Hi folks

Following on from the latest ai.cmx build, I have made a small number of changes to three files and the readme text.

The 'Show Davis Info' button now latches between sessions so if you leave it hidden, it stays hidden - (for those of you who don't use Davis Stations.)

As pointed out below, the Davis stats were being updated far too frequently so now they update every minute. The same is true for notifications of new records. The Temperature, Winds, Rainfall and Pressure panels on the dashboard will pulsate when a new record is recorded. Hopefully it isn't too striking and won't distract you.

Finally, the 'Readme' document includes details about the styling of units on the Data Logs pages (all three). Those of you not using metric units will need to edit all three pages.

Just found this thread and thought I would give this interface a try.

Is the post from Fri 04 Feb 2022 11:19 am the correct one to use?

I have read the entire thread and there are MANY downloadable files.
Just want to make sure I get the latest and greatest. :)

Read the readme file from the most recent zip file and I want to change the metric units to inches/Fahrenheit...etc. for the log editors.
I am not a web designer or coder. I can do wonders with Fortran though. :)

What file do I edit?

It may be easier to check the download link in the Wiki page by Neil Thomas.
That confirms you have found latest link. That Wiki page contains a lot of useful guidance, although I did not spot anything about changing units!
The most recent forum post by Neil does tell you that you must edit 3 files to change away from metric units, so read that post again.

Hi all

For this of you using the AI you will need to update the AI to. The latest build is on the wiki. This enables you to edit the records pages in the same way as the default interface.

Enjoy

Neil

I think you meant that to end with 'too', not 'to' and to type 'those', not 'this'.
Anyway, I gather you meant (in my words) "If you are a AI user, I have released an updated AI version reflecting changes in new MX release".

This suggests the only changes you have made in your new release relates to the new pop-up for extreme record editing pages.

Can I draw your attention to the following in Mark's release announcement for his MX 3190:
Weather Diary editor changed to improve accessibility of the Date Picker
Anyone who uses the weather diary may have noticed that when you first install 3190, a routine in MX actually reads old diary file, then creates a new diary file (with same file name, but obviously some changes to content in database table within file). In my case, my MXDiags file discloses this.
Mark's announcement does not give any precise details, but you definitely need to rewrite your action taking script weathereditor.js (which you do not seem to have edited), at the very least.

Hi

Thanks for your observations. I had indeed missed this change and although the current update to the AI reads new and existing diary entries, it doesn't post new ones. :oops:

I will address this issue in the coming days and provide a solution.

Hi all

The latest release of the AI now includes changes to the Weather Diary page so that it works correctly on all screen sizes. Please upload it from the Wiki
