properties, I was not *replacing* panMouseMode with a reference to the custom class, instead I *added* a new line:

clipboardMouseMode=OpenMapDemo.ClipboardMouseMode

Which untimatley left panMouseMode unchanged.

Thank you so much for your support.

Hi Michael

I did a quick test and it works fine at my desk.

First I did:


package dk.navicon.openmap.gui;

import java.awt.Toolkit;
import java.awt.datatransfer.Clipboard;
import java.awt.datatransfer.StringSelection;
import java.awt.datatransfer.Transferable;
import java.awt.event.MouseEvent;

import com.bbn.openmap.LatLonPoint;
import com.bbn.openmap.MapBean;
import com.bbn.openmap.event.PanMouseMode;

public class ClipboardMouseMode extends PanMouseMode {
    public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent e) {
        System.out.println("ClipboardMouseMode MouseEvent e="+e);
        super.mouseClicked(e);
        LatLonPoint llp = null;
        int x = e.getX();
        int y = e.getY();
        if (e.getSource() instanceof MapBean) {
            llp = ((MapBean) e.getSource()).getProjection().inverse(x, y);
            Clipboard systemClipboard = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit()
                    .getSystemClipboard();
            // format, UTM convert llp here
            Transferable transferableText = new StringSelection(llp.toString());
            systemClipboard.setContents(transferableText, null);
        }
    }

}

The I patched my openmap.properties file to:

#panMouseMode.class=com.bbn.openmap.event.PanMouseMode
panMouseMode.class=dk.navicon.openmap.gui.ClipboardMouseMode

Then I launched OM. If it works you should see that the button in the toolbar for switching to PanMouseMode has lost it's icon and just shows the text "Pan" causing the toolbar to look weird. Now switch to Pan mouse and you should see the print outs like this:

ClipboardMouseMode MouseEvent e=java.awt.event.MouseEvent[MOUSE_CLICKED,(404,177),absolute(592,294),button=1,modifiers=Button1,clickCount=1] on com.bbn.openmap.BufferedLayerMapBean_at_17a1767

BR

        Hello Carsten,
        
        What am I doing wrong? I have a derived class ClipboardMouseMode, and is being properly instantiated/loaded by component factory. I know this because (1) I have enabled componenet factory detail debugging, and (2) because I have placed Debug.Output("ClipboardMouse Constructor") in the constructor, and see that output on the console.
        
        But, debug statements indicate no mouse events are being called, e.g., mousePressed(), mouseClicked(), and mouseDragged().
        
        Have tried:
        
        public class ClipboardMouseMode extends PanMouseMode
        and
        public class ClipboardMouseMode extends NavMouseMode
        and
        public class ClipboardMouseMode extends CoordMouseMode
        
        For each, have tried changing mouse mode using main menu item Control/MouseMode/Navigation... But this does not seem to help.
        
        I am running OpenMap executable using OpenMap.bat found in the bin directory, and with the default openmap.properties (but with my changes) found in openmap-4.6.3 folder. Should I be using a different properties file?

        Hi
        
        Install your own mouse mode via the openmap.properties file, e.g., extend the PanMouseMode and override mouseClicked to do the copy to clip board
        
        class ClipboardMouseMode extends PanMouseMode {
        
          public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent e) {
                super.mouseClicked(e);
                LatLonPoint llp = null;
                int x = e.getX();
                int y = e.getY();
                if (e.getSource() instanceof MapBean) {
                      llp = ((MapBean) e.getSource()).getProjection().inverse(x, y);
                      Clipboard systemClipboard = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit()
                                    .getSystemClipboard();
                      // format, UTM convert llp here
                      Transferable transferableText = new StringSelection(llp);
                      systemClipboard.setContents(transferableText, null);
                }
            }
        
        }
        
        Then add
        
        panMouseMode.class=ClipboardMouseMode
        
        to openmap.properties in your home dir and add ClipboardMouseMode to the classpath before launching OM.

                Hello All,
                
                Question for the group.
                
                When using OpenMap, vanilla installation, no mods, would like to
                right-click and have the s/w place the coord info (lat/lon, or even
                better UTM) on the clipboard. Such that it can then be copied
                (pasted) into another app.
                
                Searched the arhives for "clipboard", not much luck.
                
                Browsing the source, I see that file CoordMouseMode.java derives from
                AbstractMouseMode, and has access to current coord info.
                
                So I think it might be possible to modify the source, and override
                AbstractMouseMode.MouseClick(). But I'm rather not modify the source,
                if there's an alternative.
                
                Question: is it possible to add a layer which does noting more than
                catch mouse events and export data to the clipboard? As outlined in
                the FAQ? This requires registering a mouse listener with the MapBean?
                If this info is already in the list archives, please point it out.
                
                I realize I'm at 30,000 ft. and asking a 3,000 ft question, but time
                is (as always) of the essence.
