Hi

There's no doubt the svg viewer is a great improvment in Weather Display, however, it happends with me that, once I tick to produce clientraw.txt file, all data items, suddenly, become different: temperature falls about 7ºC, pressure rises about 20mb, and so on...
And more, even if I untick to produce clientraw.txt, data becomes unstable, sometimes showing the right values, sometimes not. To regularize it, I must go to Action/View and correct the log file/rain totals, where data is appearing completely mad, copy the last good line to the end of disturbed data, change date, hour and minute if needed, in order tu put things right.
I must say that I unticked the clientraw.txt production from over a URL, so there's no chance, I guess, that this strange data comes from another place over Internet.
I'm using version 9.96a with a wireless WMII.

hi
try checking in the client/server setup, bottom right hand corner, you do not have tiocked, use the clientraw.txt file from this location
(but it sounds like you have checked that?)
worse comes to worse, go to action, backup regsitry, click on back up, then email me the file wdisplayftp.reg from the databackup folder

i have nearly finished adding the gust pointer code
(been at playcenter with the kids this morning)

New problem
« Reply #2 on: November 12, 2003, 10:12:31 PM »
Hi, Brian

Well, this time all went right, I really don't know why, but maybe because I did things the same way, but in the opposite order. Possible? The truth is I only get data errors in barometer, but resetting WD everything goes ok.
But...
When I uploaded the files from svg.zip to the server, everything seemed to be ok. Then, when I tried to open svg.htm, nothing happends. I looked up on the server to see if there were no problems, and main.svg simply wasn't there. I can't get it uploaded to the server. Can you help me with this, or the server simply doesn't accept the file for any reason?

Cheers

humm
the setup files:
http://www.weather-display.com/downloads/svgextra.zip

contains all the files, needed, and you need to upload all those files from that zip file, including the .js  java script file and the background.jpg file, etc
but first you need to alter 2 of them, svg.htm, i.e the name of you station, and any other html you want to add
and
main.svg
here you need to set the url for the clientraw.txt
(its set to use mine)

and the default units to start with (default is Metric, but you could set to English  , note this is case sensitive)

you can use, in wd, to updload the files:
action, manage by ftp server
or
under setup, ftp/internet setup, manual upload
and choose each file in turn

Brian:

I did it again, to be sure of every step. I changed the files the way you said, I uploaded them...
The problem is that one of the files, the one named main.svg, after being uploaded to the server, simply disappears from it, no matter how many times I upload it.
And the result is this:

Brian:

I just found out what it is... the server only accepts these kind of files: .html .htm .gif .jpeg .jpg .bmp .tif .png .txt .css .js .swf .mid .class .jscript, and .zip.

Is there anything I can do?

oh, i see...

maybe you could try contacting the web hosting people and see if they will allow svg files?

Hi, Brian

Let's imagine the guys from the server don't give me the chance of uploading main.svg... isn't it possible to have the files for SVG on another server and all the rest on the main server? If possible, how can I do it?
Thanks again

hi
yes, you can do that
and just have the url to the clientraw.txt file to the server you are updating with WD
but to view it, you need to let IE view data from across domains:In IE, go to Tools > Internet Options > Security Tab. Select Internet, then select Custom Level. Select Access Data Sources Across Domains from the Miscellaneous

Clientraw stops
« Reply #14 on: November 15, 2003, 12:07:18 PM »
Any reason that the clientraw.txt uploads for about 12-18 hours then stops? If I rerun the program, it starts again ... until about 12-18 hours.
