Description Xwang 2019-07-30 11:54:31 UTC
I'm not able to change how many days forward to execute the forecast.
If I change the default 365 days it keeps calculating the forecast for 365 days.
The same happens for the length in days of the cycle (it use always 30 days)

1. Go to forecast
2. Change forecast days from 365 to 30
3. Click on the Forecast button on the right

On click forecast days is automatically set to 365 agin and the forecast is made for 365 days grouped in 30 days 

The forecast should be executed for the requested forecast days only


Linux/KDE Plasma: Archlinux
(available in About System)

KDE Frameworks 5.60.0
Qt 5.13.0 (compiled with 5.13.0)

The same happens since some versions so I do not know exactly when it has started to misbehave. I think it has happened with 5.0.0, but I'm not sure

Workaround: use the plugin settings to change the values. The plugin settings should only set the default values after program start but apparently have a higher priority. Needs to be fixed.

I can confirm that the workaround works :-)

Pushed by tbaumgart into branch '5.0'.

Respect parameter changes performed by user

Changing the parameters in the forecast view did not have any effect,
because when the user pressed the forecast button or changed the tab in
the view they were reset to their default settings.

This change fixes the problem.
FIXED-IN: 5.0.7
