I've read that the hourly rain has been returned to it's original function. Can anyone tell me if a few THW & THSW Index problems have been fixed recently?

Here are the problems I'm experiencing with v14.00p31:

In the Yearly Archive Report the value reported as THW Index "Min" is this month's minimum, not this year's minimum.

THW Index Avg will not show on a meter or gauge, but will show on a thermometer.
THW Index will not show on a graph, but will show on a stripchart.
Tags for daily, monthly, annual and yesterday's high & low THW Index do not work.

THSW Index will not calculate and is always equal to the temperature.

So noted.  I discovered this after downloading and installing.  I've not noted any problems to date.

Are you able to get THW index or THSW index to plot on a 'graph'?

Do all the HTML tags for THW index seem correct?

Do any of the HTML tags for THSW index work correctly yet?

These are the big fixes I've been anxiously waiting for!

I'm confused as to which version of VWS is current compared to what I have.  Their website says the latest version is 14.00p054.  My copy which is running says it is 14:00P78, wouldn't P78 be newer than P054??  I'm running a Davis Pro2 if that makes a difference.

     That is strange, as I remember I went to the main download page this spring and downloaded the latest version for Davis and this is what I got.  It seems to be working so I won't mess with it.  It was doing weird things with the 5 day forecast until I recently figured out some how it had changed the area code to some unknown place.  i changed it back to mine and all is well now.   I wish his installs had the version number in the file name instead of just vws_install.exe  so you could know what you were installing.

That idea has been made before, I agree with you.

You can check which version you have on your computer. Click on "help" in the toolbar and then click on "About Virtual Weather Station"

     What were were talking about is what version the install file is BEFORE you install it.  When you download a new version from Ambient, no matter for what station or if it is a beta or not, ALL the files are named vws_install.exe  but are in different directories on the site. Unless you rename it when you download it there is no way to find out what version it is with out installing it..

Still waiting for THW & THSW to work correctly.

What answers does anyone have to these questions for the LATEST version...


Are you able to get THW index or THSW index to plot on a 'graph'?

Do all the HTML tags for THW index seem correct?

Do any of the HTML tags for THSW index work correctly yet?

These are the big fixes I've been anxiously waiting for!

Thanks

    Well, I probably could tell you if I know what they were, I downloaded the latest version yesterday and got P87.  I can't find anything labiled THW THSW or anything with those initials or even close under modify display or html tags.  In fact I copied ALL the tags that VWS shows in to a page for testing a while back http://members.cox.net/dsscheibe/vws/tags.htm

    Does anyone have a complete list of tags, I'm fairly sure that they aren't all listed in the html tags list.  I have a script that is calculating a value from this value
Code: [Select]
^vva165^ and it is no where in the tags list.

Still NOGO. They stillplot 0 value.

    I pasted it in to my tag test page and it seems to be working. P87    Every thing has a value except for the yearly data and the monthly low.
