Throttles submenus in
For best experience, the recommended settings are those illustrated above.
- Cancel button will close the window and leave current Throttles settings as they are.
- Apply button will apply the current set of preferences and the preferences window will stay open.
- Save button will apply, save current Preferences, and close the Preferences Windows, settings will be automatically loaded at next start of JMRI.
Use extended throttleThis setting will enable/disable all extended throttles features.
Set Controls transparentWill set background of throttle internal windows transparent, or semi transparent.
This feature is known to work fine on OS X, but Linux and Windows to be worked on, totally varies depending on curent Java interface look'n feel (modifiable in JMRI main preferences)
Use Roster image as backgroundWhen a roster is selected, the image defined in its Media Panel will be loaded as a background for the throttle window.
When this option is enabled and the selected address is 0 or 3, a default image will be loaded.
Resize window to image sizeWhen a background image is loaded for current throttle, will force the Throttle Window size to the one of that image.
Search Roster info when address enteredWhen an address is entered in the Address Panel, the JMRI Roster database will be searched for a matching roster entry (and will hence triggers options described above and bellow if they're enabled).
Automatic loading Throttle pane preferences when linked to RosterWhen a Roster is selected, if a matching Throttle definition file exist, JMRI will automatically loads it.
These files are stored in <JMRI Preference Folder>/Throttle/XYZ.xml where XYZ in the Roster ID.
Using the Save menu entry from the File menu in a Throttle Window will create or update these files.
Ignore Throttle frame positionFor old Throttle files that contain Throttle Window position in them, do as described.
Note: Throttle Windows position are now saved in the Throttles Layout backup files (not in the Throttles backup files anymore)
Hide undefined Roster function buttonsWhen a Roster is selected, the address panels buttons are initialized as defined in the Functions panel in DecoderPro. If this option is enabled, buttons not defined (no text) in PanelPro will be automatically hidden in the Function Panel.
Note: you can reset Function Buttons visibility in a Throttle Window by going to View Menu and clicking "Show all function buttons".
