Forgive my attempt on a screen shot, but here it is.
I was unable to recreate the horizontal/vertical lines but they are the same as these only they come in the NE or SW corner of screen. I can keep trying to find that situation if it will help.

Any chance of posting a screengrab to illustrate this problem, because I'm struggling to picture it from your description here :?

I may have been giving that some thought, yes...

It should work either way - if the AM layer is already turned on then it uses the AM area data already loaded by WME itself, otherwise it requests that data itself as you pan/zoom the map view. One niggly bit of behaviour I've noticed (and will try to address in a future release) is that this self-request mechanism doesn't work when you first open up a location via the search box, it's only once you then nudge the map view even by a single pixel that it's able to pull in the data itself.

Thanks for this Twister-UK, another great addition to an already great script.

I had actually noticed the request for this functionality in the Addons, Extensions, and Scripts forum, and was seriously thinking about using this as the basis for my first WME script (I'm a software developer by day myself), but you beat me to the punch... :D

Ah, ok. Yea, I just tried turning on the AM layer, and then the script does display the information as you move the mouse around, even though my name still doesn't appear in the layer display itself. So that's cool.

Ok, I'd like to modify my recommendation regarding the "disclaimer" to be that you should indicate that it only really works if you've got the AM layer turned on in the map editor display. :-) I sure agree with bz, though, it's a far sight better than what gets displayed by the layer itself. ;)

I just tested in the US and (provided you have display area managers layer on) URO+ shows ALL area managers for the area under the mouse, even though you can't find them on the map.
for example, an area near my home shows
PaintManNO (5), sketch (6), bz2012 (5)


This sure fills the 'hole' left by the poor WME display of that information.

I'd be interested to hear if this is still identified as a problem.

In my experience, the issue is that the contiguous AM area extends off the screen and the username only appears once in the whole area (centered).

That seems to be working now, thanks!

BTW, you might want to put in some kind of "disclaimer" (for lack of a better term) regarding the new feature that's supposed to show what Area Managers have been assigned to the area under the mouse. If it's getting that information from the AM layer of the map, then it's going to be of limited usefulness. At least here in the US, there's been a long-standing issue with that layer not showing the current AMs. I had noticed several months ago that my username doesn't show up when I turn on that layer in the map and I asked my RC about it - who informed me of the long-standing issue.

So until Waze programmers get around to fixing that particular issue, that feature of the extension is going to be, as I said, of limited usefulness. :D
