Hello, Guatemalan here 0/

Is it normal that I cannot see Toolbox at all? The Chrome extension is enabled, and I get the text above the screen when I load WME saying that the plugin is being initialized, and then "Country changed to Guatemala", but the Toolbox button at the toolbar is gone, as is the tab on the left pane. I cannot access any features anymore. :cry:

It's back. Thank you so much!

Q: How do we appoint a TbCC? We're a small community, I don't even think we need one, but I can pass the info to our Country Manager. :)

Read the second post, the GCs will nominate a TbCC. If you're country doesn't have a GC, I image the country coordinator can nominate one. They would contact the TB developers directly with their nomination.

Thanks. Yeah, we don't have a GC, that's why I asked, sorry for not being completely clear. I'll mention it to our CM, but as I said, I don't believe our country warrants special permissions for now.


I keep having issues with Toolbox. It's sort of intermittent. Funny thing is that it still marks roads with the settings I had (e.g. roads with time restrictions).

I don't know if it helps your investigations, but I have found that I can force Toolbox to reappear by navigating away from WME and then hitting the back and forward buttons on the browser a couple of times. I'm using Chrome.

Hey, I maintain a script that adds other background maps (such as cadastral maps) as a new layer to the map. (no, I'm not yet ready to go public with it yet) The script puts this layer on the second spot (just above the default Google satellite imagery) and lets OpenLayers generate the necessary z-index values. The speeds added by WME Toolbox however are at a z-index that is too low for this to work.

Current situation:
z-index 100: Google satellite imagery
z-index 101: WME Toolbox-provided polylines to show the speed of a street segment
z-index 330: a custom layer with cadastral data by my script
z-index 335: the layer containing all cities
z-index 340: the layer containing all roads
Note that z-indexes for cities and roads are usually 330 and 335. But this is managed by OpenLayers.

Currently, the code simply sets this z-index as 101:

Code: Select all

this.LineLayer.setZIndex(101);
It would however be better if you use the setLayerIndex() function of OpenLayers to put the layer at the location of the roads layer to push it up. That way the z-index will always be generated correctly.
This can be achieved like this:

Code: Select all

Waze.map.setLayerIndex(this.LineLayer, Waze.map.getLayerIndex(Waze.map.getLayersBy('uniqueName', 'roads')[0]))
If you really want to continue setting the z-index of the road layer instead of letting OpenLayers manage the z-index, I propose this sort of adjustment:

Code: Select all

this.LineLayer.setZIndex(Waze.map.getLayersBy('uniqueName', 'roads')[0].getZIndex()-1);
I haven't tested this myself though. A check on whether the result is actually higher than 0 and better protection against the case where this layer does not exist (name change in WME or so) would be adviced.

Slightly related: it would also make sense to me that when the roads layer is hidden, those lines are hidden as well. Those speed limits are closely connected to the roads, I'd say.

I hate this to say.
Are we talking about 28672 or I'm wrong?
I found a file that is 28672 bytes, name = bootstrap.js .

I'm not guilty - MS Excel says 28672 / 7 = 4096

Hi,

I'm not sure this has been requested before (it probably has), but as with segments, is it possible to have a property editor for places? I live in an area where many places have an incorrect city name and unlike segments' properties that can be changed in bulk, I cannot do that with places.

Thanks!
