HP Elements (touch periodic table app) - New version
Hi everybody,

Here is a new version of the periodic table :

I added the new discovered elements with their official names.

Enjoy

Thanks Mic! It's very nice to have an updated table. :-)

I noticed that keyboard navigation has been somewhat broken when attempting to navigate up and down between the Lanthanoids / Actinoids and elements 113-118. This is due to the way I've hard-coded the navigation routine. Would you like me to fix this for you and upload a revision?

RE: HP Elements (touch periodic table app) - New version
Thanks Mic, I made the needed changes that same day, but I guess I don't have notifications turned on for this thread and didn't get your reply until now. :-)

The update fixing the keyboard navigation for the additional elements is attached to this post.

I must say, though, that I feel really stupid right now. I don't write or edit Prime apps very often and have forgotten how to transfer an edited program back to the PC in a format that I can upload here to the forum.

I must have known how to do this in the past, since I've made updates to this app before, lol. I seem to recall that perhaps use of the emulator is required, but I don't have it installed at the moment. Still, I managed to force my way through by taking a full backup of the calculator, extracting just the updated Elements app, and then zipping it.

Could someone remind me of the 'proper' method, please?

Eric

I'm uploading a new version with a minor correction of this bug : when the "electronegativity" screen was displayed and then ESC key pressed, then we had a white screen when the app is started.

Hi Mic,

I'm running 13333 on the physical prime and not able to reproduce the problem. Is it possible that the electronegativity image is missing or corrupt on your device?

Hw and VC Prime select electronegativity then press ESC, sometimes, HW not always, VC always, leads to a blank screen.

I think it is a memory problem.
I don't remember this issue before the last firmware.

Yes, I have been looking at the code and don't see what could be causing this yet.

When I run before some games app like Race32, Goal, etc... , then the periodic table is displayed again.

I would think that this is because the program is still running (sort of) in the background and never cleans up after itself. There is no way to just start and stop programs in the HP Prime, and it's very frustrating to program in such an environment. Not to mention the fact that writing a program is like hitting a moving target because each time the firmware is updated the language itself changes and breaks previous functionality.

I'm trying to figure out why, but there currently seems to be no way to cleanly exit, either with QUIT or ESC and then get the program to start back up again and display the table. The only way I can get it to run again is by resetting the calculator. At least that's the way mine works. If there was some way to clear all of the program's variables, graphics, etc. and reset back to a clean slate upon exit, at least that would be something, but I have no idea how to do that.

I also note random characters appearing in the INFO window from time to time, but this has been the case since the beginning and I'm not sure what causes it or if it's related.

Great to hear that it's working again. :-)

I'll have to install the latest firmware soon. My apologies for the slow responses recently. I have been very busy and not able to devote much time to keeping up with things here.
