I have a question to MadALwx and sam2004gp, how have you done to get the graph to be colored?

Right click on the graph of interest. Then under Plot Style, they probably used Vertical Bar or Base Zero Vertical Bar.

WeatherBeacon nailed it....10.0.

For multi-colored graphs like this create the graph using vert bars. Just have to create the graph using the parameter you always want in front.

In the case of this one just right click the graph and change plot color or fill color.

Right click on the graph of interest. Then under Plot Style, scroll until you reach Vertical Bar or Base Zero Vertical Bar. Then click Close (not the X in the corner).

Unless your weather system doesn't allow changing the graphs, you should be able to right click on any graph, Meter, tank, etc in VWS to change the various properties of the item.

When you right click on a graph, what options do you see under Plot Style?

Here are my settings to do it in Version 13.  The important things is to get the colors right, and Use "Vertical Bars", also make sure the Grid Color is Transparent or the large "T" that you see as the color.

To get this:


Your settings must be this:

No i think i know what the problem is.

I only have weather data from 11:00am yesterday in history (because of a small mistake)

So i think when i get more data the bars will get closer and the picture will be like yours.

Dont you agree?

Hmm. I wonder if there was a change between v.13 and v.14. Your graph looks more like a true bar graph should.

Might also have something to do with the database timer. If you go into Settings, then Database Settings and change the Database Timer to something very small...say 1 or 2 minutes, the bars should close up more.....shouldn't they?  Axelvold, what is your database timer set to?

Ah. Good question. That might explain why some of his graphs (on his website) look somewhat stair-step like.

Maybe you need to let it run for a while at that setting. I'm using V14 P45 and even with my database timer set on 10minutes, I can get the "filled in" graph when I reset it to Vertical Bar (I normally use Thin Line).
