Flightplan wiki error ?

Postby clm76 » Thu Nov 30, 2017 5:07 pm

In the wiki « Nasal flightplan »,, it’s written that the method « cleanPlan() » clears all waypoints including destination and departure.
It’s wrong : Departure and destination are not deleted as we can see with these few lines of code :
Code: Select all
var fp = createFlightplan();       
fp.departure = airportinfo("LFOH");
fp.destination = airportinfo("LFPG");
var navaid = findNavaidsByID("DVL");
navaid = navaid[0];
var wp = createWPFrom(navaid);
print(fp.getPlanSize()); ## return 3
print(fp.getPlanSize());  ## return 2
for (var i=0;i<fp.getPlanSize();i+=1) {
} ### return « LFOH » and « LFPG »

Can I correct the wiki ?

Yes you can you just need to register yourself with a user name and password, I have added things to the Wiki myself, it's that easy hope this helps. All I can say (As I'm no coder) please ensure that the code will work flawlessly, as the last thing you want are disgruntled Flightgear Pilots "shouting your name from the rooftops" If they insert code into Flightgear and it causes crashes!

Consider skimming through the first two sections here (perm). In particular Help:Your first article (perm) will be of help I hope (in particular if you have not worked with a wiki before), even if you just edit an existing article.
