Another result display is now available. On top of being in english, it offers the following features.
It may be on the same computer than Wbridge5 or an other computer which has also access to the Internet: on can play on one computer and see the results on the other one.
The basic principle is build on multi window setup: there is one window for each specific information. so your screen may look as such:
One can all together see, on one screen (or many if available), Wbridge5 in order to play, the results, the roadmap and an arry displying the synthesis for the selected player.
The first ime you wish to connect you will be requested to enter your email and password. Once done, if there is only one player using this display, it will connect automatically when launched. If there are many, then you can browse in order to select one.
- Play: will open the Wbridge5 in either mode: standard and full screen. This later mode is got in switching the screen resolution to 800x600 pixels. When closing either Wbridge5 or the display, the initial resolution of the screen will be restaured. When launched thru this menu, your convention sheet will be sent to the server which will show them to the other players on demand.
- commentaries: according to the displayed board, the number of posted commentaries will be displayed. This menu will allow to open a window with commentaries. In this window, if a player pseudo is selected then this will open a information window about what have done this player on that board.
It is possible to add one if wished. There is a dedicated tool bar for suit symbols, smileys, and font management.
Internet link will be highlited and may establish a connection to the reference.
- View Board
This menu item will open a new window with the major informations concerning a selected player on a given board.
In the upper part, hand diagram, in the middle the auction and the result and in the lower part the PAR of the deal.
Two extra buttons may appeat on that window:
- Cards to see how the player has done
- Conv to display the conventions if known by the server
One can browse the players in selecting them in another window.
Played displays the list of all the tournament played yet.
Roadmap displays the result for each board of the tournament. Picking one board in this list will see all the opened windows to adjust their content to it.
to be done
Update: this item will show up only if the server has detected that your versionning of the program could be updated. You can choose to postpone, to do it at the end of the session or immediately. note that in taht case that windows requires all updating programs to be shut down.

Juste au dessous de la barre de menu se trouve un tableau avec le résultat obtenu sur chaque donne.
just below the menu bar are the results of the boards.
One can browse the results selecting a Tab with a left click. Right click on a selected tab will display the comments.
