General Stuff / Question about the usage of "Virtual Room"
September 27, 2020, 08:35:33 AM
May I know if my understanding is correct for the following?
1. The virtual room seems like to be a set of rooms.Say the virtual room contains Room A , B, C and D.  When a virtual room is applied for a period, one of the rooms (May be Room A) in the virtual room is used but the other rooms (Room B , C and D in this case) in the virtual room is free.

I am looking for a solution of some situation but I need to have a better understanding of the above first. thank you.
Suggestions / space constraints by distance of rooms
August 19, 2020, 06:02:42 AM
I don't know if I am outdated or overlooked. If there is no such constraints mentioned below , may I suggest it.

Some time we may not want the students to move so far away even when the rooms are in the same building. I limited the choices of rooms of activities by manually .ark a set of suitable rooms in the space constraints. The choices are highly based on the distance between rooms but it may be difficult for the users to mention the distance in many ways in the program.
What if we introduce a coordinate system for the rooms so that the program can calculate the horizontal and vertical distance between rooms? And thus set the space constraints based on the calculated distances?

I don't know if this is a practical idea.
Suggestions / Name the constraints
August 13, 2020, 11:56:21 AM

May I suggest the following:
To provide a custom name field for constraints a
Or to provide an id for constraints.

Benefits: easier to prepare documents for boss or colleagues for the explanation purpose and maintenance purpose.

Trouble: need to redesign the form Windows and many other parts. Maybe, I don't know.

Seems like Z, Chosi does not have enough time slots.
the number of slots each day is 20 , minus two breaks = 18 lessons.
The problem is that all of his/her lessons are even number lessons. Therefore, the effective number of lessons is 16*5=80 only. ( The 1st and last lesson are not effective.)

hello please help on asap...

Check if you have enough programming knowledge to use this tool:

General Stuff / Re: How to change widget style

There is a very easy variant how to change the widget style:
open a command promt (for exmaple by clicking the windows icon in the bottom left corner and write 'cmd')
Navigate to your fet file (for example by writing:
cd downloads
cd fet-5.45.1
By the way: you don't need to write the whole line, only a few charaters and press the tab key)

Now execute fet with this command:
fet -style fusion

do it similar in an other command promt. But start FET with:
fet -style windows

(the same trick should work with most other Qt programms too. So also with TiTiTo, StElTo, ...)

I wrote a windows batch file which runs FET in Fusion style.
The file is a plain text file saved as .bat with the following one line statement:

start /b fet.exe -style fusion

(As it's not allowed to upload a bat file, you may copy the above statement into notepad and save it as fusion.bat in the same folder as your FET.exe program.)
Yes, the group and channel is created. You may just search FET timetabling software in app to find the group. It's just one more way to distribute information while discussing in this forum is more suggested.

I thought it can be used for adding activities/data/constraints but seems like it is not designed for that part.
Thank you.
Get Help / FET Command line help

hi everyone,
I cannot find any documents about the command line version of FET.
I tried to use the "fet --help" to get some text information but I think it would be better if there are some examples.
Maybe I didn't find the correct path of the document.
May anyone of you provide me some help ? thank you very much.
I have to think it twice before I promise anything. There are about 5000 items left in that translation originally. It's not few.

I imported the being-tanslated file to Excel and I think I can output the .ts file but not the .qm file.
Would this tranlated file be accepted?

Thank you
hi everyone,

The FET is great.
The output is a set of HTML files.
The pro is it's universal.
The cons is you may want excel format.
While you can you the conversion tool to make the fet output to an excel file, the sub groups are shown in seperated worksheets.

So how do you polish your output timetable(s)?
1. Try to modify the xml/css
2. Ask assistant(s) to type it again.
3. Use the screen capture in the preview in the app. (which sometimes looks better indeed.)
4. output csv -> use marco to convert.
There was a period that Yahoo! , GeoCities, Google and Hotmail publicly announce their everyday (everynight) maintanence time on their homepage.  ;D ;D

I have been using FET for few years. It's a great app.
