Agreed Brian, quite a few people have rolled their own. What I'd like to know is what data a "gust" gauge would show?

I think what he means is a current (gust) speed gauge as opposed to a average speed gauge
but that default windspeed gauge could be set to use a custom tag from WD that is the gust (current) speed data value anyway instead of the average speed

Ah! I didn't realise that it was using the average speed for the pointer with WD.  #-o

The intent was always to use the "latest" instantaneous value - this is what I set it to do with Cumulus anyway. That is a simple change, it just needs a tweak to the tag file, and is something I will make to the released version. To save me looking it up ;) What tag should I use to the latest wind speed value?

use
%gstspd% ...................current/gust wind speed

instead of
%avgspd% ...................average wind speed (current)

and yes a simple change for anyone ..just change %avgspd% to %gstspd% in the customclientrawlocal.txt in the WD clientrawlocation folder (e.g webfiles)

It may be worth to note that the quality of gust values varies depending on the brand/model of weather station.

OK, now I'm confused, having checked the source the gauge is already using %gstspd% for the pointer - as I thought it did all along! Hence my puzzlement at the requirement for a 'Gust gauge'. #-o

maybe they just want a gauge to show the max gust of the day?
but that is shown as a marker on the windspeed gauge anyway

Or maybe (also) gust last hour, that's the one I find the most useful indicator of conditions. There have been comments before suggesting the gauge gust indicator could/should be more prominent.

Hello Brian and Mark

The question from me was....is there a gauge for displaying windgust alone.
If not....maybe in the next version of the steelseries gauges.
I have no knowledge of javascript  so I need help to making a windgustgauge by myself

Best regards

Bert

do you mean you want to have 2 windspeed gauges, one to show average and one to show current/gust ?

Yes.
One gauge for windspeed and one for display the windgust.
Actual windgust with pointer for the max gust last hour of for today.
Its that possible?

Best regards

Bert

yes its possible
there is some older threads where I have shown how to create an extra gauge
its all doable, just copying/pasting existing code etc and adding a parameter to the customclientrawlocal.txt

a good challenge for someone

I have read that tread and I don't understand what I must do. Wich code must I copy and what must i change. Where can I find it? I'm confused.
Can you give me a example?

I don't really have the spare time at the moment
but it would be a great learning and challenge for someone to do this

if know one does after a while and I find the time, then I could do it
