Thanks a lot for your reply. I understood it.
And your program is working very well now. I have it in my autoexec programs and it opens every day with cumulus, because my Mini pc Auto restart every day at 00:20. Sometimes cumulus late to download from the sensors, Grabber starts and write 0 for everything.
That is the only small problem i have till now. But your program is so usefull.

Hi Vaggelis,

Just to let you know I have sent you a Private Message, with a "test"
copy of the program which incorporates your request for user selectable
Email Alert re-activation times. :)

All the best

Hi Vaggelis,

That's good news, and am glad I could implement a useful feature for you.

I will give it a couple of days more testing, then if it is still stable I will then
do a 'public release' version.

Regards

Mark

Mark hello
Today we have very bad weather and in a few hours we had about 70 mm of rain. About 17:00 we are out of power and my weather pc was out of order for 10 min about. When the power was back, the weather pc starts and after two minutes start cumulus and the Grabber. But the Grabber, lost all previews records from the day and start from the beggining in grabberindex.htm. Is it possible not to loose the day records and if there is same problem but to continue from the point that it has stop?
Greetings
Vaggelis

Yes, in the current program the data charts start from midnight, or from the time the program is last started which then misses the data from earlier in the day, so that would be a great addition. But expect quite challenging to get the day's realtime data for the time before the current realtime.txt file is read at CRTDG restart.

I have the URL set to my C:\Cumulus\ folder where my realtime.txt file is saved rather than to my website.

I also have Toolbox set to append the realtime.txt file to C:\Cumulus\realtimelog.txt at 0.1 min (but it only saves at a 1 min interval) and with auto prune after 3 days so that that realtimelog.txt doesn't get to huge. Not sure if Vaggelis' request is doable and if this realtimelog.txt file is a possible source for the data.

Regards,
Paul

Hi Vaggelis / Paul,

As Grabber only "grabs" the currently available data from the 'Realtime.txt' file
and writes it directly to the graphs etc. there is no way to look back and
re-populate the graphs on a program restart.

From the very beginning when I started coding 'Grabber', I decided to only
access one file, that being the "Realtime.txt", and have sculpted my program
around this file. Accessing another file that other users may or may not
be using, (or creating an maintaining a database) would entail a massive re-write
of the current program and therefore would take me a vast amount of time to implement,
(and it would probably be easier coding a completely new program from the ground up).
So for this reason I will not be able to do implement this feature, sorry, I hope you understand.

As with any requests I get, I will always try my best to implement them if practical
and I can spare the time to code. As I have a young family now I have to make sure
I am not spending all weekend and weekday evenings locked away in my computer room coding,
which can be easy to do if I get wrapped up in coding ;)

All the best

Mark

Hi Mark and thanks for the reply and I fully understand. I really like the program as is and appreciate all the efforts and time you have given to develop it and then to improve and expand it. Wishing you and family all the best.

Hello Mark,

I'm trying to find tool which can produce log from realtime.txt file. I found Cumulus toolbox but there is problem than Cumulus produce realtime.txt in interval by seconds and toolbox can't, minimum is one minute.

But I found your program and I can see that interval is 15 sec, which is much better, but can I somehow get 8 seconds (refresh rate of my weather station)? In file "updateinteval" I found value from program (15000) If I change value to 8000, will program have refresh on 8 sec?

Second, is it possible to get log from realtime.txt with your application? I found historic chart.txt, but I need historic data

I solved that ;) it works with simple change of updateinterval.txt
