Left/Right Panning Problem?

Citizen Sky is now officially permanent part of the AAVSO. In the coming weeks we will be moving additional content to the AAVSO site and freezing this site as an archive of the 1st three years of the project. Please visit the new landing page for future updates.

Is anyone else having trouble with the new left or right panning buttons? They don't seem to be doing anything. The up/down ones on the other hand work great.

This is what I did:

- selected a star from the AAVSO Database (Gamma Cas) and loaded the default JD range.
- zoomed in on a small portion of the light curve
- clicked the left or right panning buttons (nothing happened)

I am using a PC with WinXP and Java 1.6.0_22

This actually brings up a larger question... Does anyone see the need for up/down panning at all? In the kind of work I do with light curves, I have never felt the need for it, but it would be interesting to hear other people's thoughts on this. Other than this small thing, I haven't found any other problems.

Thanks David! Your testing procedures documentation is fantastic.

Panning: opposite problem

Hi Sara Interestingly, I have the opposite problem with the dataset you mention (Gamma Cas): the left and right panning buttons work fine for me when I zoomed in, whereas the up and down panning buttons do not. Which portion of the plot did you zoom in on? Did you download the dataset via New Star from Database or via a file downloaded from the AAVSO web site? I am using Mac OS X 10.6.5 with Java 1.6.0_22.

My motivation for up/down panning is: ifyou're zoomed in and want to see just above or below where you are, you can pan up or down. I'm just not according any special status to domain or range values in that regard. Thanks for your comments so far. Regards, David


Whoops. I misspoke. I too was having trouble with the up/down panning and left/right worked OK for me. So at least our findings are consistant!

Found the problem...

Sara, all It turns out that all my up/down panning testing used file input, not database input. The code that determined min and max mags was not being invoked for database input, only text input. I just wasn't calling an existing common method. Thanks for spotting this. I'll commit the fix soon. This is exactly why we need more testing and more scenarios than one or two people have time for. Regards, David
