EVENTS info
« on: May 08, 2017, 01:12:28 AM »
Show details about each specific event in the event tab, so that you don't have to go in to each one to see what it's doing.

ETA: forgot this - a way of sorting  events would be handy.

I guess it would be possible to change the events table so that it was multi-line.  But what other information would be valuable to display?  The trigger?  Conditions?  What about the Actions?  There could potentially be a lot of information.

The problem here is that the ordering of events is important and can effect how they fire.  For example, you may have an event that plays a sound at the end of every round.  However, you decide you want a special sound to play at the end of round 5, which is when rebuys for your tournament end.  The first event fires at the end of any round.  The second event fires only at the end of round 5.  The events system looks through the events, from top to bottom, to find one with the right trigger and matching the current tournament conditions.  If the "any round" event is listed first, it will always fire, even at the end of round 5.  Once an event is fired for a trigger, no other events fire.  Therefore, the "round 5" event would never get fired.  If the "round 5" event is listed first, it will be selected at the end of round 5, but skipped at the end of every other round since it is specific to round 5.  The "any round" event would fire in those cases.
