CDS and Ezigrade

Feature added that allows one to switch seamlessly between running a job in CDS and then running the job in Ezigrade. If you are in running a job in CDS2 then from "file menu - close and open in ezigrade" then job is opened within Ezigrade. If Ezigrade is not running then it is started up. If it is already running the job is opened with the current instance of Ezigrade. This also works when going from Ezigrade to CDS2.

Ezigrade 2.0.46

When creating Trimble Field Level FMX .gps file the benchmark points were incorrect.

Ezigrade 2.0.45

Fixups with Trimble .gps import and export.

The .gps file contains two blocks of data. The first one contains design heights. The min and max limits along X and Y axis were not always correct and was leading to a mismatch with the total number of points in the array.

The second array contains the amount of cut and fill in an array. The total number of points for this array was not always correct. We were also putting out this data reversed. ie cut was being put out as a fill value and vice versa. On Trimble FMX display this was showing with the colours reversed from what was expected. The grading still works OK though as bucket is driven from current GPS height and design value in the design array.

When exporting the Field Level 2 file we have added in a progress bar so that user knows something is still happening.

When creating short line / short arc tables the reference number was doubled up in the shortline and the short arc table. For example if there were three arcs there defining reference numbers were 1,2 and 3. The first three short lines were the same. This has been fixed.

When exporting to Leica instruments / machines etc via dbx file the strings went missing. Leica road runner expects strings to be exported to the intermediate landxml file as a "planfeature". We had changed them to alignments.

When creating route curves (Cogo - Curves - route curves) the software would put out transition spiral's even if the transition length was zero. This is now fixed.
