#178 closed defect (fixed)

Import of pilot information from WPRS loses country

Reported by: joerg@… Owned by: Stein Tore Erdal
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.2.12
Component: FsComp Version: 1.2.12
Keywords: Cc:


Scenario: I have a long participant list in FS, and now remember that the competition is actually an FAI-2 comp. So I want to synchronize it as far as possible with the WPRS database. So I open each pilot, click on "Search CIVL db" and pick the pilot from the list that opens up (if he's on that list). All the fields, like name in correct order, CIVL ID, glider info etc. are then transferred into the Participant Details.

Except for the Nation. If I already had a nation selected before, it is now empty, and I have to set it again myself. Would be nice if that field was imported from the WPRS database as well, or at least if the import didn't overwrite the existing value.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Trouble with FAI nation codes vs ISO nation codes. A few countries including Switzerland has different codes: SUI and CHE in the two systems.

Anyhow this is now fixed so that any of the codes should work (FS 1.2.12 updated 20090510-0053+2).

The webservice providing data is also improved so it will better find matches regardless of the order of the words in a name. Ie searching for "Steve Cox" or "Cox Steve" should both find the person. Will also find "Stein-Tore Erdal" or "Stein Tore Erdal" (with or without dash).

Note: two options in the "Participant Details" dlg, one can search for person and get all details about a person replaced with the first button "Search CIVL web" next to the name field, or one can get only the CIVLID with the second button next to the CIVLID field.
