Added a QR Code to share the link to the site. Just click into the information menu and Share Link and it will open a dialog box with the QR Code in it. Then someone can scan the code and it will take you the the WhereAreGames main page.

Thanks to some input I made a change to the dashboard layout.

Before all landscape views would move the counter widgets to the left of the army list widget. This shrunk the army list widget to the point of not usable. 

Now only screens larger than 500px will have the counter widgets move to the side in landscape mode. Any other time they will remain at the top of the screen.

Fixed the Command Points information at the top of the Army List widget. It should now show the correct value for the loaded list. 

Made some style changes to the modals. For larger modals they are now scroll-able, before they ran off the screen with no way to access them. The form elements are also a bit smaller on small screens.

I also shrank the minimum with of the app to be able to handle smaller screens, with less scrolling.

Fixed some issues with the army list. With this last update with BattleScribe it seemed to have broke a few unit views. Here is a list of fixes:

  • An ability profile with a unit profile was given a unit two equipment listings.
  • Extra unit stats. There seems to be a shared group stat and the individual model stats were missing. Changed it so that the primary stat is gone and the others are filled in.
  • Duplicate equipment lists on the main army list view. Now it only lists one of the equipment names instead of multiple.

This month I made a few changes with the help of the local gaming group. There was some cosmetic changes that makes the usability a bit better. The Share Target API should make it easier for newer users to load BattleScribe files.

- File Handler API. This only works for desktop operating systems(OS) because of limitations of the browsers. It basically tells the OS to allow the WhereAreGames PWA to be a File Handler for .ros and rosz files.

More ArmyList Updates

I added a couple Web API's to make loading army list files easier. One should work, but only seems to work with one browser on desktop, the other is completely experimental and seems to only be targeting desktop. The first is the Share Target API, which is supposed to be supported on all browsers, but seems to be hit or miss on support. I was able to get it to work with Edge on Windows and worked great. However, Chrome(which is supposed to be the same back end) doesn't seem to register on desktop or mobile. I did try Edge on mobile,but does not seem to register right there either.
