The 3.7.6 patch

Post by HansR »

Version 3.7.6. is now online

This is a patch release as described in the release post for upper/lower case issue with gauge look and feel parameters.
I make this post out of the release thread for the feedback.

I noticed some you had a problem with the gauges and hangup of realtimegauges.txt from 3.7.3 and up. It seemed related to the reading of the realtime files from another location than the web-root. However I could rule that out. Further investigation - thanks to remote debugging possibilities in modern browsers - I could detect it crashed in jQuery on the basis of something invalid in steelseries. Both of which I could not see. That was weird as it all ran fine on my own site and a test site for replaced realtime files. So after some additional research I concluded some of you had apparently filled in gauge configuration in lower case (or true/false in uppercase). I fixed this CumulusUtils now forces uppercase or lower case where required. I have been able to reproduce the error and solve it with this patch. So I think there is some chance I am right and if you have the possibility: try the patch and if it solves the problem (or not) please report back here.

If this is the right solution, I will create additional checks on the values of these parameters and fall back to defaults in case of user errors while filling in the inifile.

Buenos días Hans :D

Yesterday I installed the version v375 and the page stopped working well.
I have not arrived to install the patch that I have met today

The only thing that has solved the problem, has been to go back to version v369:

Good morning Javier,

Yes, I noticed that you - and other users - had problems with the application. That's a pity. :cry:

The problem occurs since the introduction - so since 3.7.3 - of the parametrisation of the look and feel of the gauges specifically after the change of the foreground. I do have an idea what is going on, but I am not sure. Point is, that the problem does not occur everywhere (I have no problem myself). It is an issue in the steelseries which results in jQuery throwing an exception and thus stopping the realtimegauges to function.

I would be happy if you could send me your cumulusutils.ini.
I am trying to assemble as much information as possible to be more certain of what is going on.

Regards, Hans

Thanks to Hans's help, I have installed the latest version v375 without the patch:

http://kocher.es/cumulusMX/FWI/[url][/url]

What has been the solution to the problem?

Verify in the file "cumulusutils.ini", in the [Website] section, that the data required for Steelseries must be in Uppercase:

Before:

SteelseriesFramedesign=ANTHRACITE
SteelseriesBackgroundColor=BROWN
SteelseriesPointerColour=RED
SteelseriesPointerType=TYPE3
SteelseriesLcdColour=ORANGE
SteelseriesForegroundType=Type1
SteelseriesKnobType=STANDARD_KNOB
SteelseriesKnobStyle=SILVER
ColorTitleBackGroundImage=
SteelseriesDirAvgPointertype=Type3
SteelseriesDirAvgPointerColour=BLUE

After:

SteelseriesFramedesign=ANTHRACITE
SteelseriesBackgroundColor=BROWN
SteelseriesPointerColour=RED
SteelseriesPointerType=TYPE3
SteelseriesLcdColour=ORANGE
SteelseriesForegroundType=TYPE1
SteelseriesKnobType=STANDARD_KNOB
SteelseriesKnobStyle=SILVER
ColorTitleBackGroundImage=
SteelseriesDirAvgPointertype=TYPE3
SteelseriesDirAvgPointerColour=BLUE

Thank you very much Hans :clap:

Thanks Javier. :clap:
That is clear now, I assume this will work for everybody so I will prepare a release which makes user errors for the steelseries settings impossible. :!:

Hope to get it ready ASAP.
