Hi Tony,

Agree. That one is already on my to do list, I liked the idea myself. But everything which has to do with the javascript timer/interrupt runtime requires additional attention because of the gauge switch system. So with the recent issues around the look and feel of the gauges (which were related to the same issues) this was kind of pushed to the background. I'll put it on the same list as above.

But be assured, it will be implemented, but I am not sure that will be in the next version though it might... if everything appears easier than thought ;)

Regards, Hans

Hi Hans,
Just wondering if it is easy to reverse the Windrose (legend/display).
Reason, I've always displayed them with highest wind on the outer, as there are fewer of them and you can visualise them better, rather than current crammed up in centre of rose.
Like this : https://www.highcharts.com/demo/polar-wind-rose
Kind Regards,
With ref to my question regards reversing the Windrose, I may have not explained that well sorry.
I meant to state " reversedStacks" for the chart itself, as it highlights the higher wind speeds (else they are crammed up in centre of the rose.
See below for change:
From:

Code: Select all

  yAxis: { min: 0, endOnTick: false, showLastLabel: true,
    title: { text: 'Frequency (%)' },
    labels:{ formatter: function() { return this.value + '%'; } }
  },
  
To:

Code: Select all

  yAxis: { min: 0, endOnTick: false, showLastLabel: true,
    title: { text: 'Frequency (%)' },
    labels:{ formatter: function() { return this.value + '%'; } },
    reversedStacks: false
  },

@Tony: OK, missed the stacked display reversal request. No problem. I will make a parameter for it (WindRoseInversed: true/false, default false). This implies a coupling between the legend and the display itself. Of course I could separate those as well, but to be honest that's such small beer that I don't want to, I dislike that type of complexity.

I assume you can live with this. I am currently preparing a next release which will contain this solution but I have to research some things a bit deeper so may take some more days.
BTW: site is still down, hope not too big a problem?

Hi Hans,
Thank you greatly for that, yes combined would be fine matey. The simpler the better works.
Yes my site down since last Saturday due to Davis Vantage Pro 2 Temp/Hum Sensor failure, not bad after about 8 Years in damp wet and hot smokey conditions year in year out.
Hopefully replacement arrives Monday. It actually jumps Temp to 69.9c when they start to fail, so I have a lot of data to clean up in mean time, I shut it down so as to lessen the incorrect logging. Sadly my wxsim onsite forecast was also shut down as a result, so will be about a week and half data loss :(
The tipping edge may have been the relocation from way down south to now up on North East Coast Tas about 200 mtrs from surf beach so lots of salt spray etc. Although what was disappointing was the fact that when we sold up the property down south I sent the entire ISS etc back for complete refurbish before we moved to the new property up north, the Davis boys said Temp/Hum sensors where fine, but they can fail at anytime, just bad luck. I had just finished completing mysql setup again with wxsim comparison etc, now I'll have a bit of work tidying all that up too. What makes it more interesting for me, is that I run Meteobridge Pro Red as well as CumulusMX (I wanted to see how MB worked etc. so trying to maintain both is fun. :D :roll:
Kind Regards,
Tony

Hi Hans,
Updated new version, great thank you all works perfect.
As I'm still sorting out data while waiting for replacement Temp/Hum sensor, no point in supplying a live link till that's sorted, but here's some picks.
Tip: Right Mouse click on images below and select Open in New Tab, to see how it displays in Browser (full size).

Hi Tony,
Thanks, looks great!
I accidentally saw your site live for a short moment yesterday and the pwsFWI showed a purple coloured value in the thousands.
I understand your point not wanting it live now ;) Good luck.
(BTW: you still would publish your modifications, no hurry, but it would be nice. Maybe(!) I'll implement some of it in parameters for easy access.)
Cheers, Hans
