This is a low priority indeed. The issue you will face is that the forcing function sketchpad will not be accessible in the plugin. The fix: plot the forcing function in zedgraph and make the background slightly gray to show the user that it is not editable.

Sherm, this one still belonged to Joe H.
Please re-assign or fix it in a lost moment ;)

I can move the sketch pad classes to ScInt? Shared. Let me invest 5 mins to see how much work that would be.

  • Milestone changed from Ecopath 6 to Ecopath 6 TODO

In EwE5, the run Ecosim form is capable of displaying Network Analysis indicators. This works fundamentally different in EwE6. We *could* add display of Fishing Effort under the Network Analysis Indices graph in a collapsible split panel.

Good news: while this issue was pending, the shape sketchpad migrated into ScInt? shared. The technical challenge here is minor.

However, is this change really wanted?

Please, allow me be opinionated here.

  • In EwE5 the Network Analysis indices were displayed in the Run Ecosim form.
  • In EwE6, Network Analysis has its form with inputs and outputs. The tight connection between Network Analysis and Ecosim was removed simply because Network Analysis was developed as a plug-in.

We could emulate the EwE5 layout by repeating the Effort interface under the Network Analysis form, but why not use the current capabilities of EwE6? We have this wonderful capability to reorder the screen and to dock forms wherever we please. This allows users to set up a screen any way they like (see attached image)

As far as I can see, the current layout allows users to approximate the EwE5 feel, but also to do very different things. This could mean that this change request is obsolete. What do you think, Sheila?
